Liberal activist Shun Griffin is facing impeachment as president of the Charleston School of Law’s Student Bar Association, emails obtained by FITSNews reveal. Griffin – who is facing stalking charges in Richland County, S.C. – has not directly addressed the allegations against him except to refer to them collectively as a “personal attack.”

Griffin was given a deadline of Sunday, February 10 to step down voluntarily or face articles of impeachment drafted by fellow student leader John Gentry.

“At this point, it should no longer be about your believed capacity to lead, but rather the school, the integrity of its reputation, and the good of the student body as a whole,” Gentry wrote to Griffin last week. “Should you choose to officially resign prior to Sunday, there will be no need for impeachment. For a lack of better words, the ball is still in your court.”

Griffin refused to step down, however, telling Gentry his impeachment resolution violated “due process.”

“It is your prerogative to advance impeachment without any violations of my oath of office, you should know doing so … will not be taken lightly by my administration, the student supreme court, or the school of law,” he wrote.

Griffin continued to avoid addressing the charges against him, though.

“I will not address the other baseless allegations raised in your email,” he wrote.

Griffin’s ongoing refusal to substantively address the charges against him is beginning to cost him support – as is the time he is having to spend away from the school to deal with them.

“Students realize and know that (Griffin) is not present on campus,” student leader Ryan Andrews wrote in an email signaling his support for the impeachment resolution, adding, “it is selfish for him to remain as our SBA President when he cannot handle his job responsibilities.”

Elected by CSOL students to a one-year term last March, Griffin has used his post to support all sorts of liberal causes – including a jihad against fast food chain Chick-fil-A over its owners’ stand against homosexuality.

CSOL has been a laughing stock in recent years, given its abysmal bar exam passage rates (and efforts by the S.C. Supreme Court to artificially inflate them). Obviously this latest drama isn’t helping …

“will not be taken lightly by my administration”

What fucking “administration”? You are a student leader of a fucking third rate law school, not a reincarnation of Idi Amin.

Had one for a while, a JD from USC isn’t worth the toilet paper it’s written on but the graduates think they’re equal with the likes of Yale or Harvard Law School graduates.

Not sure if it is true at the law school but many of these school student presidents are paid for their work. If I remember correctly the College of Chas kid make 10 grand a year.

Anybody know the facts on this stuff?

Who gives a damn about this story. The guy is a STUDENT president, not a “real” politician.

Hell, he’s not even a “real” STUDENT if he goes to CSOL.

Fits- just one more story that most people don’t care about. Also, I find it amusing that in every piece of work you do regarding CSOL, you have to say something about CSOL being a laughing stock, etc. Who exactly is laughing? Is it just you? If so, why? How did you do on the SC Bar Exam again?

From what I have noticed after graduating from CSOL, passing the Bar, and practicing law – no one is laughing. In fact, There are many of us (every member of my firm for example) that are trying and winning cases and are every bit as equal as lawyers from any other law school. I talk with lawyers from USC every day and not once has it seemed to be an issue where either of us went to law school. Law school is a stepping stone and nothing more. Once you take the next step, nobody cares about the previous one.

Get some new material and quit bashing CSOL. It is exhausting to watch.

This guy is a personal and professional disaster. The only thing he has is being negro. That may help him climb back out of the gutter. However, his actions and personal professionalism will certainly get him back there in short order.

He is a liberal Democrat and black. Toal will make sure his BAR exam is marked passed without any review of the document. He has friends in high political places and as we know, in South Carolina and espectially in the SC Judiciary, that is all that matters.

C’mon FITS.. You know I’m a loyal reader who just happens to be a CSOL grad.. Neither one of our state’s law schools are that great. It is what it is. But I’d darn sure rather spend three extra years in Charleston than in Columbia. I’m proud of my school. I even have an official school Tervis tumbler from the gift shop!
