How about walking this one back?

UC-Irvine seems to have gotten into a fix by quasi-suspending the college Republican club in the aftermath of a controversial event. Yes, there are technical issues about whether what happened is a real "suspension" or not. But it looks bad. When you get the Bernie Sanders folks supporting the Republicans, you know you have a problem: 

The UCI Anteaters for Bernie Sanders... posted their support on Facebook: “While we disagree with the College Republicans on a range of issues, (we) hereby firmly stand against this decision, and are vehemently against the administration for their over-reaching bureaucracy.”

So how about walking this one back and not arguing technicalities about what happened and what it means to suspend a group? How about just fixing it?
