ProMarket editor Samantha Eyler-Driscoll, who resigned from the editorial board of the publication to speak out against Steve Bannon’s invitation to campus, informed her supervisors Wednesday morning that she was rejecting their requirement that she resume her original job responsibilities.

“This is obviously a retaliation by the University for political speech by staff, and it’s not appropriate at all, particularly not in this case when they’re being lauded as free speech champions—including for hate speech,” she said in an interview Wednesday.
