In February 2009, shortly after Governor Rod Blagojevich was removed from office and in the midst of the state's financial crisis, Bomke, announced a bill which targeted William Ayers for removal from his teaching position at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The proposal states that anyone "who has committed an act of violence against the governments of the United States or Illinois cannot work at a public university." Senator Bomke is a small-business owner.
