Wisconsin Professor Caught Pushing Recall Petition in Class

UW-O officials release details of investigation of professor

An apology from the UW-Oshkosh professor caught on tape urging his students to sign a recall petition.

Professor Stephen Richards says he regrets using class time to inform students about recalling a state senator.

Recording: "I have two students here who are from the committee to recall Republican state senator Hopper. By signing this sheet, all it's saying is, that you'd like, you're signing it to have him recalled."
