COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON FACULTY UNANIMOUSLY REBUKE HIS SELECTION AS PRESIDENT

S.C. lieutenant governor Glenn McConnell was unanimously rebuked by faculty leaders at the College of Charleston, S.C. this week – with the school’s Faculty Senate issuing a stinging “no confidence” vote in its board of trustees over their selection of the Lowcountry politician as the school’s next president.

The vote comes on the heels of a student government tally that also went overwhelmingly against McConnell’s selection.

Meanwhile, there’s a huge front page spread in this week’s editions of The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier highlighting the dissatisfaction of the school’s donors – including the chairman of the school’s foundation, who resigned in protest over McConnell’s hiring.

Oh … and as we exclusively reported a few days ago, the national outrage over McConnell’s selection is just beginning to warm up.

Add it all up and McConnell has some serious problems on his hands … and for that matter so do the trustees who tapped him to this six-figure, taxpayer-funded post.
