Texas A&M professor John Fike stepped down from his post as faculty adviser for the A&M chapter of the Young Conservatives of Texas. The reason: he is ashamed of the way the group behaves.
Following the group's anti-Obama rally where students were invited to toss eggs at a picture of Barack Obama, and after the circulation of a flier that pictured four A&M professors who signed a petition of support for Bill Ayers, Fike said that he had finally had enough. He says that the YCT's actions have, once again, embarrassed the university.
The chairman for the YCT chapter said that the group had already planned to drop Fike because he was an Obama supporter.
