Joseph Silver, Alabama State

Alabama State University president Joseph Silver asked the board of trustees about contracts he found suspicious, and he was forced to resign. Two weeks later reports surfaced that the Alabama Bureau of Investigation was investigating "several instances of student aid fraud." The board temporarily replaced Silver with Rep. John Knight Jr.
