A Mylan connection in improper WVU degree matter

A panel at West Virginia University [WVU] determined that there was no academic justification for retroactively granting Heather Bresch, the daughter of Gov. Joe Manchin III.

The Mylan connection, as reported by the New York Times, is as follows:

Ms. Bresch, 38, works for Mylan Inc. It is the world’s third-largest generic drug company and employs 2,000 people in Morgantown, W.Va. The company’s chairman, Milan Puskar, is a major campaign contributor to Mr. Manchin, a Democrat, and is the university’s largest donor, having given it $20 million in 2003.
