College Professor Allegedly Tells Students To Vote For Obama


A college professor in Florida has been placed on leave after allegedly passing out Barack Obama campaign materials. Sharon Sweet of Brevard Community College is being investigated.

Allegedly, Sweet told students to sign a pledge that stated: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”

The college received a call complaining about the incident. It was then that the school began an investigation.

“Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,” wrote John Glisch, associate vice president for communications at BCC. “The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class.”

Under Florida law, an employee of the State cannot “use his or her official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with an election or nomination of officer or influencing another person’s vote or affecting the result thereof.”
