UC Berkeley administrator hiked pay for employee she was seeing
And, of course, the University plays it down. No firing, no return of the money, no referral for criminal prosecution. As much omerta as possible under the circumstances.

Jonathan Caniezo, the employee who was the recipient of taxpayer money via her largesse, will keep his job, though perhaps be demoted.
