Although the roof of the Alamoís church, known as the shrine, had leaked since 1997, the report found that the Daughters did not approve a plan to repair it until May 2011. In addition, state money was used to operate the groupís library, although it is not a state facility, while the group improperly claimed ownership of the state-owned artifacts in the building, according to the report.
Proceeds from the Alamo gift shop, which could be spent only to maintain and repair the site, were commingled with unrestricted state dollars and the organizationís own funds. In 2009, the Daughters sought to trademark ďthe AlamoĒ in the groupís own name, over the objections of Gov. Rick Perryís office. The report found that during that dispute, the Daughters improperly used state money to pay the groupís lawyers to negotiate against the state.
