UPDATE: After Being Removed from Office for Speech, Fresno City College Student Senator Reinstated
Remember in October when I told you about James Demaree, the Fresno City College (FCC) student senator who was removed from his elected position because he had the audacity to criticize his student senate colleagues on YouTube? Well, I'm happy to report that according to FCC student newspaper The Rampage, the publicity we generated paid off, and the Constitutional Appeals Committee unanimously voted to reinstate Mr. Demaree—I mean Senator Demaree—to his position last week. Hopefully the happy conclusion of this unfortunate episode has taught students at FCC about the importance of free speech.
