A handful of Boalt law students seek to recall ASUC Senator John Moghtader. You ask why–we ask why Boalties would care a sniff about the ASUC.

The students decided to take action against Moghtader after receiving the campus-wide e-mail from the Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion Gibor Basri, which asked students to preserve campus values. The petition claims that Moghtader’s behavior has been inconsistent with campus principles of free speech. The recall campaign also follows the fight during Israel Liberation Week.

In order to recall a senator, the petitioners must collect 1,000 signatures to hold a recall election. After that, the ASUC bylaws will need some interpretation. The Daily Cal article explains that

students represented by the senator would have to vote to recall him or her by a two-thirds majority.

And those students would be?
