"F— Off Matt!"

Matt Kokkonen, recent Republican candidate for Congress, forwarded this to me. I think it speaks for himself. A music professor at UCSB, Paul Bambach, fired off an email through his UCSB account, and told Matt to fuck off.

Printed below is Matt’s response to the university, a response that I agree with 100%. You can’t use a corporate/business/institution email account to send personal opinion email. It was wrong of Bambach to do this. He should apologize to Matt and he should also be reprimanded by UCSB. This is not about free speech. this is about improper use of your employer email.

On October 28, 2008 I received the above email from music instructor Paul Bambach of UCSB. His message “F— off Matt!” came from UCSB. Does it express the position and imperative statement of University of California, UCSB or its College of Letters and Sciences or its Division of Humanities and Fine Arts regarding me or my Congressional campaign?

I was the Republican candidate for U.S .Congress for California’s 23rd Congressional District in the November 4, 2008 election. Being an immigrant from Finland, it was a privilege and a high honor for me to run to be a U.S. Congressional Representative for the Central Coast of California. I came to America because it was and still is the land of opportunity. I was fortunate enough to attend Westmont College in Santa Barbara for my undergraduate studies.

To be told to “F— off Matt” by a teacher and representative of a public university through its email system, in my opinion is a misuse of public property and services. I believe it is inappropriate.

Furthermore, in my opinion the imperative to “F— off Matt” issued through a public university email system is a sexually harassing command.
