Professor Removed From State Committee After Perceived Conflict


A Bradley University professor has been removed from his spot on a state committee that oversees the design work of roads and bridges… after he co-hosted a fundraiser for a state lawmaker who chairs the Transportation Committee.

 

Engineering firms were asked to attend that fundraiser for Senator Martin Sandoval, but complained that the involvement of Amri Al-Khafaji gave the impression of political pressure.

 

The Chicago Sun-Times reports IDOT Secretary Ann Schneider suspended Al-Khafaji from his seat on the panel that selects firms to do that design work. Al-Khafaji denies that his involvement in the fundraiser poses a conflict of interest.
