Fall of the Czar?

, Tony Perkins, Leave a comment

It seems that the President’s safe schools “czar” pushed more than the envelope in his career. Lately, some new information has surfaced about the kind of sexual activities that Kevin Jennings promoted to young kids–each report more disturbing than the last. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), along with 52 of his House colleagues, called for Jennings ‘s head back in October. This week, he’s demanding answers.

In a new letter to the White House, Rep. King writes, “My colleagues and I, along with the American people, deserve to know why Mr. Jennings is still serving in your administration, despite his lack of appropriate qualifications or ethical standards… To date, we have received no response… Due to the inaction of your Administration, Representative Michael Burgess has introduced a resolution calling for Kevin Jennings to be fired from his post as ‘Safe Schools Czar’ immediately. I am disappointed that concerned Members of Congress have been forced to resort to legislative action as a result of your unwillingness to act on this important matter.” Meanwhile, FRC has produced a special video on Jennings and we encourage you to click here and watch it.
