Sean Hannity, jumps on the Anti-Kagan bandwagon and does his part to further a myth about Kagan banning military recruiters from the Harvard campus during her tenure as dean of Harvard Law School.
HANNITY: The White House actually released their own video of Elena Kagan, their choice for — the president’s choice for the Supreme Court. Her most notable act, of course, is throwing military recruiters on college campus at Harvard, you know, off the college campus in the middle of a war in violation of federal law. And even the most liberal members of the Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, said she didn’t have the right to do that.
Not so fast, Sean…
Throughout Kagan’s tenure as dean, Harvard law students had access to military recruiters — either through Harvard’s Office of Career Services or through the Harvard Law School Veterans Association.
Additionally, there was, apparently, no adverse affect.
[T]he number of graduates from each of those classes who entered the military was equal to or greater than the number who entered the military from any of Harvard’s previous five classes.
