N.C. A&T suspends adjunct running for city council
- North Carolina A&T adjunct Jamal Fox was suspended with pay Tuesday for violating the UNC system's political activity policy by running for city council.
- The policy requires employees to seek permission prior to running for office.
- Provost Joe B. Whitehead Jr. is also investigating a report that Fox awarded better grades in exchange for students' votes.
Fox is currently deciding what his next move will be, though his opponent, Jim Kee—an alumnus and former member of the board of visitors—is requesting that the university not fire him. Kee also happens to be the person accusing Fox of exchanging grades for votes.
