Heritage Foundation Bigotry Exposed: Jason Richwine Resigns, but Kris Kobach bogus immigration stories remain.Friday, May 10th, 2013
Looks like another bigot bites the dust!
Earlier this week, we wrote about the Heritage Foundation’s bogus Immigration study here, and now it looks like Jason Richwine may have resigned from pressure and more than likely equating race and intelligence.
That said, the Heritage Foundation still has many of anti-immigrant and bigot-filled stories on their website produced by Kris Kobach — in fact, Kobach is a non-staff member. Republican Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the author and legal arm for many anti-immigrants laws that have spread across our Nation (including Arizona’s SB1070).
According to a story by David Weigel, Jason Richwine’s friends warned him about researching connections between race and intelligence years ago. The Heritage Foundation scholar should have listened.

The Heritage Foundation tells me the news without much more detail. The full explanation:
Jason Richwine let us know he’s decided to resign from his position. He’s no longer employed by Heritage.
It is our long-standing policy not to discuss internal personnel matters.
Some background: I’d been asking whether Heritage read Richwine’s dissertation, or talked about any of the potentially explosive IQ research, before hiring him. No answer as of yet, though his deparature means the story will fade.
