Governor Robert Bentley has removed Marvin Wiggins from the Alabama State University Board of Trustees today, after Wiggins refused to resign.
In a three page letter, Governor Robert Bentley explains why he's removing Marvin Wiggins from the Alabama State University Board of Trustees. He says Wiggins had conflicts of interest and directly benefitted financially from them. But Wiggins tells us he didn't violate any of the university's statutes and will fight the governor's claims.
Wiggins is maintaining that he's done nothing wrong. We'll keep in touch with him to find out what his next step will be in fighting his termination.
Govenor Bentley has appointed Ralph Ruggs to fill Wiggins' seat.
