STILLWATER, Okla. — The National Wrestling Hall of Fame said Monday that it has revoked all honors for Dennis Hastert after the former House speaker was accused of sexually abusing teenagers decades ago.

The Oklahoma-based organization said its Board of Governors approved the revocation after its ethics committee found that Hastert’s actions were “detrimental to the ideals and objectives” of the Wrestling Hall of Fame.

Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to breaking federal banking rules to cover up sexual abuse of high school athletes when he was a wrestling coach.
