Christian College Removes Hastert's Name After Indictment

A Christian college in suburban Chicago has removed the name of former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert from an academic research center. Wheaton College announced Sunday that what had been known as the J. Dennis Hastert Center for Economics, Government and Public Policy is now just named after the school. Hastert resigned from the research center's board Friday, one day after the release of a federal indictment accusing him of violating banking laws by agreeing to pay $3.5 million in hush money to keep a person silent about unspecified "prior misconduct."
