Four more University of Illinois trustees have volunteered to quit in the wake of a scandal over trustees and politicians using their influence in the admissions process, the Chicago Tribune reported. Gov. Pat Quinn has threatened to fire those who don't resign, as has been recommended by a special state panel that investigated the admissions scandal. The latest resignation offers mean that seven of the nine gubernatorially appointed trustees have offered to quit, but two are holding out -- with one threatening to fight in court to stay on the board.
