SC college student leader survives impeachment

Sep 14, 2011 8:14:00 AM - thestate.com
The College of Charleston's student body president has survived an impeachment vote that was called because of comments he made on Twitter.

The Student Government Association voted 15 to 14 on Tuesday to impeach Ross Kressel for his remarks. Impeachment requires a two-thirds vote. The vote came after a two-hour discussion.

While the association rejected impeachment, members did vote 25-4 in favor of a no-confidence resolution on Kressel's leadership.

Kressel used his private Twitter account to send messages which contained comments that were offensive to women, blacks, gays and his colleagues.

The 21-year-old from Marietta, Ga., says he's learned that he shouldn't post anything that would upset his mother.
