Quote:A college professor at Brevard Community College (BCC) in Cocoa, Fla. has been placed on leave after she allegedly required her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Barack Obama “and Democrats up and down the ticket.

Campus Reform reports that professor Sharon Sweet at BCC allegedly told students to sign a pledge that states: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”

The pledge came from “GottaVote.org,” a website paid for by the Obama campaign.

The Leadership Institute’s Campus Reform has more:


University administrators said they learned about the incident late Thursday afternoon and launched an investigation, after they received a phone call from a concerned parent.

“Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,” reads a statement put out by John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications at BCC.

“The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class,” continues the statement.

In addition to being inappropriate action in the classroom, Sweet’s pledge requirement may have also violated Florida election law.

Section 104.31, of Title IX in chapter 104, states that “no officer or employee of the state… shall… use his or her official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with an election or nomination of officer or influencing another person’s vote or affecting the result thereof.”

While I fully support the 1A, I also think that education ought to teach us how to think, not tell us what to think.

I am pleasantly surprised that the school followed the law and is taking this seriously.?

Agreed. Even though most Colleges and Universities teach a very liberal point of view this went way too far. Why cant these institutions just teach and not push their agendas onto every student. This is one of the many problems going on with this Country.

It applies to the academia as well.
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.

It's all way to far, the goal is communism and colleges have been training centers. One moldable yute at a time.

I have 5 children, all college grads.....ONE got molded and the rest went toe to toe with these Liberal bastards. Successfully I might ad.

4 have LCTF and one not, guess which one.

This professor needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as an example to other leftist douche bags that this sort of shit cannot go on.

I'm sure there's many other professors that are just as guilty as this one, but just not stupid enough to put it in writing.

Amazing on leave with no pay.
