In February 2010, the Special Investigations Unit received an allegation of fraud involving a state warrant issued by the Office of the Comptroller of Public Accounts. Ms. Davis reported not receiving a warrant from the Teacher Retirement System for her retirement pension. After a second warrant was issued, Ms. Davis cashed both the original warrant and the second warrant. Ms. Davis had requested the original warrant after ending her employment with MISD.
