People spending other people’s money just can’t seem to stop themselves from buying videogames.
NewsOK carries the story of 44-year old Cynthia Low, a former Senior Financial Assistant in Oklahoma State University’s chemistry department, who apparently used school funds to procure Nintendo Wii games, women’s undergarments, jewelry and a variety of sex toys.
Low left her position after hints of impropriety, but it appears tax payers may be on the hook for the tens of thousands in illicit purchases, as OSU officials said they had no choice but to pay the bills for the items.
In her position Low routinely purchased laboratory and office supplies adding up to over $10,000 per month. OSU said that it is investigating the matter and that it would not “tolerate this type of action.”
