The Don’t Haze Me Bro scandal continues brewing, its embers bubbling up in the news.
First, The Print posts older documents from the Grapski civil trial, circa 1997-1998 that adds historical validity to the GDI rhetoric about the role of FBK and the past abuse of Greek houses (particularly pledge classes) in getting out the vote.
Secondly, UF announces that it won’t punish anyone involved in the scandal despite obvious violations of UF and state policies against voter coercion and conspiracy.
The funny part about this tidbit is that the University is quoted as if it seemed more concerned about the recording surfacing at all, and wondering whether it might need to punish those who even received the recording.
Yep, the University’s Administration is more interested in protecting its legacy by rebuilding a perfectly good student union than it is in hiring quality teachers to attract quality students, and is more interested in protecting the Greeks who were caught red-handed (including a drunk and angry Student Body President) than doing anything about blatant abuses of the symbolic power SG has.
It makes this alumnus glad he ignores their periodic fundraising appeals.
