Oh, good, Congress is looking into UF

The House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties of the Committee on Oversight and Reform sent a letter to UF demanding information and threatening an investigation of the university's since-reversed refusal to allow professors to testify in cases adverse to the state. This is a waste that will achieve nothing but partisan grandstanding and partisan pushback. Plus, the letter was co-signed by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who, despite her last name, used the phrase "shouting fire in a crowded theatre" in Gosar censure debate and thus has forfeited any standing to advocate on First Amendment issues.
