An Iowa State professor took to Facebook to issue a “memo” to current students:

“In Iowa, you may have the ‘right’ not to wear a mask or get vaccinated. As faculty, we have the ‘right’ to take your choices into account in a year’s time when you ask for a letter of recommendation.”

Wow. Talk about an abuse of power and coercion. People like Leslie should not be in a position of influence or power over young people if they are going to attempt to hold those same young people hostage based on their individual liberty and freedom.

It is shameful and the behavior does not belong anywhere near a college campus.
