chancellor -- is spending some tax dollars .and it all started when a sports car showed up on campus. =jess/2shot= investigative reporter vicky nguyen is here now with details he doesn't play by the rules. it all started when a college chancellor showed up with unauthorized charges. >> this is ron galatano, chancellor of the san mateo college district. we received a tip after he was
11:12 pm
spotted driving this car and storing it in an abandon building on campus. when we started asking questions about the car, it led us to questionable expenses on the chancellor's credit card. she's a beauty, a replica of a 1950s porsche spider. these photos show the car parked in a building on the building of san mateo campus. it appears the temporary dmv registration was taped to the windshield. a closer look shows the car was sold to the san mateo community college district. >> the chancellor, he was the one driving the car. >> this person asked to be disguised out of fear of retaliation. he says the chancellor regularly drove the car, but no one knowsit was stored here. >> you have this porsche just sitting by itself in an abandon building. it's just -- something is up. the i mean, maybe this is just the tip of the iceberg. >> he was right. we requested a list of the cars
11:13 pm
owned by the college district. turns out, this car wasn't on that list. we weren't able to independently verify the photos, but we tracked the vin on the tag back to one of the district's leased cars, this hyundai sew national ta. we'll get to the car in a moment. but first, we went through three years of expenses charge to the district's credit cards and paid for by the public. we found chancellor galat will o, who makes $3040,000 a year, charged hundreds of dollars worth of alcohol during business meals and trips even though the district's policy says that's prohibited. >> difficult to explain. >> lisa keegan served as the state superintendent in arizona for several years examine she's the senior policy adviser on education. she says it's a common policy to ban the purchase of booze on a public credit card. that doesn't mean leaders can't purchase their own drink with dinner or pay for a client's drink. it just can't be with public funds. >> i think alcohol is restricted because the public is confliktd
11:14 pm
about it and i think that's fair. >> it was only after we dug up the original receipt that's we found more. two mojitos from the poolside bar in vegas, a $100 bottle of wine plus several glass of wine during a $400 dinner in san diego. in riverside, a $57 bottle of wine. and beers in the bay area and vietnam. but the biggest receipt we uncovered, a meal with 97 $978 tab where he charged 8 classes of wine at a staff dinner. galatolo didn't submit all detailed receipts. we found the chancellor regularly dimes on the district dime at pricey restaurants. compare that with expenses we reviewed for other bay area college leaders who have meetings at fast casual
11:15 pm
restaurants, one at mcdonald's, and we found no other records showing those leaders bought boosz with public money. hi. vickdy with nbc bay area news. >> how are you doing? >> good. did you charge alcohol to the district credit card? >> i am not quite too sure. >> we asked the chancellor for an interview to discuss his expenses. he said he would only talk with it through a live unedited news cast so we agreed. after two business days and no response, we caught up with the chancellor before a public board meeting and showed him the receipts we uncovered. >> i didn't buy mojitos in las vegas, i'm sorry. >> but here they are, clearly bought and submitted for payment. if i bought those, i guarantee you they were reim bused. >> the chancellor has not given any -- >> and listen closely, in the span of less than a minute,
11:16 pm
first, he understands district rules. >> when your policy says prohibited use, an employee is not authorized to use the procurement card for personal purchases. down here it says alcohol. >> absolute my. and that is true. >> then web didn't know what the rules were. >> and i don't know if this is our current policy with regard to that, as well. >> this policy that was in effect of march 2014? >> well over two years ago. >> that is when your purchases were made. >> i'm just saying, i don't know the timing. i'll look at the timing and look and see. >> and finally, no, he didn't know the policy. >> were you aware of this policy before we showed it to you? >> no, i was not aware of that policy before you showed it to me. >> confusing? not for these students. >> top of the food chain, he feels he can do what he wants. sometimes untouchable. i don't know. >> i feel like people in power abuse their power, like they don't have to adhere to the rules sometimes. >> he should get fired. >> that's up to the board of trustees. the rules say the card may be revoked if used to buy alcohol
11:17 pm
and board president patricia malin refused to answer our questions, e-mailing, instead, to say, quote, all the sxents expenditures made by the chancellor are within the general parameters of what the board expects of the chancellor. i also believe that my colleagues on the board would agree. >> that's a tough sell. that's a tough sell. so you have to ask yourself, if we ask it in a public meeting, would everybody go, sure, you make $300,000? sure, charge us for your bottle or wine during dinner. that's not what most people have the means to do. >> these things are absolutely petty. >> he says the meal at the mon ami was a celebration for staff and he insists he did not drink. >> i don't know if they bought drinks or not. but our staff as a whole do not drirpg. that's what i'm telling you. >> as for that porsche replica, he says it belongs to a friend. >> do you know why there was a regular administration taped in a windshield that belonged to a district window? >> no, i don't know anything about that, either. i'm sorry.
11:18 pm
>> does that make any sense to you? >> makes no sense to me whatsoever. i allowed a friend to use the vehicle here while they were getting it registered. >> i have to pay $52 for my sticker outside. i have to pay for my parking. >> how important is it for public leader, especially of public institutions, for them to be careful and cautious about how they spend public dollars? >> nothing is more important, probably, because at the end of the day, we kind of use the way you use money as proxy for your character in the position. >> the chancellor says he is proud of his work at the district. we should note, this is the same district that just got a $388 million bond approved by voters to upgrade facilities at the schools. all that money under the stewardship of this chancellor and his board. >> okay. thank you, vicki. if you have a tip for vicki wynn on this story or any other story, give us a call at 888-996-tips or send us an e-mail directly to the unit. let's switch goers and talk about the next couple of hours. we're going to start to see that
