West Liberty Faculty Vote No Confidence in President Capehart

Robin C. Capehart

The West Liberty University faculty senate has voted no confidence in President Robin Capehart, who is facing an ethics complaint.
 
The vote Monday was 13-6, according to media reports.
 
The vote follows a complaint in January by the West Virginia Ethics Commission alleging Capehart used university resources to promote his film company's movie "Doughboy."
 The complaint states that Capehart used a state credit card to promote the film and a university television station to advertise the movie, among other claims.
 

Capehart has denied the allegations.
 
The university's board of governors is expected to discuss the matter at its March 11 meeting.
 

The Ethics Commission has scheduled a public hearing for April 16 in Charleston.
