The news reports don’t characterize Rob Ranco’s politics, but just judging from his Twitter comment that Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos should be sexually assaulted, it’s pretty clear he’s an anti-Trump liberal if not a leftist.
Ranco got the boot from his Austin law firm Saturday and Austin Community College, where he teaches, is considering kicking him out as well. You’d think a lawyer would be more concerned with due process, which DeVos was upholding when she canceled Obama’s Title IX policy that forced colleges and universities to hold kangaroo courts over accusations of sexual assault. But apparently not.
UPDATE: He has resigned from his Austin Community College gig, whether forced by the college is unclear. He also issued a formal apology to DeVos—which is the old say-what-you-want-then-apologize-routine.
