Illegal Activity

It's illegal in California to use public funds or one's public position to take sides in an election.

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is suing several California university teachers (and universities) for doing so on one of our propositions. They used school e-mail accounts and mailing lists to advocate votes, and/or told their students how they ought to vote, or gave assignments to write supportive essays.

This teacher has violated that law (assuming it is the same there) by advocating votes for Obama/Romney.

What do you think?
