Today we saw our share of CCSC election controversy, but the E-board race has not been stirred too much.

Because of this email, it looks like Alidad Damooei has filed a complaint against the Krebs camp for illegal campaigning before Spring Break. No comments from anyone right now, we’ll see soon what the Judicial Board does. If Krebs and Ahmed are found guilty, this first violation would most likely result in 10% reduction in […]
