Dr. Andrea Hatcher, an associate professor of political science at Sewanee: The University of the South, shared an unsettling tweet Tuesday, as noted by Twitchy:
Been contacted by @OFA to “recruit” students for them. Let me be clear : I don’t shill for any interest group or party.

Sewanee is a private liberal arts college in Sewanee, Tennessee and is owned by 28 southern dioceses of the Episcopal Church — its School of Theology is an official seminary of the church.
No doubt, this an independent-minded professor, but why is Organizing for Action, the successor to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign that advocates for the president’s agenda, recruiting students?
More than likely it is part of an extensive campaign by the White House to sell Obamacare to the American public. And as the Washington Post reported, the difference between success and failure is straightforward: They need to entice a sufficient number of young and healthy adults — about 2.7 million — into the new insurance marketplaces that open Oct. 1.
Nonetheless, Hatcher has peeked the curiosity of a few skeptics, as seen here:

@Prof_Hatcher I’d love to get some more details on what they asked of you, if you have a minute. firstname.lastname@example.org
