Petition seeks to take away Giuliani's honorary St. John Fisher doctorate

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — There's a new push to have lawyer Rudy Giuliani's honorary doctorate from St. John Fisher College taken away.

An online petition has begun to make the rounds and currently has nearly 300 signatures. The college gave Giuliani the honorary degree back in 2015.

The petition says Giuliani's comments on last week's scene at the Capitol and on the 2020 presidential election do not reflect the values and mission of the college.

This comes as the New York State Bar Association explores expelling him for the same comments.
