Each year Lake Forest College hosts a spring concert. The spring concert is paid for with student tuition money. This year student’s tuition money is being used to pay for convicted sex-offender Uncle Kracker to perform on campus. "Police arrested the singer, whose real name is Matthew Shafer, on Aug. 17 at the Embassy Suites in Cary after a 26-year-old woman accused him of committing a sex act against her at the Ess Lounge at 326 W. Davie St. in Raleigh. He was charged with felony second-degree forcible sex offense" (source WRAL) "Wake County Assistant District Attorney Adam Moyers said Shafer, 33, who was in town for a performance at a downtown depot party, stumbled down some steps, put his hand under the woman's skirt and touched her "buttocks and vaginal area. She turned around, Mr. Shafer was standing behind her, they exchanged some words, and she slapped him, at which point, he slapped her back," Moyers said." This is not acceptable. While we fully support having a spring concert, we do not tolerate funds being used to pay for a convicted sex offender. It is our hope that the administration will recognize that the decision of who performs for the concert should be given a proper background check, and they should be responsible to report knowledge of such crimes to the student body. Our hope is not to attack any people responsible for preparing the concert but instead to demonstrate the severity of sexual assault. Because 1 in 3 woman will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime we cannot ignore such crimes. Please join us in telling the study body: we do not tolerate sexual assault, and we will not let our tuition pay a sex offender!
