Corruption in university politics

Remember the uproar over Crackergate? Webster Cook, the student who was harassed and received death threats for taking a piece of bread out of a church, has been impeached from his position in the university senate. What's galling is that the impeachment proceedings against him seems to have been corrupted so that he could neither defend himself nor were the testimony against him verified.

I don't know if it was religiously motivated or whether it was pure dirty politics, but it's corruption nonetheless. They went to all this trouble to impeach someone for taking a piece of food; somehow I doubt they're going to try anything against the people who made death threats against Webster Cook, something infinitely more serious.

  1. Very short and sweet and to the point.

    Do you think it could be a combination of dirty politics and religious motivation ?

  2. If I had to make a guess, it would be the school council being politically motivated to use dirty tricks for fear of religiously motivated bigots making a stink. So it would be both, just in separate people.

    Of course, being far removed from the situation, this is pure speculation.
