Probe: Ex-Texas Southern University leader knew about fraud
HOUSTON (AP) - An internal investigation revealed that an ousted head of Texas Southern University knew about the university giving low-performing students more than $400,000 in scholarships in a ploy to increase enrollment. Charla Parker-Thompson, TSU’s chief internal auditor, released information about corruption in the school's admission process after former TSU President Austin Lane reached a buyout agreement with the university's board of regents. The 17-page report was dated for Wednesday. Lane had been removed from his position for failing to report alleged fraud and directing a former official to violate university policy.
