A public university in Colorado offered course credit to students to volunteer on President Obamas reelection campaign, Campus Reform learned on Tuesday.
The offer, which has since been retracted, appears to have violated the Colorado Fair Campaign Practices Act, section 1-45-117, which bans the use of public resources for campaigns involving the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.
Adams State University 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.
No similar offer was made for students to participate on the presidential campaign for Mitt Romney, who is the Republican nominee for the White House.

If the situation were reversed liberals would rightly conclude that they had long since lost the culture war.
Wait just a minute, your telling me something to do with Obama has violated the law................MAJOR EXTREME SARC!!
Uncle Fester, Chancellor.
And I remember back in 1980 and 84 the networks, in the ineterest of “fairness” wouldn’t so much as show any of the old Bonzo movies, and certainly not Storm Warning, the one where Pres. Reagan, in the role as prosecutor Burt Rainey, puts the kkk in a negative light. Never mind fairness, mustn’t do anything that would shatter the libs illusions.
