NC Public College E-Mail Urges Help for Democrats

News & Observer (Raleigh), October 20, 2010

A public university in North Carolina is smarting after someone at the school sent an e-mail to students and employees urging them to vote early and help the Democratic Party.


The university [Winston-Salem State University] told recipients to disregard the pro-Democrat e-mail after the chairman of the Forsyth County Republican Party complained.

The historically black university then sent an equal-time message inviting the same recipients to work for Republicans during early voting.
