Governor Bentley requests delay in ASU board meeting

The Alabama State University Board of Trustees has delayed a meeting that could determine the fate of the school's president. Governor Robert Bentley requested the delay.

An executive committee of the board placed school president Joseph Silver on leave this week.

Silver says it happened after he inquired about the school's finances. Silver also tried to fire the school's Executive Vice President.

In a statement, Silver says that he got no cooperation when he raised questions about financial information, and requested documentation.
