Last night at the ASUO executive debate, Cassi and Lucas (dark blue shirts) left the debate because they felt that “there were no undecided voters here” and that it was a waste of time.
Looks like they made up for that political blunder by doing something even more ill-advised. Here’s an e-mail we’ve received. It’s original senders are Cassi and Lucas.
“Looks like we did a little mess up. We had this great idea to sit in coffee shops and let people come talk to us, so we made signs that said “Let’s talk” and went to find a place for a suitable discussion. We posted up in the EMU to wait for people to talk to us, Cassi got some lunch and we sat for a minute and looked around with our signs up. Three minutes later, we noticed a guy snapping a picture of us on his iPhone. We went to talk to him, and he said “you can’t campaign in the EMU.” Immediately our red flags went off and we took the signs down and went down to find a member of the Elections Board to talk to. We found President Kallaway and she advised us on how to deal with it.”
Just like Rousseau’s mistake with the printers, you have to know the rules before you do anything. If they left the debate to go strategize, don’t you think they could have avoided something like this?
By the way, if you’re “that guy with the iPhone” we’d love to see that picture.
