Ousted Metropolitan State College student body president Felicia Woodson continues to draw a salary, says the Auraria campus chapter of College Republicans, which plans to file a complaint today.

The group says it will ask the Metro State Student Court to remove Woodson from the payroll. She was removed from office Oct. 27 by the school's Student Government Assembly executive committee but continues to receive $500 month, said Jared Malament, the Republican group's spokesman.

Woodson could not be reached for comment Monday.

Woodson was removed after she made comments opposing the Academic Bill of Rights at a news conference before a Sept. 30 speech by conservative activist David Horowitz. His proposal attempts to ensure conservative views are equally represented on campuses.

Woodson identified herself as student body president, even though student assembly members said she was not speaking for them.
