Fraud charges




by CSJ


Central Student Judiciary (CSJ) last night continued
deliberations on charges of "gross fraud" in last month's all-
campus elections.
In a five-hour hearing, the court heard further testimony
and cross-examination on a charge brought by Student Gov-
ernment Council Member Joel Silverstein of the Radical Peo-
ple's Coalition and others, who claim that "massive ballot
stuffing in favor of GROUP Party" took place during the
Schaper and members of GROUP have repeatedly denied
the charges.
Silverstein presented testimony from chemistry Prof. A.A.

Suit caim s
job bias In
eity schools,
Charges of discriminatory hir-
ing and promotion practices have
been filed against the Ann Arbor
public school system by James
Bunten, Director of Personnel Ad-
ministration for Ann Arbor
schools, The charges, filed with
the Department of Health, Edu.'
cation and, Welfare (HEW), the
Michigan Civil Rights Commis-
sion, and the Ann Arbor Princi-
pals' Association, allege racial bias.
In the suits, Bunten charged
that Superintendent of Schools
Bruce McPherson made recom-
mendations for the position of as-
sistant superintendent for plan-
ning before all the applications
had been filed or considered.
The hiring recommendation was
made to the Board of Trustees,
who have final apiroval in hir-
ing. Bunten claimed -that the
Board has not failed to approve
a recommendation in over 34
Bunten, who applied for the
position in question, claimed that
he was prevented from getting it
because administrators predeter-
mined who would receive the po-
Bunten said he will refuse the
job if findings indicate that racial
bias was involved.
According to Bunten, such pro-
motion practices are common in
the school system, a key allega-

lently cast for GROUP."
However, SOC Members Marty
Scott and Bob Nelson of GROUP,
as well as Curt Steinhauer of
RAP, who were collectively act-
ing as defense counsel for SGC
and Schaper, described the plain-
tiffs' case as "a sham" and pre-
sented expert witnesses last night
in an effort to damage the credi-
bility of Gordus' testimony.
Last night the court reviewed
an Inspection of the ballotsrheld
this week to determine the credi-
bility of Gordus' claims. However,
due to time limitations the "neu-
tral observers" appointed by the
court had only reviewed some 2,200
of the 5,229 ballots.
The plaintiffs charged that the
new ballot review could not be
considered valid due to Schaper's
alleged "tampering or allowing of
tampering" with some 800 of the
2,200 reviewed ballots.
Silverstein attempted to show
that the pattern of so-called "sus-
pect ballots" had changed drastic-
ally between two inspections this
week, and that Schaper was the
only person who had access to the
However, the court decided that
not enough evidence of tampering
was presented to necessitate re-
calling Schaper to testify.
Debate of evidence and testi-
mony continued into the early
morning hours as the court was
unable to reach any decision.
