Professor Bruce Fleming was the subject of an investigation apparently requested by two women, midshipmen upset about a poem Fleming taught after a sex scandal occurring at an off-campus party.

 

After the party, allegations of rape were made against some football players.

 

The poem in question is volatile. It is sensual. It may offend those who wince at the mention of things bawdy and raw.

(Snip: ALEC home page)assisted unofficially by some legacy media. Other efforts to degrade the First have been launched by his fellows like Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) and at least one Republican. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) reached across the murky aisle to help sponsor a bill that is indisputably unconstitutional.

Snip: Still shot from Fox coverage of presser
