I for one believe the Gator Party has run out of second chances. Between the tasteless mass-email to the Indian Student Association (which many attribute to it), the ambiguous mass-mailing to the Black Student Union, and the arrest of several of its members, including it's second-in-command, I believe it's time for Gator to sit this one out.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, the Vice President of Student Affairs must act in a way that sends a clear and decisive message to the Student Body. Student Government has been on a mission for many years to gain the respect and hopefully, eventually, the trust of the students. What kind of a message will the Madam Vice President send if her boss preaches drying out campus yet she turns a blind eye to underage alcohol consumption in a student political party - the party currently in control of Student Government?
Patricia Telles-Irvin should also avoid naivety in this matter. Was this a 'party of five?' or was this 'party of five' a party of a larger party? Redundant, huh? But it makes a huge difference in the scheme of things.
Patricia Telles-Irvin & the UF Administration, the same administration that forbade Independent Leader Sam Miorelli from registering the Swamp Party name, is now presented with a very serious situation. Will they remand this injustice to the (Gator Party - powered) [student] kangaroo courts - or - will they 'convene a committee...to meet in 2019...to evaluate the situation retroactively'.....OR will they practice due diligence and actually fuckin RULE against the GOD DAMN SYSTEM FOR A CHANGE?
