Offers of legal and financial help are coming in for a woman who contends she was expelled from Grace University in Omaha because she is a lesbian.
Danielle Powell, 24, said Tuesday that she enrolled in the fundamentalist Christian university in 2007 but was expelled last year, a semester before her graduation, after school authorities learned that she had a relationship with a female student.
