DAAP Files J-Council Appeal, Election Results Delayed Yet Again
Update: DAAP's appeal has been rejected by the J-Council. But the council has agreed to re-hear DAAP's case this Saturday at 4pm.
This one ought to be very entertaining and full of awkward offensive moments. DAAP's appeal, among other things, charges Chair Mike Davis with assuming "supernatural powers." They also charge, several times, that since they are students of color they were wrongfully persecuted.
An entire slate of the most outspoken representatives of minority students has been thrown out of the student government election. The aim of the attack has been to limit the political power of minority students at Cal. (The disqualification has already had a substantial negative impact on the racial climate on campus as the attached internet chatroom discussion indicates.)Calstuff aficionados and fans will be happy to note that the attached internet chatroom is none other than the comments section from our post about DAAP's disqualification. Some of the comments they cite as evidence though are by people, such as Angry Clam, who are no longer on campus.
This will probably push back election results another week because DAAP is not allowing the results to be counted while they are still in appeal. Will anyone be around next week to hear the results?
