Churchill Fallout

The woman at Hamilton College who invited Ward Churchill to appear there has resigned.
The woman who asked Ward Churchill to speak at Hamilton College - only to see the invitation rescinded following a firestorm of protest - resigned her post there Friday.

Nancy Rabinowitz said she was resigning "under duress" as director of the Kirkland Project for the Study of Gender, Society and Culture, the Hamilton program that was to sponsor Churchill's appearance.
Rabinowitz was also heavily criticized last year for offering a temporary teaching position to Susan Rosenberg. Rosenberg, a 60s radical, was involved in a 1981 armored car heist where a guard and two policeman were killed. She was sentenced to 58 years in prison but Bill Clinton granted her clemency in 2001 on his way out of the White House.
