SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — A western New York town supervisor wants to cut ties with the National Women's Hall of Fame after learning actress Jane Fonda will be among this year's inductees.

Seneca Falls Supervisor Greg Lazzaro released a resolution to the media last week that would eliminate the town's support of the Hall of Fame out of respect for veterans. He cited Fonda's actions during the Vietnam War. The resolution is expected to be proposed at Tuesday's town board meeting.

Fonda has acknowledged making a "terrible mistake" during a 1972 visit to North Vietnam when she posed on an anti-aircraft gun designed to shoot down American planes.

The Hall of Fame said it welcomes the opportunity to open a dialogue to discuss the town's concerns.
