Unsolicited e-mail causes special grievance hearing

People Incorporated is in trouble with the Elections Committee again.

A grievance was filed by Students First against the People Incorporated Party for sending out an unsolicited mass e-mail to the students of the College of Social Work.

The e-mail asked students to “get out there and vote PINC,” explained the party’s platform and contained a link the party’s Web site.

“It’s totally my fault. I didn’t know it was against the rules and take full responsibility,” said Holli Carter,

Assembly candidate and author of the e-mails. Carter contacted her opponents from the Students First Party to apologize.

In the grievance statement, the Student First Party stated, “If this e-mail did indeed go out to every student in the College of Social Work…it would reach exactly 495 students, giving People Incorporated a crucial advantage over the Students First party.”

A special grievance hearing is scheduled for tonight at 9 p.m. in the Union.
