The Impact Party's treasurer
recently told police of a Valentine's
Day rendezvous with the Gator
Party's presidential candidate and a
former Student Body president who
reportedly asked at the meeting,
"How much is a [Student] Senate
seat worth, $100, $500 or $1,000?"
During the meeting, former
President Marc Adler "joked"
about how individuals "may have
had a new vehicle purchased for
them or a semester's tuition paid
for when they abandoned their po-
litical party and joined his political
party," reports show.
In a telephone interview
Saturday, Impact campaign trea-
surer David Meyrowitz said no po-
litical bribe was explicitly offered
to him by Adler, a UF law student,
or Gator presidential candidate Joe
Goldberg, "but it was really clear.
He (Adler) never came out and
said it, but it was obvious."
Meyrowitz said Adler, who
did most of the talking while the
"nicer" Goldberg played a "good
cop" routine,' then set a deadline
for him to align with the Gator
Party the same deadline for pro-
spective candidates to slate for the
"They were trying to plant the
seed of doubt in my mind about
my party," Meyrowitz said, by

one of the few human resources
vice presidents nationwide.
Cavanaugh was up against

"At the time I thought they were lying,"
he said, but he later added, "There are several
supporters who are no longer with us... It's
not just a series of random coincidences."
Just hours before the Feb. 15 slating dead-
line, several Impact supporters suddenly
changed to Gator, or bailed from SG politics
altogether, .reportedly under pressure from
members of the.Black Student Union, sources
Impact's treasurer candidate, Elda
Auxiliaire, also abruptly abandoned the
race, leaving presidential candidate and cur-
rent Student Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin
shocked and disheartened, he said.
Innovate Sen. Michelle Lightborne quick-
ly replaced Auxiliaire on the Impact ticket.
Goldberg, however, said Sunday that
Meyrowitz' allegations were an Impact po-
litical tactic and that no bribes were offered
during the meeting.
"These tactics only serve to delegitimize
Student Government in the eyes of the stu-
dent body," Goldberg said in a telephone
Adler could not be reached for comment
for this article. Goldberg said the former
president is out of the country. He did not
recall Adler mentioning tuition payments,
money or vehicles during the meeting.
"I'm sure Marc (Adler) joked a couple
times ... But who doesn't joke around?"
In a February interview with UPD in-
vestigators, spurred by a complaint filed
by an adviser to Student Body President
Jamal Sowell, Meyrowitz reportedly "rein-
forced" that he was offered nothing during
the Valentine's Day meeting with Adler,
Goldberg and Gator supporters Sen. Jackie
Pace and Sen. Jason Sherry at The Swamp
According to Meyrowitz's account,
Adler, Student Body president from 2001-
02, said he "was not promising a Senate seat
if he joined their party" which statistically
had won more elected SG positions. /'
"I asked, 'The Greek party?' and he
(Adler) said, 'No, there's no Greek party.' He
was very adamant about that," Meyrowitz
Sowell's adviser, Lowell Wong, told UPD
investigators in February of a conversation
with Impact supporter Jessica Goodwin,
during which she detailed a.meeting with
Goldberg and Adler as well.
Wong said the duo ,reportedly asked
Goodwin her price to jump ship and sup-
port Gator's campaign to control $11 million
of students' money via SG.
However, Goodwin said Saturday that no
such meeting occurred and while she has
seen the Gator Party leader speak she has
never met "Goldberg or any of his colleagues
in private," confirming her account to UPD.
Goodwin said she has never been of-
fered anything in-exchange for political
support but did point investigators toward
"My support isn't for sale, and I'm still
supporting the Impact Party," she said.
Wong told UPD one day after the Feb. 15
slating deadline that he believed Goodwin
St t was approached because
S.Goerment "she is influential in the
Black Student Union," re-
ports show, but Goodwin denied having any
Wong also reported that Goldberg held
an undetermined number of meetings, dur-
ing which the Gator leader allegedly offered
membership in Florida Blue Key to multiple
individuals in exchange for political support.
FBK is UF's oldest leadership honorary
and, according to circuit court records, has
had a role in determining the leadership of
influential SG positions.
The organization runs Gator Growl and
the Miss UF Pageant and boasts the mem-
bership of many big names in national-,
state- and student-level political circles
including Adler, Goldberg, Sherry, Pace
Goldberg said he did conduct meet-
ings with several influential students,
including "almost every single" college
council president, but never offered any
FBK memberships. Meyrowitz is president
of the Business Administration College
"I would never offer anyone member-
ship in (Florida) Blue Key," Goldberg said,
adding, "It's not like, if I'm elected, I can say,
'OK, you're in Blue Key now.'"
UF probes bribery charge
After interviews with Wong, Goodwin
and Meyrowitz, UPD closed the criminal
investigation and passed its findings to UF's
Student Judicial Affairs, whose staff has not
yet returned phone calls.
UPD spokesman Joe Sharkey said SJA
officials might be interested in information
turned up during the investigation but
added, "There's no proof at this point, and
that's the reason they (investigators) didn't
go forward criminally."
A criminal act would have to be un-
covered to reopen the UPD investigation,
Student Judicial Affairs Director Cyrus
Williams will review UPD's findings and de-
termine whether charges should be filed in the
matter, according to the SJA Web site.
Goldberg said if he found members of his
party had, in fact, attempted to bribe others,
he would discuss the matter with them and
possibly seek their resignations. .

is on office
he Voice Party is'known around
campus as the "party of inde-
pendents." I, the sole executive
candidate from Voice, am an inde-
pendent Student Senator from the
College of Engineering, and party vice
chairwoman.Kathryn Hutchins is the
independent senator from Forestry.
Because I won my seat as an inde-
pendent, I do not owe the traditional
Student Government system any
favors. Voice has created a coalition
of motivated students across campus
working for an SG that reaches out to
students and meets their needs.
Voice is not a traditional party with
a chairman cutting backdoor deals and
writing a platform at 2 am. We held a
series of focus groups to hear student
needs. Based on the results; Voice an-
nounced the following platform issues
at a press conference: starting a Sunday
bus service, increasing the number

Lauer parking spots,
Speaking Out conducting a fi-
for fairer dis-
tribution of student funds, reserving
graduate parking spaces in the com-
muter lots, and more. After the press.
conference, other parties have added
our action items, such as a Sunday bus
service, to their platforms. With multi-
ple parties working toward a common
goal, a lot can be accomplished.
Voice only is running a treasurer
candidate to.emphasize how impor-
tant the position is. A treasurer should
be independent and not be swayed by
traditional SG politics. I will serve with
integrity and work for the best interests
of student organizations. I will hold a
forum open to all student leaders so all
interested parties will know the bud-
get process. Although the president
appoints a number of positions, I will
encourage the next SG president to
hold a forum explaining all appointed
positions (cabinet, directorships and
others) and encourage all students
across campus to apply
I highly encourage split-ticket vot-
ing. Multiple parties should be rep-
resented in SG. The best situation for
diverse representation would be two
different parties to split the executive
ticket. Also, Voice hopes that all four
parties will have representation in
Student Senate. Voice wants to have a
say in SG, not to try to take it over.
In 1988, independent candidate
Scooter Willis won the Student Body
presidency. Even though Voice can-
not have the first independent ex-
ecutive candidate elected, Voice can
make history by only running one
executive candidate for treasurer and
winning the treasurer's race. If you
would like to get involved with the
"party of independents" or have a
candidate present at your next orga-
nizational meeting, submit contact info
at: www.VoiceParty.org. This Web site
will be up year round and not vanish a
week after elections as party sites have
in years past. Please support Voice sen-
ate candidates and, when it comes to
treasurer, "At Voting Hour Elect Justin
Lauer" at a polling location near you.
Justin Lauer is the Student Body
treasurer candidate for the Voice Party.
Gator Party knows both sides of SG spending
When I first decided to run for Student
Body treasurer with the Gator Party, I knew
it would be an opportunity to make an in-
credible difference in the life of every student
at UF. If elected, I will make sure Student

Students shouldn't lump
SG office in with others
Contrary to what you may think, the office of Student
Body treasurer is not a useless position tacked onto
the bottom of the executive ticket.
It's not like the treasurer positions you remember from
student organizations at your high school, which usually
were filled by people who wanted to have a fancy-sound-
ing title for their college applications without doing any of
the real work.
The reality is that the Student Body treasurer has a
great influence, over the approximately $11 million Student
Iri addition to being in a position to influence the spend-
ing decisions of SG, the treasurer also has veto power over
all spending bills.
A bill vetoed by the treasurer may only then be passed
after a two-thirds vote of the Student Senate which is
not easy to obtain if there is any party diversity in the
Senate. Such vetos are rare, but they still are an important
check on the SG financial system.
In fact, the treasurer has veto power even over the
Student Body president.
But how does that relate to the average student?
Simple. The treasurer has the ability to help make sure
that your money goes toward funding something that
benefits all students, such as increased bus routes or free
copying service instead of subsidizing something that
benefits only a few, such as, say, a freestyle underwater
basket weaving club bake sale.
Alternately, if you happen to feel that way, the treasurer
can make sure the bus system stays the same and ensure
that the basket weavers don't go hungry.
Because the treasurer has such influence, students
should take care to seek out the candidate whom they
think is most qualified and will best do the job.
Don't treat the treasurer position as an extension of
the presidential and vice presidential ticket. The treasurer
is separate from the other candidates on the ballot for a
If you choose, you can vote for a treasurer candidate
that -isn't from the same party you will support for the
other positions. If you think your favored party is weak in
the treasurer department, feel free to look elsewhere.
Today's Viewpoints includes guest columns from all of

moment to consider them-their qualifications, their pro-
posals for the future, and even how much enthusiasm they
seem to have (or not to have) for the office.

That way, you can judge their views firsthand and get a
taste of how they will operate if elected into office.
However much research you decide to do (or not do), at
least give it some thought before you sign away so much
control over student funds.
If you decide you'd rather just trust your party's judge-
ment or worse, if you decide not to vote at all don't
complain when you see your money being frittered away.

Progress prepared to take office
The Student Body treasurer is the person who
signs off on the allocation of $10.5 million of
Student Government funds. The students of
UF need a treasurer who is not just waiting it out
until they can be president or just adding another
line to their resume. UF needs someone who is
dedicated to the responsible management of stu--
As the head of the SG Finance Office, it is the
Student Body treasurer's responsibility to ensure
that these funds are spent wisely and for the ben-
efit of the student body, not just approved to ap-
pease a few friends and fulfill a deal made during
the campaign to secure votes.
I have been the SG Finance Office's budget
representative for the past two and a half years.
In the SG Finance Office, I have collaborated with
the Student Senate's Budget and Appropriations
Committee, created the annual reports on student
organizations' budgets and researched and ful-
filled budget information requests.

lives of so many UF students. I would like to see
SG funds allocated to a greater number of these or-
ganizations so that SG may play a larger role in the
lives of more students and support more of these
organizations' great activities.
Through my work in the Finance Office, I also

Speaking Out I will work with UF's various
departments and agencies
to put all forms online and
to explain to students as clearly as possible all
the steps of the various processes from holding a
meeting to making a budget request.
I have worked with the past three Student
Body treasurers and have seen their different
approaches and methods to directing the of-
fice. I will use my unique insider's perspective
to guide my leadership of the Finance Office. I
have seen what works and what doesn't. I know
where students' money is, where it has been and
where it is going.
Because of my work in the Finance Office
and my positive working relationships with the
other people working there, I will riot require an
adjustment or learning period. I already know
how the office works, who does what and what
needs to be done. I will not waste one second af-
ter taking office-I will immediately start work-
ing for every single one of the 48,000 students SG
is elected to represent.
As Student Body treasurer, I will hold myself,
every person in the Finance Office and every
student organization accountable for the use
and allocation of students' money.
I have been working to make the nost of-stu-
dents' money for two and a half years and will
continue to do so next year, whether I win or lose

want in SG, vote for Susan Vaz Henriques and

Letter to the Editor
Editor: I was disappointed-
to see the article in Friday's
Alligator entitled "LGBT posi-
tion hurts UF in Fla. House."
UF has a reputation for being
one of the hallmark institutions
for advancement in student
affairs. A position for coordina-
tor for gay and lesbian affairs
should be no more culturally
controversial than a Greek Life
coordinator. Rep. Dennis Baxley
would be unlikely to object in
the same manner against those

him alive. UF is proud to have

account collecting dust. It is hot fis-
cally responsible to have such an ex-
cessive Activity & Service Fee surplus.
The responsible thing to do with the
money is that which the student body
has always expected us to do with it:
use it to make their lives better.
Every student should be able to
find something on the Gator Party

better. Have you ever been stuck with a

with students of all religious,

affairs department is to support
all students in the best manner
possible, regardless of belief.
When the division of money

House of Representatives, I
certainly hope Baxley can put
aside his personal beliefs and
remember the job that he was
elected to do: to represent all of
his constituents, regardless of
race, status or orientation.

Impact has experience
Should be elected treasurer for
two simple reasons: I have ex-
perience distributing Student
Government money, and I have
experience using SG money. There
is a significant difference between
controlling SG money and using
SG money. It is absolutely essential
that a Student Body treasurer have
experience in both areas.
I have been involved in stu-
dent organizations since my fresh-
man year at UF. In the Caribbean
Students Association, I worked
on their annual Fashion/Talent
Show. With the Engineering
College Council, I was the di-
rector of National Engineers
Week activities including the
Engineering & Science Fair. These
programs may not have much
in common, but they both gave
me experience using SG funds. I
understand the waiting period be-
tween requesting to use funds and
then receiving the purchases or
even spending money beforehand
and waiting for a reimbursement
from SG finance. I have prepared
budgets for numerous student
organizations and defended these
budgets to the Board of College
Councils and the Senate Budget
Committee. I understand the
position of student organization
officers because I have been there
I also have significant experi-
ence distributing SG money. The
Engineering College Council is re-
sponsible for distributing SG money
to the 40 organizations under the
College of Engineering. As president
of this council, I have made myself
available to the organizations for
any assistance they may need with
their money. My role as the council's
president closely mirrors the role
of a Student Body treasurer. Over
Letter to the Editor
Chief Justice has no Greek bias
Editor: As journalists, you
are challenged to bring truth to
the people. You are challenged to
expose what really happened, not
just what the parties involved want
you to report. I never will question
your claims when you have a basis
to expose what you believe is that
truth. That being said, let's give you
far Dart for accusing Tobi Butensky
of serving the Greek system's in-
terest because of the SG Supreme
Court's decision to turn down the
online voting referendum. You
claim that the Supreme Court has
close ties to the Greek community.
It is true that Tobi, the Chief Justice,
was a member of Delta Phi Epsilon
Sorority when she was an under-
graduate student. Did you also
know Tobi vehemently despises.
the way SG politics work? She is
a good friend of mine, and I can
state with the utmost certainty that
if ever we had a non-biased Chief
Justice, she is it. Let us not judge her
because she wanted to be active in
a sorority during her undergradu-
Tobi will only vote to break a
tie. Yes, she is the Chief Justice,
so there is influence there, but in
all likelihood, the members of our
Supreme Court will vote how they
feel and not how Tobi tells them.
They are law students after all, and
law students do not take kindly
to others telling them how to act.-
Before yot print something like
that, ask around. There certainly
are fishy things that occur every
election season, and it is your job to
report them so students know who
they can trust. I will not argue with
you on that point. However, Tobi
would not do such a thing. You
can question the Court's decision.
You can criticize it as lacking merit.
However, do not question their
ethics unless you have a more le-
gitimate reason to do so. Affiliation
with an organization, although
raising a flag, is not absolute in de-
termining where one's loyalties lie.
If you asked around and it was re-
layed to you that Tobi was a shady
dealer, then fine. But it is clear that
you did not ask around, because if
you did, you would find that most,
if not all, find Tobi to be a wonder-
ful person with loyalty to ethics.

in getting their funds. During my
term as a student senator, I also have
assisted student organizations in
making special requests for money
in addition to their original budgets.
That requires doing research, pre-.
paring a request, going before the
Senate Budget Committee and then
finally before the Student Senate. I
have helped student organizations
obtain over $40,000 of SG money
in this manner. I know how to get
funding from SG because I have
been in the Student Senate and have
gone through it myself.
As Student Body treasurer, I will
make the outside revenue accounts
for student organizations through
student government finance more
user-friendly. I will increase knowl-
edge and awareness of where all $11
million-of SG money goes next year.
I will increase coordination between
the Senate Budget Committee,
which determines the budget, and
the treasurer, who helps- student
organizations spend budgeted
money. I will improve the acquisi-
tion process so students can spend
their money expediently. I also will
advocate for the entire financial pro-
cess to be available online to be more
accessible to students. Most impor-
tantly, I will make myself a constant

If you go back and look at UF's season as
a whole, not to mention the last game against
Kentucky at Rupp Arena, it was clear that the
Gators had a chance.
In the Kentucky game, the Gators fought back
from a big deficit and only lost by three points.
Three points in one of the toughest arenas in the
country showed me that this team could hang

Beating any opposing team was a question,

With only two minutes left in the game, Walsh

Wild win against Wildcats
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
The terrible tease had become all too fa-
miliar for Coach Billy Donovan.
For four years, his Gators had reached
. the threshold of defeating Kentucky, only to
be bounced by the Southeastern Conference
"For whatever reason, they always seem
to have the ball on the last possession,"
Donovan said. "They always find a way to
come up with that play or that shot to pro-
pel them to victory."
So as Donovan crouched on the sideline
with the Gators trying to nurse a 1-point
lead through yet another Kentucky clincher,
all he could do was brace himself, saying,
"Here we go again."
But with 11 seconds remaining UF's
defense dug in, forcing Wildcats forward
Kelenna Azubuike to take a desperation
The shot careened off the rim's left side
and, seconds later, the elated Gators cel-
ebrated a 53-52 win with a tabletop dance

game at the O'Connell Center, the Gators

mates for the last time.
"What a way to go out," Walsh said: "I
mean, I'll never play another game in here
with those guys. It's the best win of my ca-
reer of my entire life."
Walsh overcame 1-for-5 shooting in the
first half to lead the Gators with some key
shots and hustle plays during the game's
waning minutes in which he scored six of
his 11 points.

fest," the Wildcats turned a one-time 5-
