The AP has obtained e-mails showing that Mitch Daniels sought to censor academic materials while in office
The ex-Governor of Indiana and current President of Purdue University wanted Howard Zinn's A People's History removed from all course syllabi, criticizing it for being a "truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that misstates American history on every page." The Atlantic has all the e-mails up here
. Additionally, he audited and sought to cut funding to the programs of Charles Little
, who is reported to have been critical of Daniels in the past.
Meanwhile, Daniels is also facing public pressure
over the hiring of many of his former aides into positions at Purdue University.
