Grievance Watch

Grievances be flyin’.

In addition to the grievance from Sen. Ian Fielding that Rockne mentioned below, there have been five grievances filed by the Students United (purple shirts) campaign thus far: four against Ben and Katie (red shirts) and one against Curtis Haley and Nick Warren.

The one against Curtis and Nick is for their name — Students Untied — for its closeness to the name Students United. The Students United campaign claim the similarity in name was intentional, given that Haley and Warren filed for election 13 days after Sinjin Carey and Kaitlyn Lange.

Then, there are four against Ben and Katie:

  • One for launching their website before the first day of spring term;
  • one for announcing their candidacy at an Alpha Phi Omega meeting on February 24, 2011, as well as soliciting on a listserv;
  • one for stuffing fliers inside copies of the Monday, March 28 issue of the Oregon Daily Emerald;
  • and one buying prior to the election and redirecting the traffic to

That last one is actually kind of hilarious. But I digress.

From what I understand, there has been limited contact between Elections Coordinator Will Price and the Students United campaign. I will post up the text of the grievances as an update to this post later today.

    So curtis what are your plans then? If it’s to be humorous, you should really learn the difference between people laughing with you, and people who are laughing at you. If your plans are to get some attention to yourself, trust me you are such a well known shit that you don’t need this for people to know who you are.

    Haha, the Illuminati on the Commentator’s comments have done it again. Congratulations on locking down that .edu domain name, that’s going to be a huge asset when it comes to search engine optimization.

    I, for one, am going to be devastated when yet another nefarious plan to take over the ASUO by not running a serious campaign goes astray. You rotten anonymous commentators and that giant beer mug are always foiling my plans.

  6. Lyzi Diamond says:

    What do you mean? I think this shit is hilarious.

  7. Curtis says:

    Hey, look, that’s me!

    This is the first I heard that a grievance was filed against us. I would love to read what part of the campaign rules we have broken.

    In any case, the Elections Board asked us to change the name and we did. The point was to be humorous, not to trick anyone, and adding !?!?! to the end fulfilled the same end.

    Also, isn’t the Commentator duty-bound to decry the silliness of grievances or am I misremembering my campaign history?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
