The Nov. 22 Gazette has an article on a federal law case regarding the University of Iowa Law School denying a job to a conservative person because of her politics (“Jurors say they saw bias in case”).
The lawsuit contended that the 50-member faculty had 46 registered Democrats and they blocked the appointment because they knew the applicant was a Republican who had worked for two pro-life groups. Her qualifications were much better than those of the alternate person that the law school hired.
This situation should be brought to the attention of the Board of Regents and the Iowa State House of Representatives and Senate. The State of Iowa is funding this law school to provide a balanced education for the students, not just an education based on liberalism.
