Here was his reaction when I requested an interview for the upcoming ASUO elections issue. The “they” in question is the Commentator:
They supported the Pacifica Forum last year, so I can’t acknowledge them. They’re apologists for fascists … I will not partake in any interview with them.
There was a sentence where the ellipsis is, but my notebook didn’t catch it. Gillespie is running for ASUO president.
