Months ago, Roselyn Spencer left her post as the longtime head of the city’s retirement system after the inspector general found she misspent more than $218,000 on renovations to the agency’s 12th and 13th floor offices on E. Redwood Street. Today, the the same watchdog released new findings indicating she spent even more–nearly $300,000–including expenses on furniture for her own office and cosmetic improvements for the agency’s board room.
