Ah, higher education ...

From the University of Wisconsin, y'know, in the state where that nasty GOP governor Walker (or, in the parlance of our old friend and self-described champion of civil discourse[!!] Perry, "Governor Dictator Conspirator Walker") was much maligned by unions, and backers of unions (particularly the teachers unions), we see this:

A recording released by the Republican Party of Wisconsin exposes Professor Stephen Richards [UW-Oshkosh] using class time to actively campaign for the recall of State Senator Randy Hopper, encouraging his students to sign recall petitions offered by circulators present in his classroom.

In the tape, recorded during a criminal justice class, Richards can be heard encouraging a female student to sign the recall petition even though she thinks she lives outside the district, and instructing students to sign using their campus address instead of their parents' home address. He also tells students to look for petition circulators all around campus and "in the bars."

Surprising? Hardly. One, he's a college professor (just recall a couple classic movie instances regarding this tidbit: one, from "Cocktail," and the other from "Back to School" ... see also this one at around the 1:23 mark) and two, he's an ex-con. Oh, and three -- he's got a ridiculous rug on his head.
