Bill Bennett going down

“…you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down.”

He’s forced to resign from the board of curriculum and learning program company K12 over the above remarks made on his radio show (see Bill Bennett’s guide to crime reduction):

K12 Inc. today announced that William J. Bennett has resigned as an employee, and as Chairman and member of the company’s Board of Directors, effective immediately. K12 Inc. said the Board accepted his resignation, thanking him for his contributions to the company. K12 Inc. said that it has no relationship with, or involvement in, Dr. Bennett’s radio program. The opinions expressed by Dr. Bennett on his radio program are his and his alone. Dr. Bennett, in a separate statement said: “I am in the midst of a political battle based on a coordinated campaign willfully distorting my views, my record, and my statements. Given the controversy surrounding the remarks I made on my radio show, I am stepping down from my positions at K12, so that neither the mission of the company, nor its children, are affected, distracted, or harmed in any way.”
