Foes join forces in calling for ouster of allegedly racist college trustee

Political foes joined forces to fund the recall of a college trustee accused by former students of being racist.

IRVINE, California--Some 100 Republicans and Democrats attended a Saturday fund-raiser to back the recall of Steven J. Frogue from the South Orange County Community College District board.

Critics say Frogue, a history teacher at Foothill High School in Tustin, was insensitive for proposing a seminar on conspiracy theories that would have included a view about the Israeli government assassinating President John F. Kennedy.

Dozens of newspaper stories and affidavits from Frogue's former students quote him as claiming the Holocaust is exaggerated, denouncing the Anti-Defamation League and referring to Asians as "yellow people."

Frogue has denied the accusations.

Reps. Christopher Cox, R-Newport Beach, and Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach, said Frogue - a registered Republican - must go.

Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, said the recall spotlights the need for political parties to work together to make "Orange County a good place to live."

The event raised $ 40,000 that will be used to pay for signature collectors who will gather enough voters' names to qualify for a special recall election.
