Trustee Tweets About Hanging Hillary Clinton

August 8, 2016

Nathan Miller, who serves on the governing board of California's Riverside Community College District, is under fire for last week tweeting a picture of an executioner with a noose and the phrase "I'm ready for Hillary," The Press-Enterprise reported. Miller resigned from his post on a state taxation board but has not stepped down from the Riverside board, despite calls from faculty and students.

“Though we are not surprised by the descent into such crude incivility given the broader political culture, we are determined to shield our great public institution of higher learning from this infection,” the district's Faculty Association said in a written statement. “Mr. Miller’s behavior is not acceptable in our community -- we wouldn’t tolerate it from our students.”
