Subpoenas Issued, “Post” Makes Awful Pun

Written by

Relatively unreliable paper The New York Post is reporting that a grand jury has subpoenaed all Columbia’s records on Madonna Constantine, citing financial records and personnel records of particular importance.

The investigation into last year’s noose-hanging incident has yet to pinpoint any possible suspects, while the plagiarism investigation remains tightly under wraps, with both Constantine’s lawyer and the University’s PR firm declining to comment.

The Post also refers to sources who explain that the subpoena could signal “that the investigation is broadening to examine possible links between the teacher, her closest friends and the racially charged incident.”

  1. spelling nazi  

    spelling mistake: "Madonnna"

  2. I sincerely hope  

    she gets to serve some jail time.

  3. She'd

    probably hang a noose on her cell door and demand to be set free due to the inherent racism of our penal system.

  4. .......  

    what's going on outside by the gates?

  5. oh no  

    Madonna, I hope your credit card receipts don't have any rope purchases on em.

    i just dunno what to think...

  6. haha  

    I like that Bwog parroted that JuicyCampus story from Gothamist and the Post the without fact-checking first but, when it turned out to be false, proceeded to knock both sources for not fact-checking. Nice.

  7. what the fuck  

    is this? the antebellum south? can we relax with the vitriol..... or do ppl really think such attacks would be the same if she hadn't previously been the subject of racism-exposing attacks....

  8. The Kerouac  

    I saw her face in the soil and I knew it was the same soil they tilled two hundred years ago with bloody hands digging in the dirt as they breathed the hot, wet Savannah air and thought of freedom and you don't just forget that over night, no sir, and you don't leave that behind even two hundred years later and at night when you see the bright, bright stars you don't think those are the same stars they looked at south of the Potomac when they waited for that sweet chariot to swing low?

    "pygmy" refers to a group of people and using it as a denigrating tag presumes some group-wide deffiency of those people. Thus you are racist. QED.

  10. if you're interested  

    here's a comparison between Constantine's work and one of her students:
