A report from the Cook County inspector general found problems with the management of a controversial "jeans day" fundraiser run by Dorothy Brown, the Clerk of Circuit Courts.
The report released Thursday afternoon found funds from the "jeans day" events were co-mingled with money from other sources and there was poor record keeping about the number of employees who contributed to the fundraiser.
The report by Cook County Inspector General Patrick Blanchard ultimately found nothing that rose to the level of "an allegation of misconduct or wrongdoing."
"Jeans day" was a fundraiser managed by Brown's staff which allowed employees of the Circuit Court to wear jeans if they made a cash donation. Those funds were to be used to fund various charitable efforts in the office.
Blanchard's report did find 11 cases where money from "jeans day" accounts was used to pay for things not related the charitable mission of the fundraiser.
The report said Bulls tickets, tickets to Great America and employee parking expenses were improperly paid for with "jeans day" accounts.
