Mercugliano-Lund ticket forced to drop candidacy for ‘highly unethical behavior’
Observer Staff Report | Thursday, February 13, 2020
The Mercugliano-Lund ticket must forfeit its candidacy after it was found to have engaged in “highly unethical behavior,” Judicial Council announced in a press release early Thursday.
The council’s Election Committee found junior Zachary Mercugliano and freshman Aviva Lund violated Section 17.1(i)(1) of the Student Body Constitution, which reads: “The promise of any office or position in the Student Union by any ticket or candidate shall be considered highly unethical behavior, the penalty for which may include a maximum penalty of forfeiture of candidacy.”
All votes cast for the ticket will be voided and not considered in the primary student body elections.
