Election Enforcement Not Even-Handed

Election Enforcement Not Even-Handed

The article in The Tech ["UA Election Results Delayed by Appeals," March 13] noted the charge against Raymond W. Szeto '99 of e-mail spamming his class.

But what about the other candidates? Why haven't their offenses been through the same scrutiny? Friends of mine, including juniors that don't even know her and sophomores for whom the letter was not intended, have complained to me that they have received unwanted e-mails from Pooja Shukla '99.

Shouldn't justice be fair? We have ostracized Szeto who was only eager to help out his class, and yet we overlook what the other candidates did. All of the candidates spammed. Why should only one be accused?
