Last night, the #AbolishHonorCourt campaign won, and won decisively.

But the struggle is not over. A thread.
Before this thread we uplift and honor the Jewish community both on and off campus in face of the troubling actions on campus today.
Last night was the final time the GPSF Senate met for the 2018-2019 and the last time the outgoing president could make a nomination.

Why does that matter? Well that's who nominates the GPSF Honor Court appointees.

GPSF Code Title IV. Chapter 1. Article 2.D.1
Of course, some other things in there weren't followed either. But here we are.

Nevertheless, if comments offered last night are any guide, Chastan plans to bypass oversight by noming an unvetted candidate during summer session.

(This is not part of his platform btw)
While I would characterize any nomination by Chastan, who is decidely not the outgoing president, as illegitimate, doing so in summer sessions would allow such a nominee to go through the Summer Governance Legislative branch which is... different.
Full Senate this year boasted more than 100 Senators from more than 70 departments, and all of them were elected by and held town halls with their constituents.

Summer Senate is 5 senators selected by committees themselves selected by the Senate (3 degrees of indirection).
Further, the summer governance legislators must be confirmed by Senate vote at the April session (as shown above) and no such vote happened (as shown in the agenda for the April session).
The options now seem to be:

(1) Honor Court faces de facto abolition
(2) A completion subversion of even nominal democracy within GPSF.

I think we all know what we want but also recognize what is much more likely and what it will mean for the days and months ahead.
