Oh, ASUC President Noah Stern. That guy. What a dude. Even after straight-up lying about all of that sketchy shit he pulled during elections, he’s still getting sent on his presidential way, essentially unscathed. Oh, excuse us. He did have to issue this incredibly degrading and heartfelt (-ish) public apology:

beetleWhether or not you think ASUC president-elect Noah Stern deserves to be disqualified, there’s no denying that Sterngate is kind of a big deal. Why else would ASUC expert/blogger of many years Justin Azadivar (aka Beetle of Beetle Beat) break a nearly year-long silence to weigh in on the matter? Exactly!

And just what profound insight did this (allegedly former) ASUC nitpicker extraordinaire have to impart onto readers of the Daily Cal, today?

Many Steps Required to Determine Stern’s Fate [Daily Cal]

Looks like ASUC Attorney General Kevin Gibson finally found it in himself to bring much bureaucracy and paperwork down upon Noah Stern. The AG submitted three different charge sheets to the Judicial Council which include allegations of campaigning in the dorms, voter fraud and (horror of horrors!) spamming students during election season.

The J-Council will decide tonight whether to accept the charges—and if they are accepted, odds are they will reconvene later to decide what will happen to Noah.

UPDATE: The Judicial Council has accepted all three of the sheets. Thanks, GoBears!

One of these was probably involved. Note the dark background to emphasize the sketchiness of the whole ordeal.

Just a few hours after this Daily Cal story was published in Tuesday’s paper, we find this website. For those not in the loop, some ASUC hopeful may or may not have done some things that may or may not be against some rules or others. Fast forward a few days, the whole flippin’ campus finds out, and now you, the regular, average Joe reader, can presumably  keep checking back at the WordPress-hosted blog to get the latest on “Sterngate.” read more »
