Tom Hayden of ‘Chicago 7’ Dead at 76

Liberal crusader Tom Hayden has died at age 76. From The Los Angeles Times: “President Nixon’s Justice Department prosecuted Hayden in the raucous ‘Chicago 7’ trial following the violent clashes with police at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Hayden later married actress Jane Fonda, and the celebrity couple traveled the nation denouncing the war before forming a California political organization that backed scores of liberal candidates and ballot measures in the 1970s and ’80s, most notably Proposition 65, the anti-toxics measure that requires signs in gas stations, bars and grocery stores that warn of cancer-causing chemicals.”
