  • Hmm…

    You might want to correct Abby Bergman’s affiliation: On the site she says she’s the Vice President of College Dems.

    I’m no Poli-Sci major, but I’m pretty sure that’s not the same thing as College Republicans.

  • Hmmm..doh!

    Disregard the last comment. I just realized that those were endorsements, not affiliations.

  • GDubBro

    We need a PIKE for SA President, and we needed it yesterday.

  • Really?

    Anyone else a little suspicious as to how Bennett got the endorsement of the org Iloulian runs? Anyone else think that there is something corrupt about the Finance Chair, who controls the money necessary to run a student org, is racking up these endorsements?

  • Student Org Officer

    Yeah. All of us who endorsed him received suitcases of SA money to give Bennett our endorsement. I think it amounted to about $50,000 each.
