Last Saturday, the Judiciary Council of the Association of Amherst Students released their decision on the election complaint concerning the elections held on April 5. The JC decided to nullify the results of the presidential and treasurer elections, while not punishing any of the elections’ candidates, and to run a new election for those two races. The JC also decided to release the results of the vice president, secretary and judiciary council chair positions.
During Monday’s Senate meeting, J.M. ’13 made allegations in which he accused G.T. ’14, Judiciary Council Chair, and R.B. ’12, AAS President, of attempting to make a backroom deal with Chris Friend ’14. He asked for the creation of a Committee of Inquiry that would recommend to the Judiciary Council whether to pursue impeachment of G.T. and R.B.
According to J.M., “R.B. and G.T., the JC Chair and candidate for Vice President, offered C.F. the position of interim treasurer in exchange for dropping out of the Vice Presidential race.”
