Transcript Student Court Chief Justice Ron Gaswirth and Justice Gordie White hear evidence concerning election fraud and illegal campaigning. Contradicting Mary Jane Messmore's testimony, Pete Benevides explains that she told him she "did not get to vote." Politicoes Carry Charges, Counter Charges To Student Court... Directly following the election commission's decision against holding a new election, an appeal was filed with the Student Court by Ron Dear, representing Mike Driscoll, defeated presidential candidate. The appeal was against the election commission; Evans and his supporters were included as a third party since the outcome of the suit would affect them. A series of complaints had been lodged against Evans, president-elect, for illegal campaigning. These and numerous discrepancies in the tallying of votes were the basis of Driscoll's appeal for a new election. One of the main points in favor of the defense was the 24 hour rule in the election code. This kept much evidence secured by the plaintiff after Saturday morning from being admitted. There was a 12-vote discrepancy in the University Center Arbor booth; twelve more votes were tallied on the machine than there were signatures of qualified voters. The court ruled that this discrepancy was due to human error, to the confusion which surrounded the UC machine. Bill Taylor, chairman of the election commission, testified that Sonny Dotson, a former student, not registered this semester, may have voted illegally. Taylor's testimony was somewhat discredited, however, when the court discovered that, although he was an appointed election official with responsibilities, he had not only campaigned for Driscoll but had helped him prepare the case for the Student Court. Larry Edmundson was brought forward to testify that he voted at the Downtown School without an ID. When Evan's lawyer, John O'Quinn, questioned him, Edmundson said he did not know he was violating the election code, although he admitted being a member of the senate which passed the code. He said he could not remember when the rule had been brought to his attention. Driscoll accused Evans and his supporters of distributing material illegally in the dorms and parking lots. The rules Evans allegedly broke, however, were not in the election code or the student handbook. Mary Jane Mess- more then took the stand, for what started out as a major point for the plaintiff. She testified that she voted in the Architecture booth without signing the tally sheet because no one was manning the poll. However, Tom Laura, commissioner for the Architecture booth, signed a statement that the only time he left the 60
