A second former employee of Chicago State University has filed a lawsuit against the public institution claiming he was fired in retaliation for reporting alleged misconduct by the school’s president.

The whistleblower lawsuit brought by Glenn Meeks, the university’s former chief financial officer, comes just weeks after the university lost another wrongful termination case and was ordered to pay more than $3 million to a former employee.

Where I grew up, those surnames were familiar in the urban, working class; linked to the “Northern Factory Migration” after WWII.

In early March, the board decided that Watson violated school policy but declined to specify the breach.

Sounds like the breach was between the knees of a direct report.

Watson is a complete incompetent who has grown wealthy while damaging, if not destroying, a series of taxpayer supported public colleges and, now, a university in the State of Illinois. He has been aided and abetted by the Chicago and Illinois Democratic Machine every step of the way. Everything that he touches turns to excrement.

Such a PC way of saying that Watson was a crook and a liar, remind you of anybody else like mac daddy.

Just like California, Illinois needs to go bankrupt! Bankruptcy is the only avenue to sanity in these states. Probably CT, MA, MD, NJ, NY and a few others need to go under as well.
