Purdue staffer who threatened rape resigns

End of January I wrote a piece “Is it Time to Gut Our Colleges”.

The question needs to be asked again with latest news out of West Lafayette:

Purdue University staff member Jamie Newman resigned from his position on Monday after refusing to issue a “full apology” for alleged online rape threats made at pro-life women.

Campus Reform initially broke the story that Newman posted a string of controversial comments on Purdue Students for Life’s (PSL) Facebook page, and then allegedly posted a comment on Live Action News threatening to rape the “wife/daughter/great grandmother” of another commenter on the site.

“Oh, I’m sorry. So, let me make my intentions quite explicit: I did in fact offer to rape Tom’s wife/daughter/great grandmother. Free of charge, even. I’m generous that way.

On Monday morning, Purdue told Campus Reform the university accepted Newman’s resignation as the “appropriate outcome.”
