Transcript Hruska wins lengtrfy S A presidential battle /he 1992 Student Association elections was a hotbed of controversy. Normally, it was difficult to really interest students in SA election campaigns, but several of the presidential contenders had raised allegations that the elections may have been slanted in favor of one candidate, Rusty Hruska, and that complaints lected nearly a month before Hruska filed to become a candidate from the YES party, other candidates such as Damien Kauta (PRIDE) and Andrew Monzon (Student Advocacy) agreed that this was a conflict of interest. "I feel like PLAID, PRIDE, and Student Advocacy are being shut out of the race other controversy arose, that people sympathetic to PRIDE were stuffing the ballot boxes. Election Commissioner Murry refused to certify some identical ballots found in a stack that helped swayed the vote in favor of Kauta, and turned the election over to the University Hearing Board. During the filed against him were being ignored. One of the concerns was that the Election Commissioner, Stefan Murry, was a fraternity brother of Hruska. Even though Murry was se- before it's even really started," said Monzon. "There is a conflict of interest here," said Kauta. Some thought it was rather ironic that Kauta made that remark when an- subsequent investigation, it was found that Kauta not only asked people he knew were sympathetic to him to man the ballot boxes, he asked them to stuff them with votes for PRIDE. "It seems pride is something that Damien Kauta has none of," said UH freshman Lisa Ashmore. In his defense, Kauta claimed that the allegations were racially motivated because he was an Asian-Indian and most of his party members and staff were of Indian, Pakistani, or Filipino descent. He also claimed that Murry and Hruska were conspiring to snatch the election victory from him, saying Hruska is full of "sour grapes." " I think Damien Kauta must be crazy if he thinks we're going to buy his racial crap. He's the only one trying to make this into a racial dispute. Even his own campaign manager testified against him. I think he's grasping at straws," said sophomore Chloe Graham. Eventually the board concluded that Kauta had cheated both in the general and run-off elections, and disqualified him. They then ordered a new election between the remaining candidates: Monzon, Hruska, and Eric DeBeer. Hruska won. "Being a political science major, I take intrest in elections. However, this year's SA elections have made me feel ashamed not only of the system, but that something like this fiasco could happen at UH," said Kamal Ahmed. -Angela Snyder SA Elections 305
