ASUO Elections – Day 4

ASUO Elections Coordinator Will Price had no comment regarding the Elections Board decision against Ben and Katie, the slate led by Ben Eckstein and Katie Taylor. Commentator Editor-in-Chief Lyzi Diamond will have the full details of the board’s decision shortly.

At approximately 2:15 PM local time,  Lindy Mabuya, candidate for Senate Seat 3 (PFC) was spotted by a Commentator staffer walking along University Street towards the Student Recreation Center clearly displaying a Ben and Katie campaign t-shirt, in violation of the Elections Board’s ruling.

Stephen Murphy, independent candidate for President, was seen near the EMU amphitheater distributing flyers which said “Do you love black people? Stephen Murphy loves black people.”

Kevin Cronin, notable as petitioner in In Re ACFC Member Andrew Quinlan (27 C.C. 2010/2011), sent a mass email out to “undisclosed recipients” this morning urging them to vote for Ben and Katie candidates and in favor of all ballot measures.

Photos from the week’s insanity will be up in a little bit. Two and a half hours to go!

    My remark was flippant. It was designed to emphasize the “self importance” of the elections board.

    Frankly, if it were up to me, I’d just have Chuck Norris roundhouse kick everyone, then select his beard as ASUO President, with the fist behind that beard as Vice President.

    It did during the 2007 and 2008 elections, if I remember correctly.

  3. Miles Rost says:

    The first amendment does not apply during ASUO elections.

    Also, for flagrant violations like that, Ben and Katie should be tossed off the ballot. Then executed wholesale.

  4. bry says:

    Didn’t the first amendment kind of get in the way of any punitive power the elections board has?
