The purpose of Obama's 'Dear Colleague' letter is to make more college guys guilty of sexual assault

Andrew Morse, a director for policy and research at NASPA and consultant on higher education compliance issues, recently said this about Obama's 2011 "Dear Colleague" letter: "The lower threshold as articulated in guidance in 2011 by the Office for Civil Rights provides the foundation for a likely outcome of responsibility that will protect survivors of sexual violence . . . ."

Robby Soave translates: "It's not about finding the truth, or administering justice. The purpose of the guidance is to make it more likely that accused students are found responsible, whether or not they have done anything wrong. OCR has tipped the scales in favor of alleged victims, because the lives of the accused matter less than the lives of the accusers."

Of course. That's obvious. We've been saying it for years. And it's why the sexual grievance industry is so terribly alarmed that Betsy DeVos has contributed to FIRE.
