A citizen, whose nephew attends Brevard Community College, reports that he brought home the below bookmark pledging to vote for President Obama.

This occurred while the student was in class at the request of his College Algebra teacher, Sharon Sweet, from Brevard Community College in [Melbourne] Florida.

Our tax dollars are being used to brainwash our children... that's not nice...
From the Tea Party to Asst. Prof. Sweet: Honey, can you send us that “T” in your title? You don’t seem to be using it and we need it.
I notice they want the pledge fo vote for Dems first and THEN offer information. Ready, fire, aim.
Brevard county's, Sharon Sweet needs an anal exam to see if she suffers from headaches.
I will call, but what about doing more?
I checked this chick’s ‘rate my professor’ rankings and comments. Here’s one:
“She is an aweful (sic) person. Told the class no excuses you miss a test its an F. My sister passed away, I got an F, for attending her funeral. Sad Sad Lady. She doesn’t explain and doesn’t help”
Her rankings are 2s, very low.
Truth in posting - I’m a professor and normally don’t care what an 18 yr old skull full of mush feels about a physics class, for example. I think that RMP is often used by the unhappy, the stupid, or the ones who found out they’d have to work in class and didn’t like it, skewing the results, but in this case, I’m willing to take all posts as gospel. : )
I'd suggest to wait a day and see what develops.
This is outrageous and clearly coersion of students by a rabid fan of the Empty Chair in Chief!
Please ping me when you set contact info.
Here is the professor's email.... firstname.lastname@example.org
Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
Subject: BCC Statement on faculty political activity
Dear Ms. *******,
Thank you for your recent email regarding questions about the political activities of a faculty member of Brevard Community College.
College officials issued this statement today, and we felt it was important to update you on the situation.
The statement reads:
Brevard Community College has received complaints alleging politically-based inappropriate behavior on the part of Associate Professor Sharon Sweet, an instructor of mathematics.
The allegations center on her soliciting support in her classes for President Obama in the upcoming election.
College officials learned of the allegations Thursday afternoon, Sept. 13, following a call from a concerned parent and immediately began an investigation.
The College has specific policies that address the political activities of faculty and staff, which state that no College employee shall solicit support for a political candidate during regular College work hours or on College property.
Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately.
The College will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her classes.
Additionally, the College is taking steps to reiterate its policy on political activity to all faculty and staff.
For questions, contact John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications, at (321) 433-7017, or email@example.com.

Cudos to Mr. Glisch!
And to Brevard CC, well done!
I called today and got a “we have no comment on this matter”...click!
Will we all just drop it now?
I read the “sweetie” requested a leave without pay...I wonder if that changes the “rules” about total removal from the school.
Some others may be much more careful now!
How much do you want to bet that Prof. Sweet asked for the leave of absence because she was offered a job by the Obama campaign?
I saw that and was pleasantly surprised.
I sent it to him, did you do it too?
I should check the Blaze.
