Georgia Southern University has rebuffed state Sen. Cecil Staton, demanding full payment for the school’s share of radio broadcast revenue and rejecting his effort to cut the debt in half. The university said Staton, who chairs the Senate committee overseeing its budget, still owes $53,000 and change.
Sen. Cecil Staton‘s broadcasting company paid Georgia Southern University more than $24,000 yesterday, just hours before he denounced a report that it had breached its contract to broadcast the school’s football games. Staton lashed out at a broadcast report on the matter as “the worst side of sloppy journalism.” He did not respond to questions about the check that he sent on the same day the story aired.
