Gingrich Visit to ND

Julia Douthwaite | Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Notre Dame policies and Notre Dame double standards never cease to amaze and appall those of us who work here: just two days after we faculty and staff received a letter reminding us of the policy that prohibits using university funds to sponsor partisan speakers to campus, Notre Dame received the Republican poster-boy Newt Gingrich, who was in town to “Stump for Walorski” according to today’s South Bend Tribune.

Great use of university subsidies, to pay for Newt’s trip to town. Great way to reveal the double standard operating on this campus and its non-partisan politics.
