Governor Removes Alabama State Trustee

July 28, 2014

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley on Friday removed Marvin Wiggins as a trustee of Alabama State University, AL.com reported. Bentley said that Wiggins had violated conflict of interest rules in numerous ways. The governor said that Wiggins' wife inappropriately received $30,000, and that Wiggins did not inform the university, when it hired his sister-in-law as a professor, that she had been disbarred. Wiggins could not be reached for comment.
