Hey so it turns out that despite the record-breaking turnout for Giant Joint in this election (just 4 shy of 420 votes), and what appears to be a first-time, much-deserved victory for our old friend and perennial write-in, we might have a Birther scandal on our hands. Has anyone actually seen hir certificate of enrollment? Conspiracy!
Sadly, according to WSA officials, Giant Joint may not take hir rightful place on the WSA next semester as one of the seven Members-At Large unless ze is actually an enrolled student here.
Which would create a dilemma for the WSA if someone named Giant Joint actually showed up next semester. If any of the 416 Wesleyan Green Party voters are truly committed to the cause, you will legally change your name to Giant Joint over winter break.
Yes, GJ’s historic victory may effectively serve as a fuck-you to the student government. But if you can’t bring the establishment down from the outside, why not fuck shit up from the inside? Looking at you, human avatar of GJ’s spirit.
Also check out the full election results to see some of the more ridiculous write-ins – from many ridiculous misspellings of “giant joint”, to “giant spliff”, to “Mytheos Holt”, to “lady gaga”, it was a good semester for democracy.
