A former Florida beauty queen sued a law school and the Department of Education for $ million claiming the university expelled her because she supports President Trump.
Christina McLaughlin launched the -page legal complaint Thursday against Florida International University School of Law and the Department of Education. She never failed a class, yet she was dismissed for failing to meet academic standards, she said.
Officials also denied her request to have legal counsel present at a hearing where she contested her dismissal sans prior notice, according to the complaint.
The federal court filing details how one professor told Ms. McLaughlin she was “immoral” for supporting Trump, while another professor performed a skit in front of his classroom, wearing a Make America Great Again hat, pretending to be a Trump supporter by affecting a Southern accent and acting mentally ill.
“It was threatening — not that I felt I was going to be physically attacked — but threatening in that I saw the vitriol toward Trump supporters,” Ms. McLaughlin told The Washington Times.
