In the news: Coverage of alderman’s query on Muslim student group

We told you here yesterday that a story involving two UW-Green Bay alumni, Heba Mohammad ’14 and Green Bay Alderman Chris Wery ’93, was making headlines locally and even nationally after Wery’s response to a transit-based inquiry from Mohammad went viral on social media. The alderman apologized to Mohammad Tuesday (Oct. 21) after responding to her question about free public bus service on Election Day with his own questions about whether she and the Muslim Student Association she founded condemn Islamic terrorism. Mohammad, Wery and Prof. David Coury, adviser of the student group, have been quoted extensively by news media in stories appearing last night and today. USA Today picked up the Green Bay Press-Gazette story on the matter; that piece and a sampling of other coverage is as follows:
