A Northern Illinois University committee says the school should revoke Dennis Hastert’s honorary law doctoral degree. That’s according to a news release from the university.
According to a news release, the committee said in a memo to President Doug Baker that Hastert’s recent felony conviction and sexual abuse testimony “do not reflect the values of the institution.”
Baker will take the recommendation to the NIU Board of Trustees during its 2 p.m. May 19 meeting. Additional comment from NIU officials was unavailable.
