When speaker Donald Tucker first arrived at the Sacramento Public Library as director of facilities in 2007, he noticed a large number of expensive repairs in the records. After researching the charges, he realized that they were not errors in the financial data, but gross overcharges for typical repairs and services. This discovery lead to a large internal investigation, a Grand Jury report, a civil judgment and several felony convictions with multi–year prison terms for the Library staff members involved.
