Both The Chronicle at Duke and the Daily Tar Heel are reporting that Justin Robinette, a junior at Duke University and former chairman of the Duke College Republicans, was ousted last week from his position.

Members of the organization signed articles of impeachment stating Robinette was voted out because of a neglect of certain duties, attempts to fix elections and force members of the group out, along with other allegations. Robinette contends that some of the allegations refer to incidents in the past, prior to his recent re-election to the post of chairman in February and confirmation of that election in March. He and his supporters say he was pushed out after members of the group learned he is a homosexual.

News of the controversy already has spread this morning to national news outlets, including The Chronicle of Higher Education.
