MSU President Lou Anna Simon resigned last night in the wake of the Nassar sentencing. In the comments yesterday, there was some concern over whether it was right for her to quit or be forced out. I have no such concerns, and since I pretty much agree with Scott Lemieux at LGM, I won’t repeat his arguments here.
Another concern in the comments was Judge Rosemarie Aquilina’s statement that she had signed Nassar’s death warrant. I’d suggest that anyone who’s concerned about judicial overreach watch her entire set of sentencing remarks to understand the context in which she made the statement. Overall, it was the opposite of a thoughtless rant.
