GAINESVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

CBS46 is getting answers after the ACLU has been warning a Hall County-based college.

An English professor applying for a job received a shocking demand: Sign a loyalty oath that he's not a member of the Communist Party.

The professor signed the oath and then called the ACLU. He was offered the job but decided not to take it.

CBS46 reporter Mike Dunston went looking for answers from leaders of Lanier Technical College. He explains why the loyalty oath almost led to a legal fight.
