Northwestern Students, Faculty Protest Hiring of New Athletic Director
University, is facing backlash over its pick of Mike Polis Key to be the school's new athletic director. He's been the deputy athletic director since 2010 and he was named as a defendant in the federal sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former tribute earlier this year. We get more from WGN's Kelly Davis. He's one of four people cited in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Northwestern Cheerleader Hate and Richardson. Sr says cheerleaders were sexually exploited and claims that the school ignored her complaints. She specifically states that Phyllis Key accused her of fabricating evidence. Six female faculty members sent an open letter demanding greater transparency, transparency. And they led a protest outside the university president's home yesterday.
