Bracco, Wooten Feud Heats Up


Orange & Blue Leader Frank Bracco has been fingered by top Progress Lt. Justin Wooten in a scandal rocking the Independent movement. Wooten claims he has first hand knowledge that the former O&B Vice Presidential candidate has been telling fellow party-members that Wooten is an FBI Agent, allegations that, if true, will put a major damper on hopes of a key-Summer-pactbetween the two warring Indie factions.

"We need a united front for [Fall]," expresses a key indie leader on the ground at UF. Wooten, who is widely rumored heir-apparent to the Progress-presidency, a post currently held by Joshua Simmons, is the #1 go-to person O&B should be looking to win over.


Bracco, on the other hand, is a senior member of the independent movement, having made his bones with the heroic Pants Party of Bruce Haupt and following that up with a successful tenure at the helm of a key SG Agency, not to mention consisten ground & organizational work several indie parties.

Many people have had their fingers crossed since the results were announced - hoping for unity and reconciliation. On the other hand, many hardliners (from both parties, I'm afraid to say) still have some fight left in 'em. It could be Bracco/Wooten or it could be Heinz or Hunts Ketchup, but some hardliners seem poised to carry on the tensions - even though the elections are a thing of the past.

Question is...will this feud provide a forum for the upcoming battles? You Decide!

"What Do The Insiders Say?"


"It's utter nonsense. SDS people made it up and Bracco just parroted it. If Wooten has beef he should take it to SDS.


Chairman Joe Trimboli
Orange & Blue Party



"I think it's a bit overblown, although Bracco has been extremely obnoxious as of late and Wooten's not one to tolerate a lot of rowdy and unwarranted behavior.

Like, Bracco was yelling and screaming about this poster we made and put up at our table in turlington w/ our exec and lil wayne+obama and he was really trying to raise hell, saying we were misrepresenting ourselves and falsely implying that these two figures endorsed us.

And Wooten flat out told him to shut the fuck up, or something in that ballpark which may have sparked the fbi comment as backlash.

But like, even after o&b pulled their complaints against progress (a ridiculously shallow gesture), Frank still filed a couple against us for the lil wayne poster."

Sen. Dave Schneider
Rumored Progress Party 2010 SBP Candidate



"I think Wooten isn't a student at UF and seriously question how much free time he has on his hands that he's so "involved" in SG politics."

Sam Miorelli
Fmr.O&B Party President


"Wooten wins in the 5th round by TKO. Sam is trying to be relevant. Wooten is a really good guy, committed to the party and the cause."


Sen. Benjamin Dictor (Progress)
2nd Place Finisher, UF-SG Fmr. SBP Candidate

Haha, this is hilarious Christian. First, I get to have the most enjoyable election season ever by running the Keg Party, then the Keg Party gets away with handing out I voted stickers, and now I get to read perhaps the most hilarious article you have put up yet. My goodness, this has been the best three weeks in quite a long time! There is only one thing that would make it better: Christian and I doing our recording thing :-).

Christian Duque said...

I'd love to do the recording you know that. What about this scandal? Did you in fact call Wooten an FBI agent?

The suspense is killing me.

francisco said...

Haha, yeah I repeated it to Gary (and maybe Sam, I cannot remember) after hearing it several times from SDS people. I think it is funny that this is even an issue. I will, yet again, quote Josh Simmons/virgil by saying, "Me thinks the gentleman protests too much."

The fact that this is news would be comparable to me getting bruse on my knee and that being news in the Alligator...haha, maybe I should try to submit that story tomorrow :lol:

Christian, reply to my facebook message or write on my wall and let me know when you want to talk about doing the recording.

Wooten isnt a UF STUDENT!!!

Wooten is a joke I heard he was an fbi agent from John Story at an sds meeting

Wooten has done more for SG that Wacko Bracco can ever dream of.

Anonymous said...

does anyone truly care that Wooten is an FBI agent? why is this front page news?

Anonymous said...

Frank is crazy but he isn't a liar, Wooten needs to stop listening to his idiot party members.

Anonymous said...

Actually Wooten has done 0 for SG, literally. At least Bracco was actually in SG.

Anonymous said...

Lets say Bracco actually did come up with this (though I heard it far before he ever said it from people actually involved in the leftist community), who cares? Seriously, does it really matter? Get over yourselves.

Wooten takes himself too seriously. We called him an FBI agent behind his back because he never smiled. It was a joke about Dictor's paranoid view that the FBI was always trying to infiltrate our meetings. Our SDS group isn't that important.

I think Frank heard it from one of us.

Justin Wooten said...

Frank Bracco is an attention whore that likes to cause trouble. No wonder Gator/Unite refused to make him Image Chairman.

Again, Bracco is a liar. I finished moving in with Joe Richard Sunday. He saw Bracco's comments and told me he never said anything like that, not even in a joking manner. Why would Joe Richard ask an FBI agent to move in with him?

Which one of the following is true:

A) Frank will be Student Body President
B) Wooten is an idiot
C) Duque is sane

Wooten is an idiot, I heard he was an FBI agent on day on the plaza back in the Fall.

Thanks for the laughs Christian... I love seeing what's actually going on in indie politics and then going on the Radikal and seeing what Lansing Michigan thinks is going on in indie politics.

Frank you are an idiot, clearly the voters agreed with that last year. Why don't you get on with your pathetic lonely life already.

Anonymous said...

Wooten is a moron, this is just stupid. This rumor started long before Frank even met this FBI agent and will continue long after Frank leaves.

Anonymous said...

Wooten just keeps on screaming about something or another. I heard Joe Richard call Wooten an FBI agent the other day.

Why is this even important?

Reform party does as well as Orange and Blue party in election.... Incredible!!!!

Why is Wooten protesting so much, is he actually an FBI agent? Is this a Valerie Plame situation? Is he un-American and ashamed to be associated with our government? Or does he simply affraid to attempt his friends made him the butt of a joke?

Anonymous said...

I imagine Frank is loving being hated by Wooten just as much as Sam loves being hated by every Gator Party Senator.

Anonymous said...

If I knew this would be this big, I would have told Frank, Sam, Joe, and the rest of those old farts months ago that Wooten was an FBI agent.

The rumor was that the FBI sent Wooten to UF to investigate the green means go email scandal with its potential Mossad connection.

Toto is really Wooten's shoddy wire. No wonder people have sighted him talking into his left shoulder at bus stops throughout campus.

Where is Armando Ramon Grundy Gomes in all of this?

Anon 12:32 AM: The same place everyone else is, thinking this story is just plain stupid! Frank likely heard it from some SDS douche and repeated it while Wooten is just being the normal idiot that he is.

Anonymous said...

I bet it was Toto that told Wooten it was Frank that started the rumor.

Dave, I think you missed that Bracco started joking yelling about the poster after Wooten cursed him out for filing a complaint against Orange and Blue about the two banners.

Wooten is a jerk, I hope the FBI recalls him

It is easy to see why the SDS crowd would call Wooten an FBI agent.

All hail Wooten, his friends are Judas and have betrayed him by calling him FBI agent

Will Armando Ramon Grundy Gomes succeed Jordan Johnson as UF Student Body President?

No one can deny Armando is celebrated in all three major parties. He's known as mancandy on Sorority Row.

Even as a Gator Party Senator I heard Wooten was an FBI agent last semester from some hippie on the plaza.

travis said...

The FBI "rumor" is a JOKE. It makes fun of certain aspects of Wooten's personality as well as certain aspects of the SDS culture, which once had me pegged as "the informant" before I "proved myself."

The fact that a joke turned into a serious rumor that turned into a serious blog post tells me that some people need to spend more of their time pursuing their more worthwhile interests, like bodybuilding.

Brandon White was definitely an opportunist. Am I the only one who is happy he lost? I mean, he even updates his Facebook page saying how he did not really "lose" in this election. If that is not narcissitic, I don't know what is. No one can criticize him for his aspiration, but he must remember that several individuals (void of race or fraternity/sorority) fought so he could advance as quickly as he did in student senate. For future reference, he should remember not to screw over the people who helped him out, and alwways remember to lead a helping hand to the younger students (without seeking something in return). Former student leaders should have really talked to him (a la Will Atkins or Paul Drayton). I am ecstatic that Miorelli will also be gone. His cynicism and inability to work in a bi-partisan fashion to promote change does not go unnoticed. No one has ever overthrown a system without working within it (even in the French Revolution, there were members of the aristocracy who assisted the working class). What will become of the following people: Kevin Reilly, Brandon "I didn't really lose" White, Sam Miorelli, Armando Grundy?

In May 2003, DeVry Inc. acquired Ross University. Ross University is one of the largest medical and veterinary schools in the world. Focused exclusively on professional medical and veterinary education, the university awards both doctor of medicine (M.D.) and doctor of veterinary medicine (D.V.M.) degrees.

This is made all the more entertaining by the fact that Bracco is graduating and Wooten isn't a student.
