  • Unions Claim Prop 32 Would Rob Them Of Political Power

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Labor union members claim Proposition 32, which would limit how unions raise money for California political campaigns, would rob them of their political power. A clause in the proposition on the November ballot would prohibit unions from payroll-deducted funds for political purposes. Jack Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College, said the provision weakens the ability of unions to participate in elections. “They could still try to get voluntary donations from members, but without that steady stream of income via the payroll deductions, it would be a lot harder for them,” he said.

    Claremont McKenna College, a private liberal arts college 60 miles east of Los Angeles, drew national attention earlier this year when its dean of admissions, Richard Vos, was caught deliberately misreporting the SAT scores that students had achieved before attending CMC. VosÂ’s goal was to reach the coveted 1400 SAT average for highly selective liberal arts colleges. He resigned soon after the scandal emerged in January, but not before touching off a debate about the lengths to which colleges will go to boost their rankings. Journalists and education-policy experts lectured about the corrupting effect of U.S. News and World ReportÂ’s...
  • California college administrator admits faking SAT scores for years, resigns

    A senior administrator at California's Claremont McKenna College resigned after admitting that for years he falsified SAT scores to publications such as U.S. News & World Report to inflate the small, prestigious school's ranking among the nation's colleges and universities, according to the college's president. President Pamela Gann told college staff members and students about the falsified scores in an email Monday, The New York Times reported. Gann wrote that a "senior administrator" had taken sole responsibility for falsifying the scores, admitted doing so since 2005, and resigned his post. Gann wrote that she was first warned of inaccurate reporting...

    Instead of censuring Bassam Frangieh for his support of terrorist organizations, the college administrators regard him as a major asset. Claremont McKenna College is a nationally recognized leader in training Defense Department officials and State Department personnel (including numerous ambassadors). Professor Bassam Frangieh is head of Claremont McKenna’s Arabic Department and Middle East Studies program, where he teaches tomorrow’s diplomats about the Middle East, plans study-abroad programs — and supports recognized terrorist groups, namely, Hezbollah and Hamas. In the wake of Hamas’s election victory in 2006, Frangieh told an interviewer that he looks to Hamas with “great joy” and supports...

    Though it has been a long 53 years since former President Harry S. Truman was in office, he was the hot topic of conversation at The Hudson Institute on Monday, July 17, where a panel discussed his legacy and influence on current policies. Truman’s defense-laden foreign policy has recently been compared to President George W. Bush’s tactics for the War on Terror; an association that was a major point of discussion for the three members of the panel. While the speakers all had their own specific opinions of the Bush-Truman comparison, they all praised Truman’s policies while he was in...

    What Did Hate-Crime Hoaxer Dunn Cost the Colleges?  That's the big question the judge asked at her sentencing, which was postponed to December 15, following a psychiatric evaluation of the hate-crimes hoaxer. Calling Claremont McKenna College professor Dunn a "bald-faced liar," Judge Horan stated: '"Ms. Dunn doesn't have to stand up and say she did it," Judge Charles Horan said during Friday's hearing. "But it sure would help the court in deciding whether prison time is appropriate."' According to a reliable source, an alumnus of the Colleges who attended the hearing: 'The judge was disappointed--his word--that there was no one...

    POMONA - A former visiting Claremont McKenna psychology professor was sentenced to a year in state prison on Wednesday for falsely reporting that her car was damaged in a campus hate crime. A father's plea for mercy and a river of tears didn't win any leniency for Kerri Francis Dunn, who launched the community into tumult in March when she claimed her Honda was sprayed with racial and anti-Semitic slurs while she spoke at an anti-hate forum. Police later concluded she vandalized the car herself. "What she did was at least temporarily terrorize the minority students on campus and make...

    Juicy new details about that intolerant California professor who got a year in prison for faking a "hate crime" against herself: The judge denounced her for "terrorizing" minority students. Pomona Superior Court Judge Charles Horan further slapped down psychology professor Kerri Dunn because she "turned the rest of the students into suspects, adding that her actions could have sparked major racial violence," NBC Channel 4 reported in Los Angeles. "He likened her actions to calling in a fake bomb threat, saying it had the effect of terrorizing people." Deputy District Attorney Martin Bean agreed. "From what I saw in the...

    Remember that left-wing egghead at Claremont McKenna College who vandalized her own car and then cried "hate crime"? Today she got sentenced to a year in the slammer. Kerri Dunn, who is, naturally, a professor of psychology, falsely claimed that her Honda was spray-painted with racist and anti-Semitic slurs. She had faced up to three years in a California prison for filing a false police report and two felony counts of attempted insurance fraud. Get this: Miss Dunn staged the criminal hoax and launched a headline-grabbing spree of "hate crime" hysteria (as opposed to all those "love crimes" being committed...

    Dunn jailed for psych review By ROD LEVEQUE, STAFF WRITER POMONA - A judge sent a former Claremont McKenna professor to state prison on Friday for 90 days psychological testing after the judge called her a "bald-faced liar" for continuing to deny she vandalized her own car and reported it as a hate crime.

Rather, Judge Charles Horan temporarily remanded her into custody and said he would use reports from prison examiners to help him decide whether to sentence the Redlands woman to probation or additional time behind...

    Professor's past in play at fraud trialBy ROD LEVEQUESTAFF WRITERPOMONA - Kerri Dunn's past could come back to haunt her if she chooses to take the witness stand in a trial set to begin today. Dunn, the college professor accused of vandalizing her own car and falsely reporting it as a hate crime, may be confronted during her trial with a 4-year-old allegation that she once faked injuries to herself and then blamed them on police during a shoplifting arrest in Nebraska, a judge ruled Thursday. Prosecutors may also try to impeach her testimony by questioning her about a shoplifting...
