A Florida college professor has been fired after a school investigation found that she ordered students to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the 2012 presidential elections.
The Board of Trustees at Brevard Community College (BCC) voted to fire professor Sharon Sweet. “The board voted 3-1, with one member absent, to dismiss professor Sweet,” school spokesman John Glisch told Campus Reform Wednesday afternoon.
“The termination took effect immediately, ending pay and benefits for Sweet who had been suspended with pay under provisions of the United Faculty of Florida collective bargaining agreement with the college, pending the board’s decision,” the school added in a press release.
Sweet had been placed on leave without pay while the investigation was ongoing.
Many Obama supporters (read: blacks) were shocked at the news that superstar rapper Big Boi, of multi-platinum rap group Outkast, did not vote for President Obama in the November elections.
“I voted for Gary Johnson,” the Grammy-award winning rapper told Alyona Minkovski on Huffpost Live Friday. Patton recounted how he had to set a woman straight who thought he voted his skin color instead of his conscience.
Despite what national polls say, today’s presidential election is simply too close to call.
Admitting he was “cautiously optimistic,” incumbent President Barack Obama told syndicated host Steve Harvey, “We’ve got the votes to win this thing, but only if the [voters] show up at the polls.”
Obama is obviously referring to black voters, who he defiantly dismissed earlier this year.
President Barack Obama was spotted at a campaign rally at Rollins College during a campaign stop in Orlando, Florida, today. The president mingled with supporters including five-month-old Kaydence Moore. Obama’s newfound interest in black folk is a departure from his 2008 presidential run, when he pretty much ignored the black community. President Obama is feeling the heat from challenger Romney whose poll numbers are equal to or better than Obama’s. Obama is campaigning in Florida and Northern Virginia today.
