"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Desperate and Illegal: University Sends Out E-mail Urging Students and Staff to Vote for Dems

From the Winston-Salem Journal article by Wesley Young (via Drudge):

"Some 6,400 staffers and students at Winston-Salem State University received e-mail exhortations Monday to take advantage of early voting and help the Democratic Party, setting off local Republicans.

"After a complaint by Nathan Tabor, the chairman of the Forsyth County GOP, university officials acknowledged that the e-mail — sent from the student-affairs division — was improper.

"The university cited a state law that prohibits the use of a state employee’s authority or state property to support or oppose a person or an issue in any election.

[...]

"The university said it would try to discover who sent out the e-mail and whether it was sent intentionally or accidentally in a partisan form."

LOL. I love that last line. School officials will get right on the case to determine if somebody "accidentally" sent out a partisan e-mail. The only accident that happened there was that the GOP stumbled upon the e-mail so quickly.

I wish the article had printed the e-mail... probably fear-mongering at its finest.
