The Alligator Is Right
The Alligator reports that the Fall Election results at UF will be predictable, that the FBK-backed Gator Party will win handily, and that the insurgent Progress Party is not likely to do well.
I am only guessing, but I believe the Alligator is right on this. That any victories Progress gets will be limited to a few on-campus seats. Although this whole issue with the UFPD has potential to marshall non-traditional SG voters by motivating liberals to protest SG’s failure to represent one of its own against the unnecessarily brutal Tasering of obnoxious students.
After all, in Fall 2005, the controversy over some editorial cartoons helped heap more interest onto an SG election and thus helped the opposition party win seats in District D.
