Taxpayer-funded college in Colorado jumped into the effort to re-elect Barack Obama to the White House?
A new report from CampusReform.org reveals that a taxpayer-funded college in Colorado jumped into the effort to re-elect Barack Obama to the White House, but then backed off quickly when questioned about the political effort.
The Campus Reform report said Adams State University “offered students course credit to volunteer on President Obama’s re-election campaign.”
The move, the website reported, may have violated the Colorado Fair Campaigns Practices Act, Section 1-45-117, which “bans the use of public resources for ‘campaigns involving the nomination, retention, or election of any person to any public office.’”
The report said Adams State posted the opportunity late last week on its website stating: “The Obama Campaign Internship (GOVT 279 Presidential Election Internship) will be a 12 week long organizing internship for the Obama Campaign.”
