  • It happened 30 years ago, he did go to jail and pay a fine, and as far as I know, the last time he had any real big thing come up was in 2001 right after 9/11 when he said he wish he had did more. Not sure about the teaching thing.

  • The reasoning behind it is that McShame's camp is desperate.

  • TO ANONYMOUS:

    THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OBAMA OR MC CAIN RIGHT NOW I JUST WANTED TO KNOW WHY HE IS OUT AND TEACHING? HOW CAN THIS BE?

  • i agree with you iloveprater . the only thing I can think of is that since the charges were not "serious" and because it was so long ago, they are ok with him teaching because he is a "great teacher" and he has done "good things" to "redeem" himself because people do change afterall (this is what I have been told by liberals even though he must not have change that much if he is not sorry for what he did). I don't know anything about the college he teaches it but since they employ him it is probably extremely liberal and supports Obama.

  • He got off on a screw up with the investigation. Plain and simple--the system let him go:-( He is not sorry and was Obama's first political supporter.

  • he was never convicted of terrorism. akin, are you suggesting that Ayers is doing anything criminal now, or do you just not have a problem with double indemnity?
