As Fallout from Nassar Scandal Continues, Legislative Leaders Call for MSU President’s Resignation

The entire leadership of the state Legislature has now called for Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon to resign or be removed in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.

Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof and Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich joined state House Minority Leader Sam Singh and Senator Curtis Hertel Jr., both of Lansing, in calling for Simon’s resignation Thursday. House Speaker Tom Leonard had earlier called for Simon’s dismissal.

This follows a Detroit News report that 14 Michigan State officials, including Simon, were aware of the accusations against Nassar as early as 2014, only to clear the sports doctor after a Title IX investigation.
