A prominent member of the Orange & Blue Party has officially lashed out at Sen. Eric Wolf over his Q&A. The outspoken member had this to say:
"His defection was one of the last things I was made aware of before I moved on. What he says in his interview is false.
Eric Wolf didn't switch party affiliations until he ran for, and lost, the election for O&B party leader.
The circumstances of his defection were anything but heroic or noble. He didn't even tell the party leadership he was leaving. Cain and Huey sat for hours at the judiciary committee meeting right beside Eric -- a full day after he told Dale he was leaving O&B -- and he didn't even extend the courtesy of letting them know. Both had spent days working to get him elected.
He hid behind Kellie Dale. He asked her to tell O&B for him. When she did she didn't even tell O&B which senator had left the reservation.
It was surreal.
This email remains off the record but if you do a follow up interview with him, please do ask him when he lost his balls and if he ever plans to grow new ones."
WOlf has been hailed by several as a prospective candidate for Student Body President; more progressive-minded members of the Greek community of the historical line that have voted John Boyles and years past for Chris Carmody, could see themselves voting for Wolf as opposed to the incompetence of a Jordan Johnson and the unpopular Kellie Dale; meanwhile more pragmatic members of the Independent community, whose historical line goes back to supporting more middle of the road candidates like Mackenzie Moritz and Chris Chase (Veep Candidate) would prefer a more boring candidate with a greater vote-garnering potential.
However, with GDI's (as opposed to Independents), Wolf would never out muscle the likes of Sam Miorelli, Ben Cavatero, or even Frank Bracco who's arguably moved slightly away from the GDI base towards the mainstream spectrum of the independent movement.
