Let the games begin: OSPIRG, Rousseau to see grievances filed

Tony Mecum just e-mailed us and informed us that he will be filing against OSPIRG and Amelie Rousseau, respectively. For OSPIRG, the grievance centers around the fact that there was pro-OSPIRG messages written on chalkboards all over campus (see above).

For Rousseau, it centers around her misuse of ASUO office space to print campaign materials.

For OSPIRG, Mecum’s suggested punishment is that they not be able to campaign on campus for 24 hours. For Rousseau, Mecum suggests removing her from the ballot entirely. This would seem egregious except for the fact that a pink “no campainging” sign has been on the ASUO office for months–that’s the place Rousseau works by the way–and her “accidental” breaking of the rules seems rather blatant.

I saw one of those messages on the chalkboard in Lillis 282 today. I did the honorable thing, and changed it say say “Vote NO on OSPIRG.”

After all, fair’s fair.

    I am proud to say I also have changed several Vote Yes on OSPIRG! Student Power chalk signs to: VOTE NO ON OSPIRG!
    And relish every moment to OSPIRG supporters ask me to sign onto supporting them and I get to “grind OSPIRG into the ground and [laugh] at them with impugnity” to their face…

    We don’t care about spellchecking. We just care about grinding OSPIRG into the ground and laughing at them with impugnity.

    I’m sory that bothers you Student. I’ll git write on that becuase spelling is way more importent than the contint and one or two liddle spelling mistakes will compleetly ruin any chance of understanding a blog post. haha

  4. Student says:

    Do you guys ever spell check yourself?

  5. NOsprig says:

    I had the same issue. Several people immediately wrote vote no in the remaining space.

  6. C.T. Behemoth says:

    There was one on my chalkboard yesterday morning. They must have run around pretty early. My first class was at 9:00am, and it was up long before students got there.

    I just erased it. My students asked me what I thought, but I told them that I don’t do politics in class and the chalkboard is an extension of me in class, so it had to be erased.
