Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak said Penn's remarks were an attack on Republican students.
"This is exactly why we are engaging students on college campuses across the state; young conservatives should not feel isolated or outcast simply because they are Republicans," Schostak said in a statement. "This is a public institution, funded by taxpayers, and this type of bullying is inexcusable."
Schostak called for Democratic support in seeking Penn's resignation.
"By bringing his personal views into the classroom, Penn has directly isolated and threatened young Republicans into silence," he said. "His use of political intimidation is shameful and should not be tolerated."
Tough talk coming from the South end of a horse facing North. I just cannot imagine where that weakest link happened. Oh, wait. Now, I remember...
And despite all the bragging of late about the $30+ million dollars raised by the State Party, our personally chosen candidates were hung out to dry.
In all fairness, Todd Courser did receive $265, and Dr. Michael Busuito got $168.45 from the MRP- on Nov. 15th. And lest we forget, State Board candidate Melonie Kurdys got $16.95 worth of food.
But that was it. For U of M's Dr. Rob Steele, MSU incumbent Trustee Melonie Foster, MSU candidate Jeff Sakwa, U of M candidate Dan Horning, and Wayne State's Satish Jasti? Nada, not a single penny of support from their Party. Great to be a Republican, eh?
