“To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better,” he wrote on his now-deleted Twitter account back in February.

This week, the Fresno Bee reported that Maischak “agreed upon a voluntary leave of absence.” Maischak will be gone for the rest of the spring semester.

Fresno State President Joseph Castro explained the terms of his leave: “The agreement for the paid leave was reached in accordance with provisions in the collective bargaining agreement with the California Faculty Association, the union that represents all faculty. During his leave of absence, Dr. Maischak will no longer have a teaching role, but will be conducting research off campus.”

Maischak has since apologized for his words.

A substitute has taken over his classes for the remainder of the semester, and his case is currently under review.
