Well, there's my answer
I picked up the Daily Cal. They didn't go ballsy or lame, they went just plain false.
The headline is "Executive Order Reinstates Candidates." Now, if you mean "reinstates them as not-disqualified candidates," this would be quasi-accurate, but the first paragraph is:
With election results in limbo, ASUC politics took a dramatic turn this week when outgoing President Manny Buenrostro issued an executive order Tuesday reinstating four disqualified Student Action executive candidates into office.
They were "reinstated into office," apparently. They never were in office in the first place, but they were reinstated there.
Blah blah some stuff about Ben's suits...
Narodick, Buenrostro and Gabriel have 48 hours to file briefs stating the grounds for their arguments.
Well, they had 48 hours Tuesday night. Right now, they have 15.
But Buenrostro said the senate is not in session over the summer and executive action is necessary to ensure the council abides by the constitution.
Uh... I'm pretty sure ensuring constitution compliance is a judicial role.
Ben Narodick is quoted as saying "The stakes are so great because the stakes are so small." I'm pretty sure that's a rewording of a Henry Kissinger saying.
