Cheaters! City College officials were caught greasing the palms of Political Action Committees with funds diverted from their lease payments. Of course, they had the best interests of their students at heart — the PAC in question supported a 2005 bond measure to supply the university with $246.3 million for construction projects (see above selection of new CCSF projects). The money has since been returned to the university and there's no word yet on legal action against the felonious faculty. Did the college officials know what they were doing was wrong? We like to think that convo went something like this scene from Animal House:
Dean Wormer: "Carmine, I don't think it's right that you should extort money from the college."
Mayor Carmine: "Look, these
buildings you want parades you throw are very expensive... So, if you mention extortion again, I'll have your legs broken."· City College of San Francisco Admits Spending Money to Pass Local Bond Measure [The Chronicle of Higher Education]
