At least one Bay Area lawmaker is calling on University of California President Janet Napolitano to resign following a new report showing that top officials in her office interfered with a state audit last year.
“From what I’ve seen, I really do think it’s time for the UC system to make a break from President Napolitano,” Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, R-Dublin, vice chair of the Higher Education Committee, told the Bay Area News Group. “She has not taken full responsibility — and she has not been completely forthright with the committee.”
But the board of regents that oversees the 10-campus system unanimously decided Thursday that Napolitano should remain at the helm, even as some regents expressed outrage at her actions.
And why not? The regents make up a big part of the UC crime family and the criminal enterprise they head.
