Plus, former Chicago State University Director of Compliance & Interim VP for Enrollment Management Shon Kyle joins the conversation in the studio as she tells her story of how she was accused of allegedly hiring her mother in an ongoing “ghost payroll” scam which she is currently still fighting. “I used to make a joke about it, but I literally could not leave the state to save my life,” says Kyle.
According to Kyle, the accusations came after she blew the whistle of a separate issue. She was found innocent of 17 counts of fraud including five counts of official misconduct, two counts of wire fraud and four counts of computer fraud in April 2015.
