Board spokeswoman Delena Bratton said board auditors launched a review of Bennett's expense reimbursements after they received allegations from Bennett's opponent in the June 5 Democratic primary, Joseph F. Micallef, a former board auditor.

The vanity plate on his Jaguar is TAXCAT1, and the lettering on its frame says it all: Success is the best form of revenge. The proud owner is Joseph Micallef, a onetime State Board of Equalization auditor fired by the tax agency 12 years ago for skipping work and falsifying time sheets. First he declared bankruptcy.

Over the last two years, State Board of Equalization member William Bennett has collected thousands of dollars in reimbursement for out-of-town meals and lodging that state records indicate he never purchased.
