CHICAGO, March 24 (UPI) -- A suburban Chicago firm has hired former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., as a strategic adviser.

Hastert, who retired from Congress last year, will work for the Goeken Group of Naperville, Ill., a medical records firm and parent company of Global Med-Net and Global Med-Net International, the Chicago Tribune reported Monday.

The firm develops databases of medical information that can be accessed in an emergency.
