"SAVE ASU" signs appear overnight following preliminary audit's findings

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Hours after Alabama Governor Robert Bentley released a forensic audit's preliminary findings Monday that indicate waste and wrongdoings at Alabama State University, signs are emerging around the campus and areas near ASU.

The black and white signs with bold lettering that says "SAVE ASU" can be seen from the road around campus and areas close to campus. The signs go on to accuse Governor Bentley of lies and claim he is trying to "destroy our school".

It is not known who paid for the signs or placed them.

On Monday the governor's office released a preliminary report on an internal audit of Alabama State University. The audit accuses several board members of wrongdoing.

The board members of ASU as well as Governor Bentley released statements regarding the findings of the report.

The preliminary findings concluded that auditors had found evidence of conflicts of interest, numerous contracts with no proof of work completed, financial waste, inappropriate relationships, payments to family and friends of ASU board members, inappropriate payments and intentional obscuring of inappropriate payments and circumventing policies and procedures.
