OBAMA'S AMERICA: UNIVERSITY FIRES CHIEF DIVERSITY OFFICER FOR SIGNING PRO-TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE PETITION

The chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University was put on administrative Wednesday after the school learned she had signed a petition supporting efforts to reverse Maryland's same-sex marriage law, media reports say.


Dr. Angela McCaskill signed the petition at her church after her preacher spoke against gay marriage, the Planet DeafQueer blog reported on Monday, citing a Gallaudet faculty member who first spotted the administrator's name on the document. Voters in Maryland will decide on Nov. 6 whether to keep a state law passed earlier this year approving same-sex marriage.

Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio said in a statement:

"This is an outrageous and illegal action by a tax supported institution against Dr. McCaskill who has done nothing wrong but simply signed a petition as any American has a right to."
