Ol Dirty: “Gulley Deserves Censure”

The Emerald is running an editorial today, calling for Senator Nate Gulley to face “stern censure by an impartial jury of his peers” for obviously violating conflict of interest in a Senate vote. Mentioning the Commentator grievance as “a convincing case that Gulley violated the ASUO Constitution, Robert’s Rules of Order and the Senate Rules,” the editorial concluded that Gulley did not deserve to lose his seat, but that he should face Senate censure.

I agree. We’d all be a lot better off if he weren’t in his seat, but it’s probably not worth the trouble. I just want to see him have to explain himself, and hopefully someone will try to defend him. Bring on the censure, I’ll be there with my popcorn!

    cough bullshit ahem, excuse me…! Elections might just have me coming down with something… anyway kicking off senate…maybe a little harsh but the jury is still out, I wonder what con court will have to say about the grievance… when do you expect to hear back?

    Hey, election season is a crazy time. Anything can happen.

    I have to agree, this is the kind of thing about which it is more than reasonable to call for blood (metaphorical blood, that is).

  5. Doomscheissah says:

    With his lack of decorum at Senate meetings, I think he does need to be tossed from his seat.
