Washington Times, Florida Woman Sues Law School, Education Department Claiming Expulsion For Being a Trump Supporter:
A former Florida beauty queen sued a law school and the Department of Education for $25 million claiming the university expelled her because she supports President Trump.
Christina McLaughlin launched the 114-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. ...
“This complaint is to help protect other students who have had their voice silenced by liberal universities and colleges,” said Ms. McLaughlin, 24, who also is running as a GOP candidate for a House seat in South Florida. ...
In Ms. McLaughlin’s case, she said professors learned about her Republican affiliation from social media photographs after she attended a Trump victory party. She said instructors immediately began treating her differently — including not answering questions she would pose to them after class.
Ms. McLaughlin went on to graduate from another accredited law school in Florida but said her formal complaint filed two years ago about the treatment from FIU went unanswered by the Department of Education. She said she’s incurred tuition expenses, lost internships and suffered from attempts at delaying her legal career.
