Transcript Rutten wins YMection, Brownstein impeachment fails Jim Strong, new YR member shows his membership credentials just prior to taking part in controversial election, above. Center, Bobby Brownstein and counselor, Jerry Patchen, consult during trial. Right, Larry Hawke counts presidential ballots which include many write-ins. Laurye Rutten confers with associates during their balloting, far right. David Shehorn brings Brownstein case to the Senate, bottom right. In an era where dissension and discord are common, UH had its share of the many problems and controversies faced by most universities today. The first among many was a controversy involving impeachment procedings taken by the Student Senate against Robert Brownstein, election commission chairman. Filed by Senator David She- horn, the charges included illegally counting ballots and certifying ineligible candidates for office during the previous student government election. The senate appointed a committee to study the charges and after two weeks of deliberation the committee voted to clear Brownstein of any charges. As the SA elections approached, UH politicos began to delve into all levels of campus politics, including the Young Republican officer elections. In the YR presidential election, politicos divided their forces behind the two candidates, Laurye Rutten and Jay Bohner. Conflict arose when the YR executive committee ruled that Bohner had filed improperly and was therefore ineligible to run. This decision did not go uncontested and the Bohner supporters launched a write-in campaign. When the votes were tallied it was discovered that in count Bohner had won the election, but the committee retained its previous decision and Laurye was approved. 68 69
