UCF Student Government Presidential Election Scandal Made National News

Hearing the word “election” these days literally makes my skin crawl. Since I live adjacent to the state with the first-in-the-nation primary, I’ve been under a siege of political attack ads since the summer, and quite frankly, I’m totally over it… and we’ve still got 8 months to go.

But on Monday morning, the folks at “Fox and Friends” took a break from discussing the presidential race to talk about one that may be just as screwed up: the Student Government Association elections at the University of Central Florida. They interviewed former UCF SGA presidential candidate Jacob Milich, who claimed elections were a “partisan plot against him” since he is a conservative.

During the interview, Milich claims that during “closed hearings,” the student election commission kicked him off the ballot due to “several campaign violations” – misconducts that he admits to, but claims are infringements on his free speech.

While the election is actually already underway, Milich mentioned that he is trying to get the election delayed or rescheduled so the “student voices can be heard.”

Ugh, seriously? Honestly, I’m not sure if Milich is just a paranoid rule-breaker who is pissed he got caught or if there is some group of UCF liberals deliberately screwing with the guy. But either way, we have enough political turmoil going on in the real world that we don’t need it in a student election. Can’t we all just get along (in college, anyway)?
