Академическое -- A University of Tennesse bookstore was forced to pull boxes of mints from its shelves after a state legislator complained that it satirised President Obama.
Mr Armstrong told The Knoxville News Sentinel that UT uses federal and state funds and should be sensitive to what he called 'politically specific products'.
He said: 'If it was a private entity or corporation or store, that's different, but this is a state university. We certainly don't want in any way to put the university in a bad light by having those political (products), particularly aimed at defaming the president.'
