Emmer Claims Hamline Backed Out On Teaching Deal
ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Former gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer says he was offered a job to teach at Hamline University’s business school, and claims the college later backed out of the deal.
The former Republican gubernatorial candidate thinks that faculty members objected to his political views, including his opposition to same-sex marriage.
Hamline said discussions to have Emmer teach there never went beyond the proposal stage. University spokeswoman JacQui Getty says the two sides never reached a final agreement.
A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says Emmer wants the school to acknowledge that it failed to honor its agreement with him.
Getty says the school has no plans to do so.
