    Oh yeah, she's suspended, but why is this Obama group soliciting this?:

    College suspends professor for allegedly attempting to force students to vote for Obama

    GottaVote.org. I searched the entire site and found no pledge. The blog you are pulling your OP from is extremely biased, but, you go with what you know. I doubt the story is fully accurate.

    I've seen this on several sites. Most don't say the pledge came from gottavote, but that book markers from that site were handed out.

    There's no such "pledge" on the gottavote.org website.

    If this is true, then it's pretty fucked up.

    But I think your story might have some facts wrong.

    If the story is true it's really one of those "what the heck was she thinking?" stories.

    less biased source, same outcome regarding professor:

    Here's a 'warning' to professors from a well respected educator site:

    Beware of Partisan Politics in the Classroom - The Conversation - The Chronicle of Higher Education

    This reminds me of a test that me niece took in high school. One of the questions was "who won the 2000 Predidential election". Her answer was of course Bush, and the teacher marked it wrong. My brother confronted the teacher in conference and the teacher wouldn't back down.
