Writing instructor erroneously refers to her “one republican friend”

Composition teacher republican friendANN ARBOR, Mich. – Kristen Goode, a University of Michigan Freshman Writing Instructor, frequently cites her “one Republican friend” in an effort to sound open-minded, sources close to her report.

The 29-year-old native of Bloomfield Hills and part-time writing teacher often refers to her “one Republican friend, [her] old college roommate Cassidy [Howes], who’s a surprisingly intelligent person.” However, sources indicate that the two women haven’t spoken in ten years. Evidence also shows that Howes, who is registered as an independent, actually refers to herself as a Libertarian, not as a Republican.
