Has the Daily Cal grown a spine? They called on folks to email President Oren Gabriel on his effort to steal money.
By the way, folks are trying to make sure that the Senate only discusses this in closed session. Supposedly,
The ASUC Constitution allows the senate to enter into closed session—but not to vote on agenda items—if the discussion includes "matters involving litigation."Not only is there no litigation going on, that isn't even correct. The relevant passage of the Constitution is:
The ASUC Senate, the Judicial Council, the Graduate Assembly, and subordinate units of these bodies may hold closed sessions only if two-thirds (2/3) of their entire membership approve. Such closed sessions may be held only for the discussion or consideration of the following:I want to hear how it would adversely affect the interests of the ASUC for us to hear them talk about it. That is, if you don't subscribe to the Student Action belief that "the interests of the ASUC" and "our personal interests" are the same.
1. Matters involving litigation, when discussing in open session concerning those matters would adversely affect the interests of the ASUC.
Anyway, Student Action has clammed up entirely. Responding to concerns of constituents? Nah, no need to DO it.
