Some 6,400 staffers and students at Winston-Salem State University received e-mail exhortations Monday to take advantage of early voting and help the Democratic Party, setting off local Republicans.
After a complaint by Nathan Tabor, the chairman of the Forsyth County GOP, university officials acknowledged that the e-mail — sent from the student-affairs division — was improper.
The university cited a state law that prohibits the use of a state employee’s authority or state property to support or oppose a person or an issue in any election. link
Anyone who doesn't know that that's improper (and in this case, illegal) doesn't need to be working at a university. I'm just saying.
