Tim Sullivan, president of the University of Connecticut College Republicans, said in a recent interview with Fox News that the review of Ben Shapiro’s upcoming event is inconsistent with that of attorney Anita Hill’s event, which took place at UConn last week as part of a convocation in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Shapiro, a conservative journalist and talk show personality, was invited by the UConn College Republicans to give his discussion titled “Say No to Campus Thuggery.” His event was subjected to updated speaker review policies put in place after an incident at an event last November with conservative journalist for the Gateway Pundit, Lucian Wintrich.
