Cal State San Marcos executives leave university on eve of critical audit
President Ellen Neufeldt declines to discuss specific reasons for the changes.Lunchtime demonstration drew sparse but angry crowd Advertisement Neufeldt could not be reached for comment. The controversy began in June 2019 after CSUSM received an anonymous tip that one of the school’s executives had engaged in excessive spending. Neufeldt took office a month later and launched an audit, which led to a larger CSU audit that will be released this week. The Union-Tribune Watchdog team undertook an investigation in 2019 that revealed questionable spending by CSUSM officials, including Schroder. Documents showed that he had taken chauffeured limousine rides, booked luxury resort stays and purchased expensive meals, including a $110 steak. The U-T investigation also raised questions about spending by Karen Haynes, the university’s former president. Among other things, Kaynes used university funds for a $760-a-night luxury hotel stay, as well as expensive food and wine. The investigation also showed that Haynes spent $731 to pay for a chauffeured sedan ride to and from Los Angeles International Airport for an education trip to South Africa in 2018. Neufeldt addressed the spending issue last Thursday in a public speech, announcing that the school was updating its travel policies and guidelines to prevent potential abuse of travel funds. “I have to openly acknowledge that there have been a few instances that can’t be excused as mere clerical oversight,“ Neufeldt said. Advertisement “We are seeing trends where travelers frequently purchase upgraded airfare or select hotels where the lodging costs exceed the maximum rates. In some rare cases, I’ve seen things that are simply inexcusable.” San Diego Union-Tribune reporters Jeff McDonald and Morgan Cook contributed to this report. Read more: Los Angeles Times

New York state sues Trump admin over Global EntryAfter DHS banned New Yorkers from trusted traveler programs, New York Atty. General, Letitia James, called the move “political retribution.” She joins Ali Velshi to discuss why she’s suing the Trump administration for the 35th time, and explains why these programs are critical to New York’s economy. Immigrants do not have a “right” to come here. Our elected officials absolutely do have the right to control who enters and who doesn’t. Is it possible it's actually about local and national security... and NOT your pathetic identity politics & systemic victimhood? What bs.. The immigration problem has nothing to do with xenophobia and all to do with legality and security. You're FakeNews
Investors are counting too much on a Trump win, warns State StreetInvestors are 'sanguine' about Trump winning reelection. “Investors clearly are not factoring in any kind of likelihood of a Democratic win,” warns State Street. That's what he does. He wins. ah, come on, have the balls to say it -- sudden reinstatement of pollution regs, regulation of financial markets, tax changes to benefit the middle class would really really hurt the 5%ers....can't allow that to happen.... Capitalism with a heartbeat that cares for others and our planet would support an economy built on “good” and not simply “greed”. It is, moreover, sustainable.
