State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) appeared on the National Fox News program “Fox & Friends,” this morning, where she spoke in detail about her opposition to a recent University of Illinois decision to rehire a known terrorist and murderer.
James Kilgore was originally hired by the University of Illinois in 2011, when he was two years out of prison for his involvement in a 1975 bank robbery in which a woman was killed. The robbery occurred while Kilgore was a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army, a left-wing radical militant group that considered itself a revolutionary vanguard army.
When the University learned of his criminal background he was dismissed, but a University Committee recently reversed course on the dismissal, clearing the way for him to be rehired as an adjunct professor. You may view the Ives interview on Fox & Friends here.
