MSU mired by newly released letters of Engler

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Controversy continues to swirl around Michigan State University leaders ahead of Friday's board of trustees meeting.

The board's last public meeting became contentious after Larry Nassar survivor Kaylee Lorincz publicly accused interim president John Engler of offering a settlement without her attorney present.


Since then, the university reached a settlement with hundreds of women, but calls for Engler's resignation have grown.

Two MSU trustees and elected officials joined the chorus last Friday after newly obtained emails show Engler accused Rachael Denhollander of receiving kickbacks and manipulating other abuse victims during the litigation process. The emails were written shortly after the April board meeting.

Plus, 150 signatures from Nassar survivors are now attached to a letter urging MSU trustees to fire the man they appointed without public discussion.

The former Michigan governor said last week he will not resign.
