Calif. University Didn't Break Law in Palin Visit

Friday, 06 Aug 2010 08:10 PM

A state investigation into fundraising practices at California State University, Stanislaus found no violations of law or misuse of funds at its charitable foundation related to a Sarah Palin visit.

Attorney General Jerry Brown said Friday that the CSU Stanislaus Foundation exercised inadequate oversight of its $20 million in assets and has agreed to improve the administration of its fundraising operations.

Brown agreed to investigate the foundation at the request of state Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco.

Brown probed how the foundation spent its money, as well as the university's refusal to turn over records related to a recent fundraiser appearance by Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.
