The St. Olaf (Northfield, Minn.) professor who, in a well-read Huffington Post item, recounted tearing down McCain campaign signs has resigned.
Per the Northfield News, it appears that Philip Busse was forced out.
St. Olaf spokesman David Gonnerman issued the following statement Monday afternoon:
"The St. Olaf College administration first learned of Phil Busse's self-admitted theft and destruction of campaign signs on the morning of Oct. 31 as a result of his posting on the Internet.
"The St. Olaf administration immediately referred the matter to local law enforcement authorities and commenced an investigation of its own.
"Mr. Busse has tendered his resignation and is no longer affiliated with St. Olaf College." Busse has been charged with misdemeanor theft.
Wow, The McCain administration is already fulfilling its promise to help bad teachers find new jobs!
Whoa! Not so fast there.
Okay, it’s nice he’s sacked. But how about a month or two of sensitivity training to help him get his mind right? In honor of John Rocker, if nothing else.
So we have the other HuffPo guy who wants Joe the Plumber dead, we have Black Panthers in Philadelphia intimidating voters, the nutcase out on the 101 in Southern California yesterday...
He was brand new to St. Olaf and supposedly only there temporarily.
I am a recent graduate so my rumors are fresh.
...[Philip Busse is] on the faculty list as being in the Theater Department
From acting out to out of acting...buh-bye...
Prospects for job not good for this professor - Antioch College is closed (Yellow Springs, Ohio).
FOR GREAT JUSTICE!
Yea, and then they wonder where they got all those crazy ideas and piercings.
Note to libs...."Actions have Consequences".
What a tool!
Cal Berkley will hire him immediately.
A “Nelson Munz” moment if I ever read one!!!
Thanks. The speed in dealing in it would suggest that he was either an adjunct or a visiting professor or the like. But I don’t have any first-hand knowledge of St. Olaf’s beyond the name and general reputation.
Top of the list for Education Secretary in an Obama Administration.
It’s about time one of these unAmerican creeps has to answer for his actions in academe!!! Let’s hope this jerk is relegated to working for McDonald’s after this instead of forced upon innocent students.
Once again, someone who has no business teaching has proved it.
To ruin your future (in conservative schools) with a misdemeanor? What does he teach? Who did he teach it to?
Not to worry, the lefties will gather him in and help him lick his wounds and make him a victim-martyr of the “vast right wing conspiracy.”
I’m so glad I’m retired and don’t have to worry about idiobot teachers.
