Who was it that said Chomp The Vote was under new [serious] leadership? I mean I used to get all worked up by the ineptness of some mainstream party appointees, but after a year in office and almost two years observing from afar, I can honestly say that many well-connected bureaucrats could easily fuck up a cup of coffee.
When will people learn... with an SG PR Committee ready to work and an overzealous Gator Machine, overzealous in flapping their gums to naive constituents expecting more out of CTV, we see a cheap b&w flier, poorly formatted, & with a lede that warranted a Radikal-reader to take a photo and send it in. I don't know which is more pathetic, John Boyles' ineffective, lameduck administration or Ryan Moseley's incoming crew of dimwits & flunkies.
Let's set the record straight. I have always liked JCB and have been very grateful for his many contributions to the blog, however, I feel that the end result of his complaint seriously weakened the democratic tradition in SG at UF. I attribute this to an incompetent Supreme Court, a politically-charged Elections Committee that castigated PANTS on what's clearly been an established double standard, and last but not least, I attribute a great disservice to the Student Body by way of an inept administration. I find it most troubling (despite my liking of Fmr. Sen. Brett) that after soundly defeating PANTS at the polls, that the Gator Party would go play the role of desperate party and file motions and cases in the hopes of taking every seat (even if this means robbing the student body out of their lone Indie pic). This past action by way of Gator was most shameful, perhaps topping the treachery of it's high Indie Turncoat population.
From An Email:
"However, even if Cupoli agreed, we'd have the same problem that the online voting initiative faced when this same SC held a meeting in violate of Sunshine laws (the infamous no-notice meeting)-- Dean Gene found there that even though the SC violated law, what was done is done and the deadline for recourse had passed. By the time you read this, the EC will have validated the results, and the senate certified them. It's law now. Unless PTI [Patricia Telles-Irvin] (Machen's delegate to sign off on all SG law) refuses to sign off. Unfortunately though, I don't think she gives two shits about defending Pants or the principle of a free and fair democracy."
