Semi-sweet victory

The J-council has spoken. All seven of the members in attendance agreed that Rebecca Simon overstepped her boundaries when she decided to censor the candidate statements of Dan, Dave, and Matt. However five goofballs decided, despite the lack of any rules to this effect in any set of ASUC bylaws or constitution, that candidate statements have to be politically relevant to be immune from censorship. Bullshit.

(Hey, Mike Davis actually got it right. He was one of the two who didn't spontaneously decide that speech had to address the ASUC in order to avoid censoring. Whee!)

Anyhow, more analysis from Matt Holohan. Look for his op-ed piece on the topic in the Daily Cal within the next few days.
