This story reveals “patronage, corruption and waste in Alabama's two-year college system. Major findings include: everyone in Chancellor Roy Johnson's immediate family was on the system payroll; campuses gave jobs to relatives of systems officials, often bypassing hiring practices; nearly a third of Alabama's legislators or their relatives received pay from the system; system contractors paid for or performed work on homes owned by Johnson and others; software company received millions of dollars in system officials and lobbying firms, despite a ban on such payments; state attorney general asked Johnson for favors while his prosecutors investigated the system.”
