Adewumi and Ragland Campaigns Face Violations

It appears that the University Park Undergraduate Association presidential campaigns of both David Adewumi and Christian Ragland have been accused of violating the UPUA’s elections code. While both candidates are pleading not guilty, they will find out their fate at the board meeting later tonight.

If found guilty, Adewumi faces his second violation of the campaign and could incur a 10% decrease in campaign financing because of a student wearing an unstamped “Adewumi For President” flag. This would be in addition to his previous 4% decrease. Ragland, however, faces a possible 16% decrease in campaign funding, due to two incidents involving Ragland campaigners ripping down Adewumi posters.

We’ll have the full details later tonight after the hearings.
