Gov. Bentley Says He Doesn't Want To Run ASU
Alabama's governor is brushing off criticism that he's trying to run Alabama State University and says he will continue a financial review of university spending.
Gov. Robert Bentley released preliminary findings from a forensic audit last week. It questioned $2.5 million in spending and accused the university of hindering the audit.
Bentley is president of the university board of trustees by virtue of his office, and he's called a special board meeting Oct. 28 to discuss the findings.
Some critics have accused him of trying to run the university.
Bentley said Monday that's not his goal. He said he wants the university's trustees to take their responsibility seriously, and he wants to find a university president who is independent and has a background in finance.
