The fired adjunct professor who made national headlines when she was ousted for her comments on a Fox News television show is joining the Green Party ticket as a candidate for lieutenant governor. 

Lisa Durden, 53, of Newark, announced Tuesday she was joining Seth Kaper-Dale's gubernatorial campaign. Kaper-Dale is a pastor at the Reformed Church of Highland Park. 

"I've never heard of a politician who stood strong on the angle of social issues in addition to crime, education and health care," Durden told NJ Advance Media. She says she was particularly drawn to the core message of Kaper-Dale's platform: The last are the first.
