Sigh. Rebecca Simon is currently planning to publish the ASUC Voters' Guide with the words "c*nt" and "f*uck" in lieu of the words originally submitted in David Duman's and Matt Holohan's respective profiles.
Matt Holohan has accordingly submitted an injunction with the Judicial Council citing the Election Couoncil's various violations of the ASUC Constitution and election by-laws.
We very honestly didn't want it to come to this. We didn't want to have to get the law involved. We genuinely don't want to be forced to make Rebecca Simon look irresponsible and foolish, especially given that the decisions she has made up to this point regarding speech in the Voters' Guide have been made without consulting Elections Chair Lesliann Cachola.
The irony of all of this is that the Squelch! Party members aren't planning on making obscenity and negativity a platform of our campaigns. Nor are we doing anything more questionable than we've done in previous years. If anything, this year we're tamed. Somehow the computer and financial crises of last year are going to be prevented this year by Rebecca and Angel selectively and arbitrarily censoring speech.
If you've yet to do so, please send Rebecca a friendly email regarding your opinions on the topic at Publicitycoordinator@asuc.org. Even if you're on her side. She might welcome the affirmation of her misplaced political correctness.
