BREAKING: Liz Magill has Resigned as the President of Penn
Liz Magill has resigned following her disastrous answer to New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik when she asked whether calling for the genocide of Jews would violate Penn's code of conduct, Magill answered "It is a context-dependent decision."
After the testimony, 70 House representatives signed a bipartisan letter on Friday calling for the resignation of Magill, along with Harvard University President Claudine Gay and Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Sally Kornbluth, who similarly floundered on the question.
in a post Magill claimed to her followers on X “I was not focused on – but I should have been – the irrefutable fact that a call for genocide of Jewish people is a call for some of the most terrible violence human beings can perpetrate. It's evil. Plain, and simple," Magill said in the video. “I want to be clear: A call for genocide of Jewish people … would be harassment or intimidation."
