Was it our hapless governor who barred United Freedom Front leader, Luc Levasseur, from speaking? Of course not. His parole officer put the kibosh on it.
Domestic terrorist Raymond Luc Levasseur won’t speak at University of Massachusetts-Amherst tomorrow night because his federal parole officer in Maine won’t let him travel out of that state for the controversial event, the ex-con told the Herald.
Gov. Deval Patrick and UMass officials had tried unsuccessfully to block Levasseur’s speech but the event was going forward – sponsored by a program at the publicly funded school – until Levasseur’s parole officer pulled the plug. UMass officials and Levasseur’s parole officer did not return calls seeking comment.
Levasseur’s wife may take his place at the forum, Levasseur told the Herald. The event will also include defense lawyers and jurors who served on Levasseur’s conspiracy case.
I still say not a single penny of taxpayer funds should be allocated towards this event.
