The GSSC Impeachment: It Might Have Counted!
Written by Bwog Staff
Hot off yesterday’s impeachment of an ESC member, Bwog just got off the phone with GSSC President Niko Cunningham, who may or may not have just been impeached.
According to Cunnigham, tonight’s proceedings went down something like this: Towards the end of the GSSC meeting, after Dean of General Students Mary McGee had already left, someone on council had suddenly made a motion to impeach Cunningham. This may seem like deja vu from last week’s motion to impeach Cunningham, but according to the embattled president, this week’s proceedings were unconstitutional and therefore they shouldn’t count.
Cunningham explained that as soon as the council began to vote on the impeachment and handed out slips of paper (with which to vote, exercise democracy, enjoy freedom, etc.), he got up and left the room. “I immediately got up and walked out,” Cunningham said. “[GSSC] needed 16 members to have quorum and those devils only had 15 when I walked out.”
Further quasi-evidence of the lack of quorum rests in the slips of democracy paper themselves, as Cunningham points out that there were only fifteen slips of paper. GSSC requires two-thirds of its members to be present and, as Cunningham is wont to point out, 15 members does not two-thirds make. “They’re idiots, otherwise they would have realized this.”
Cunningham also says that after he left the meeting, he knew that “only the devils remained”, meaning that the council members who voted affirmatively to impeach Cunningham last week were all present at tonight’s vote, while Cunningham supporters were nowhere to be found. (See Cunningham’s own handy Maps of Injustice™ below.) “They’re like ravenous dogs, every single one of them. There are just 12 people who won’t let this go.”
Bwog asked Cunningham what was going to happen now, to which he replied: “I am the student body president.” However, Brody Berg, GSSC VP of Communications, confirmed the impeachment in an email to Bwog, tersely stating “We confirm.”
