Slade Needs to Be in Jail

I have written many times about Priscilla Slade's ethical problems, but this tops any revelation so far:
"Ousted TSU President Priscilla Slade racked up a $100,000 bar tab at Scott Gertner's Sky Bar during her tenure and stuck Texas Southern University with the bill, prosecutors said Wednesday. TSU routinely paid for $100 bottles of wine for Slade and drinks for her friends and staff, despite a prohibition at that time on state monies being spent on alcohol, Assistant District Attorney Donna Goode said."
Say good bye Priscilla.

Side note: The story confuses me when quoting two different dollar amounts Slade is accused of misspending:
"Slade is on trial on charges of misapplication of fiduciary property of more than $200,000, accused of spending school money on personal expenses.
Slade is accused of spending more than $500,000 of the school's money on personal expenses, like home renovations, drapes and bedding."
Which is it, $200,000 or $500,000?
