UA Student Elections: Giffords Hero Intern Daniel Hernandez and His Opponent Both Disqualified

Posted By on Thu, Mar 24, 2011 at 10:30 AM

The Arizona Daily Wildcat reports this bit of odd news about the ASUA presidential ambitions of Daniel Hernandez, the intern who saved Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' life in the minutes after the Jan. 8 shooting rampage:

The outcome of the ASUA presidential election now rests in the hands of the student government's Supreme Court.

Both Daniel Hernandez and James Allen, candidates for president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, were disqualified from the race due to an excess of campaign violations. Both have stated their intention to appeal the violations, handed down by ASUA Elections Commissioner Michael Colletti, to the ASUA Supreme Court.

Each candidate is allowed no more than nine violations during the election cycle and ASUA officials have declined to comment on the number or nature of the violations.

Colletti said both candidates had already built their cases and presented them to the court before departing for spring break.

ASUA Clerk of the Court Rebecca Hull said that the official written reports detailing both candidates' statements disputing the violations will be delivered to the court on next Monday.
