Your tax $$ NOT at work (literally)...

Some University at Albany professors have been making a killing on sabbaticals. An audit by the State Comptroller's office has found UAlbany improperly spent over one million dollars in paid leave. Comptroller Tom DiNapoli says at least 15 employees took sabbtaicals that failed to comply with either SUNY or UAlbany policies. That includes two who were paid their full salaries--even though they didn't work on campus for a year. Employees are only supposed to be paid half of their salaries while on sabbatical. DiNapoli also says "The Comptroller's Office made recommendations to SUNY on sabbaticals and other paid leave 22 years ago that have still not been implemented."
