Convicted terrorist scheduled to speak Tuesday night before presidential debate

[Daily Caller - comments at full story link]

A convicted terrorist released from federal prison in December 2008 is
scheduled to speak in Hofstra University's 'public area' outside
Tuesday's presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney,
The Daily Caller has learned.

Andrew Stepanian, a felon who went to prison for animal enterprise
terrorism, appears on Hofstra University's published schedule at 8:00
p.m., during the hour before the debate begins. Stepanian runs The
Sparrow Project, a left-wing PR project whose website indicates
connections with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Stepanian, an ardent animal rights activist, was convicted in 2006 of
terrorism stemming from a criminal conspiracy to target a company that
tested medications on laboratory animals. He received a three-year
sentence for his activities on behalf of Stop Huntingdon Animal
Cruelty (SHAC).

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, then the U.S. Attorney for the state,
oversaw the prosecution of SHAC and six of its members under the
Animal Enterprise Protection Act, a 1992 law -- later updated in 2006 --
whose only section is titled 'Animal Enterprise Terrorism.'
