The state Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating more than four dozen CalPERS board members and employees over allegations that they failed to accurately report gifts.
The 49 names on a list obtained by The Bee from the FPPC include CalPERS Board Chairman Rob Feckner and board members George Diehr and J.J. Jelincic. Chief Investment Officer Joe Dear is named, as is former CEO Fred Buenrostro. Buenrostro has been named separately in an ongoing investigation of influence peddling at the fund that is unconnected to the FPPC matter.
FPPC Executive Director Roman Porter confirmed that the commission is investigating and the employees and board members involved. CalPERS has cooperated fully and without subpeona, he said. In keeping with the commission's policy, Porter provided no other information.
CalPERS CEO Anne Stausboll said in a statement that, "CalPERS has been fully cooperating with the FPPC on this investigation over the last several months. These matters are still pending and our staff involved have due process rights."
Here's the full list of those named in the investigation:
