Public University doesn't react negatively when university email sent out asking staff and students to vote for Democrats

This is one reason not to have people working for the government. The article from the Winston-Salem Journal is here:

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. . . .

Tabor said he’s upset that he had to call the university and complain.

“That is a tax-funded school,” Tabor said, calling the original e-mail “highly illegal and unethical.”

The university said it would try to discover who sent out the e-mail and whether it was sent intentionally or accidentally in a partisan form.

Early voting started last Thursday in Forsyth County and runs through Oct. 30. Election Day is Nov. 2. . . . .

More like: "The university said it would try to discover who sent out the e-mail and whether they would be forced to admit that it was sent intentionally or if the university could get away with pretending that it was sent accidentally in a partisan form."
