I give you a complete explanation of the boards failed attempt to oust president Teresa Sullivan this summer. It is none of your business and nobody cares what you think. Go home and study.

Ms. Dragas owes the University community her immediate resignation. She embarrassed us on the national stage with her ill-conceived buffoonery, and she is once again completely clueless if she believes these voices will be silenced.

Also, thanks for nothing, Bob McDonnell - you hack. Reappointing this dilettante tells us all that you care nothing for the University of Virginia. I hope your hair falls out.

Why should the students demand her resignation when she should have resigned herself? And as for BOOBY reappointing her--thank goodness he can't run for office again, but look at what might follow! Koochie Kenny!!!!!!
Dragon Woman...RESIGN!!!!!!!!

She most definitely should step down and the governor should not have allowed her to remain on the board. From what information has been provided in the media, my interpretation/perception is that one of the driving forces was the proposed donation by Mr. Jones pending the oust of President Sullivan. In my opinion, this is most unethical, and possibly illegal.(possibly extortion??)

I feel that board members should be elected by a panel of UVa professors, hospital administration, etc. rather than the governor. Otherwise, it should be ILLEGAL for the governor to elect someone to the board if that person has donated money to the governor's campaign.

I'd ask her to leave, too. She looks creepy and kind of shady.

Using the word "tard" as in retard is really despicable. Please don't use it. You can make your point without it.

I could, but I like it too much and can't stop, JL-tard. It has such a nice ring to it, think of the possibilities;

With all the controversy the BOV stirs up, warranted or unwarranted, they should just televise their meetings, at least until this all blows over or dragas disappears.

Maybe that's one reason why people don't vote Republican, Mr McDonnell!!
If a normal UVA employee acted like Dragas, they would have been fired immediately!!
