Dan Ashton is the current deputy chair of the ASSU Senate.
Mudslinging began in the ASSU Presidential race even before TUSB could blog about the race.
The context makes it worse: DeLong and SMD are probably running against each other next year.* The attack was, in effect, a negative campaign message.
An apology was issued by DeLong later the same day, saying that he never wished to “tarnish the reputation” of SMD.
[EDIT: removed additional commentary about the apology]
I hope everyone remembers that in a STUDENT Government, student body unification — not divisiveness — is the ultimate goal.
As a result, I really hope this is the last personal attack we see.
