Some high-profile California politicians from both political parties are angrily asking the University of California to block or reverse its recent decision to increase student tuition after scathing revelations in an audit of the UC Office of the President were released this week.

Among the troubling findings, the audit, made public on Tuesday and disputed by UC President Janet Napolitano, called into question the UC system administrator’s spending on salaries and benefits to administrators, and tens of millions of dollars in reserve funds that state auditor Elaine Howle said the office kept hidden from public view.
