Hawaii Tribune Herald - - PAGE TWO -

BERKE­LEY, Calif. (AP) — Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley of­fi­cials said Thurs­day they have a “grave con­cern” of vi­o­lence on cam­pus if Ann Coul­ter fol­lows through on her vow to speak next week at the univer­sity.

Chan­cel­lor Ni­cholas B. Dirks in­stead pro­posed an al­ter­nate May 2 date for the con­ser­va­tive au­thor, re­vers­ing a de­ci­sion from a day ear­lier when of­fi­cials can­celed the event. Coul­ter took to Twit­ter to re­ject the of­fer, say­ing she will ap­pear next Thurs­day as orig­i­nally planned.

“I’m speak­ing at Berke­ley on April 27th, as I was in­vited to do and have a con­tract to do,” tweeted Coul­ter, who was in­vited to speak by cam­pus Repub­li­cans.
