Battleground Iowa: Sally Mason Facing the Music, Phillip Jones Not Going Quietly
Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa
A lot of people are calling for Mason's head. Sally took drastic measures this week in an attempt to bolster her own credibility by firing General Counsel Marcus Mills and Dean of Students Phillip Jones earlier this week. In attempting to look decisive, Sally may have just sealed her own fate. Now, she has two very motivated enemies out to take her down with them. Yesterday, Mills was already making statements to the press that Mason knew a lot more about what was going on in the rape investigation than she is letting on. Today, Jones has notified the Regents that he is viewing this as a wrongful termination and had his attorneys (yes, that's plural) send the Regents a letter filling them in on his side of the story.
