Committee: Fire Churchill

Woo-Hoo! Courage in Academia! A majority of Colorado University folks on the panel set up to investigate Ward Churchill have recommended that he be fired. Allahpundit has the links at HotAir. I’m reading the full report now, and it’s pretty damning.
Update: the committee went to great lengths to exclude any sort of political discussions from their investigation; they simply looked at the published materials. And on that score, he’s toast.
The real tremor from this should reverberate through the heart of every tenured faculty member who was promoted as Churchill seems to have been, solely because of his claimed race. The tenure committee that recommended him for tenure should be censured, or at the very least named, for their shoddy work here and the disrepute it has brought to their university and academe in general.

    About time. Politics aside, academic fraud is always a firing offense.

    Good news! But Churchill threatened to sue if fired, so this ain’t the end by any means.
    But it is so sweet……..

  3. Well, Jeff, maybe his shyster will bleed him dry.

    There are times when state universities (or individual campuses) fall so far off the deep end into utter left wing madness that their legislatures really should think about dissolving them and finding a better use for the money (like giving it back to the taxpayer). Of course, legislators tend to be alumni of the same institutions, so it’d probably never happen, but one can at least put the idea out there.

    I agree, Dave, and on all points. Too bad you can’t represent Churchill, and bleed him dry.

  6. Everybody be down on Ward his whole life.
