Public school teachers in hot water after bashing Obama on Facebook

Two public school teachers have found themselves in hot water at work after posting messages critical of President Barack Obama on their personal Facebook pages.

After last Tuesday’s election, according to ABC affiliate WSOC-TV, South Carolina-based eighth-grade math teacher Sharon Aceta updated her status on Facebook with this sarcastic message: “Congrats Obama.  As one of my students sang down the hallway, ‘We get to keep our food stamps’ …which I pay for because they can’t budget their money… and really, neither can you.”

A spokesperson for Rawlinson Road Middle School, Aceta’s employer, said that multiple people had contacted the school with complaints. (RELATED: Fourth-grade teacher says Obama’s re-election is America’s ‘funeral’)

“The teacher has admitted that poor judgment was used in this case, and she is very apologetic,” said the spokesperson, Elaine Baker, according to WSOC.

The school suspended Aceta for one day, on Friday. She reportedly spent that day apologizing for her actions. She also swiftly deleted the post from Facebook.

Aceta probably won’t face any additional disciplinary action, according to officials.

Meanwhile, in Ohio, a teacher at Linden McKinley High School posted an even more caustic message on her Facebook page, according to CBS affiliate WBNS-TV.

“Congrats to those dependent on government, homosexuals, potheads, JAY-Z fans, non Christians, non taxpayers, illegals, communists, Muslims, planned murder clinics, enemies of America, Satan You WON!”

The school, which received complaints about the post, has not yet issued an official reprimand of the teacher.
