Recently a memorandum was sent by Professor Brian McHale to all instructors in the English Department at Ohio State University. The memorandum states that McHale, a distinguished professor of humanities, had "been in touch with a couple of organizers for the Obama campaign, who have asked me to pass along to all of you a request for access to your classes" in order to "make a pitch to your students about registering to vote." It continues, "If you were willing, the volunteers could also take a couple of extra minutes to see whether they could interest any of your students in volunteering for the Obama campaign themselves."
This is a blatant violation of Ohio State University rules, which require the university's teachers to "differentiate carefully between official activities as teachers and personal activities as citizens, and to act accordingly."

More dead in Ohio.
This crap happens a lot, and the soapboxers are usually smart enough to sneak it into classes that by their very nature are partisan, so no students complain, and the department chairman is in on the deal.
But this defeats the purpose of the exercise, as the politicals was to recruit. They can only get some work, maybe, out of the true believers; but what they want are converts who will enthusiastically recruit their fellow students.
