How did Bill Ayers get tenure at U. of Illinois?

Every envelope I get from the Alumni Association or Foundation of the University of Illinois is returned with a note, "Not as long as you employ terrorist Bill Ayers." Accuracy in Media has an interesting theory on how and why he and his wife are teaching at the college level and why there is no investigation.
    The University of Illinois, which employs communist terrorist Bill Ayers as a professor, has been hit by an admissions scandal which has forced the resignation of the chairman of its board of trustees. An investigation by the Chicago Tribune found that more than 800 undergraduate applicants received special consideration from 2005 to 2009 because "they had powerful patrons, including elected officials, trustees and donors." It added that "Dozens more law and graduate school applicants also got preferential treatment."

    But how did Bill Ayers get his job? All signs point to his rich father, Thomas Ayers, who was CEO of Commonwealth Edison and a major power player in the Chicago establishment.

    Will the Chicago Tribune investigate this? Thomas Ayers sat on the board of the Tribune Company, which publishes the Tribune. Thomas Ayers also sat on the board of Northwestern University, where Bill Ayers' wife and fellow terrorist Bernardine Dohrn got a teaching job.
Story here.Too bad they didn't kill some dogs; PETA could go after them. Why do Illinois taxpayers put up with this travesty?

Murray sez:
We Illini have our hands full with the Federal and state government not alone worrying about what the U Of Illinois is up to. When we get them straightened out then we'll go after Ayers thank you very much! How's the state of Ohio doing? LOL

I am guessing here but could it be he is a good teacher and a bright guy with an influenial dad.. but I am only guessing. I don't know him,do you? He is just old like the rest of us and will probably retire shortly.Beside he hasn't been vocal for years that I know of or made the news since the word surefaced that he lived near Obama. Illinois has a whole bunch of other troubles that seem more important that some old guy teaching and living a low profile life.

If he'd bombed your home, you'd probably think of him differently than just some old guy in Obama's neighborhood.
