- Purdue University President Mitch Daniels says his paid speech to a conservative group showed poor judgment.
- The former Republican Indiana governor had pledged to remain nonpartisan as head of the university.
- Daniels said he would donate the speech money to scholarships.
Daniels gave the speech to the Center of the American Experiment, which calls itself a nonpartisan institution that promotes "conservative and free-market ideas." Emails from when Daniels was governor of Indiana show that he tried to get a liberal scholar's writings removed from state classrooms.
