Just ask Wisconsin professor, Bill Cronon. Professor Cronon had the nerve to write an op ed for the New York Times which he followed up with a blog post on the socialist sounding, "Scholar as Citizen" website. (I mean who does he think he is? A citizen?!)
Within 48 hours the Wisconsin GOP filed an open file request for all of Professor's Cronin's defined by:
"Copies of all emails into and out of Prof. William Cronon's state email account from January 1, 2011 to present which reference any of the following terms: Republican, Scott Walker, recall, collective bargaining, AFSCME, WEAC, rally, union, Alberta Darling, Randy Hopper, Dan Kapanke, Rob Cowles, Scott Fitzgerald, Sheila Harsdorf, Luther Olsen, Glenn Grothman, Mary Lazich, Jeff Fitzgerald, Marty Beil, or Mary Bell."Well that will teach a guy to you know...think and then, speak. Professor Cronin has issued a typically "thinky" response to this rather obvious attempt to shut him up and anyone else who might smack wise about the current administration.
