Baker is stepping down as President of NIU
Saw this story linked on Capitol Fax

Chronicle: OEIG report: NIU mismanaged by Baker

Mismanaged is an understatement. He gave a well over $400k "job" with the title of "turnaround consultant" to a friend of his, among other sins.

Here's the Full OEIG report

Reading the report it seems pretty clear that NIU staff knew the right way to do things, but Baker is a raging pain in the ass, who put them in the position of having to break rules to satisfy him.

Baker has to go.

Not sure if you know this, but giving high paying and distinguished jobs to your unqualified buddies who have zero business being in that role is all the rage in America now.

But we can still be outraged and demand change.

I agree, but to my point, given that American's don't care at all about that, why would people at NIU? Unless of course they are *GASP* hypocrites.

On a related note...this just in regarding Matt Streb:

It has been an great experience being @NIUFacAthRep. I will miss it, but time to retire the handle. I start as @NIUChiefofStaff tomorrow.

That is a good thing IMO. Not sure what that role entails, but I like Matt Streb, not only as a professor, but as an NIU advocate.

Now? ppppssssfffttt. its what our great country has been operating on from the beginning. heck, human existence is built on the coat tails of our more experienced and deserving friends/siblings/long-lost 3rd cousins.

This sort of hiring is rampant at governmental agencies. Hiring and procurement rules are circumvented all the time.
