Corruption fighter Andy Martin triggers avalanche of opposition to University of Illinois payoffs to Phyllis Wise

August 21, 2015

When National corruption fighter Andy Martin advised the University of Illinois Board of Trustees he was preparing to file suit to block payments to disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise, he was alone in doing so. Within hours after Andy held a Chicago news conference to announce his litigation plans, an avalanche of people, including Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, joined Andy in asking the Trustees not to approve a payment to Wise. Andy is continuing with his plans to sue if the Trustees issue an approval on Wednesday. “Everyone was sitting on the sidelines until I acted as the ‘dam buster’ and announced my plans to sue the University if Trustees surrendered to a corrupt employee. In the wake of my news conference there has been an avalanche of protests. My plan to go to the legislature if the Trustees thumb their nose at Illinois taxpayers, should not be considered an idle threat. I am leading the way for a rebirth of public integrity in Illinois and across the nation.”

(Chicago) (August 11, 2015) When national corruption fighter Andy Martin advised the University of Illinois Board of Trustees that he was preparing to file suit to block payments and retirement benefits to disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise Andy was alone in doing so. Within hours after Andy held a Chicago news conference to announce his litigation plans, an avalanche of people, including Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, joined Andy in asking the Trustees not to approve a payment to Wise. Andy is continuing with his plans to sue if the Trustees issue any approval on Wednesday. “Everyone was sitting on the sidelines until I acted as the ‘dam buster’ and announced my plans to sue the University if Trustees surrendered to a corrupt employee,” Andy says. “In the wake of my news conference there has been an avalanche of protests. My plan to go to the legislature if the Trustees thumb their nose at Illinois taxpayers should not be considered an idle threat. University funding will almost certainly be reduced or eliminated if Trustees ignore their own fiduciary duties to act on behalf the taxpayers and stakeholders. My efforts are helping to lead the way for a rebirth of public integrity in Illinois and across the nation.”
