College fires Obama-pledge professor

Brevard Community College (BCC) has fired Professor Sharon Sweet after a school investigation concluded she required students to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the run-up to the 2012 election.
The school’s president  recommended to the Board of Trustees that professor Sweet should be fired, following an investigation that found her guilty of “harassment, incompetence, misconduct, and unprofessional behavior.” Sweet was a $40,000-a-year tenured professor who had taught at the college five years.
