Proving that our former Poor Idiot Governor is still an idiot, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has decided to weigh in on the election of a university student body president. The student in question is Bobby Brooks who was the first openly gay student to be elected as Student Body President at Texas A&M University. Perry, the first Aggie to serve as Texas Governor, claims that the election was stolen from Robert McIntosh – son of a major Republican fundraiser and Donald Trump supporter. McIntosh won the election by 750 votes but was disqualified by the student election commissioner after accusations because of accusations of voter intimidation. A&M’s judicial court — the university’s version of a student supreme court — overturned McIntosh’s disqualification, ruling there wasn’t sufficient evidence to prove he intimidated voters. The court did find, however, that McIntosh failed to disclose financial information for glow sticks briefly featured in a campaign video and he was thus, disqualified. Brooks, who came in second place in the election, was named the victor.
Perry, apparently not busy enough managing America’s energy needs, decided to weigh in in commentary published by the Houston Chronicle. Perry played the race card in questioning the decision of A&M students.
The desire of the electorate is overturned, and thousands of student votes are disqualified, because of free glow sticks that appeared for eleven seconds of a months-long campaign,” Perry wrote. “Apparently glow sticks merit the same punishment as voter intimidation.
What if Mr. Brooks had been the candidate disqualified? Would the administration and the student body have allowed the first gay student body president to be voided for using charity glow sticks? Would the student body have allowed a black student body president to be disqualified on anonymous charges of voter intimidation?
Here is a suggestion, former Governor Good Hair. Mind your own frigging business. If the son of one of Trump’s sycophants can’t follow the rules, just butt out. And if for some reason you don’t have enough to do, call up Donald Trump and tell him you need work.
