A Colorado-based taxpayer advocacy group is calling on Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia to investigate Adams State University over its abandoned plan to offer course credit to students who volunteered with the Obama campaign.
“We are very curious to know how [the plan] was vetted, and who made the decision to do something that appears unethical and questionable,” said Sean Paige, state deputy director of Americans for Prosperity, in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“It strikes me as baffling that an institution of higher ed that is supported by tax dollars would risk doing something that gives the appearance of partisanship,” Paige continued. “They should know better.”
TheDC News Foundation previously reported that ASU advertised an opportunity for students to receive course credit while volunteering with the Obama campaign.
ASU removed the ad from its website after it was noticed by conservative groups.
