Troughour investigations, we ound bribery, conspiracy to commit mail raud, improper overtimepayments, improper use o lease proceeds, and improper travel expenses. As an example o oneo these improper acts, we determined that a Franchise ax Board employee, an Oce o theSecretary o State employee, and a courier service owner engaged in an elaborate scheme thatenabled the courier service owner to steal nearly a quarter million dollars rom the State. Tethree individuals were convicted o bribery

For example, in September 2005, we reported that the Department o Correctionsand Rehabilitation (Corrections) had ailed to track hours available in a release time bank andhad inappropriately paid leave to certain union representatives. In January 2012 Correctionsreached an agreement with the Caliornia Correctional Peace Ocers’ Association (union) thatrequires the union to pay the State a total o $3.5 million or all Corrections employees onull-time union leave.Respectully submitted,ELAINE M.
