Georgia State Rep. Earl Ehrhart wants the head of Georgia Tech’s president on a platter unless he puts an end to the sham trials against students accused of sexual misconduct and racial harassment.

The man who controls the purse strings for public universities in the state made clear to Tech officials they wouldn’t get any more money without reform of the disciplinary process, leading Tech last month to abandon its $47 million request for a library expansion.
