Gov. Heineman’s Comment on University of Nebraska’s Invitation to Bill Ayers

(Lincoln, NE) Gov. Dave Heineman today released the following statement regarding the University of Nebraska - Lincoln’s invitation to Bill Ayers to speak at the University on November 15.

“Chairman of the Board of Regents Chuck Hassebrook and President of the University J.B. Milliken should immediately rescind the invitation extended to Bill Ayers to speak at the University on November 15. This is an embarrassment to the University of Nebraska and the State of Nebraska. Bill Ayers is a well known radical who should never have been invited to the University of Nebraska.”
