ated and discriminated against him
because of his insistence that they rec-
tify the misuse of the funds. Huesmann
refused to comment on the allegations,
and Goldenberg could not be reached
yesterday.
"We hope to gain fair and equitable
treatment on the same level that his
peers are being treated.Thereason he's

not receiving that equitable treatment
is because hechose tooppose inappro-
priate, unethical and perhaps illegal
activities," said James Fett, the lawyer
representing Friendly in this case.
The lawsuit further alleges that
Goldenberg and Huesmann retaliated
and discriminated against him because
they believed he would report their
conduct.
"They are mad at me for bringing
the issue of the spending of the endow-
ment fundsinto the open, which hadn't
yet been done," Friendly said.
If the allegations are proven true,
the University could be found guilty of
violating the Michigan Whistleblower
Protection Act as well as the
University'sowncontract-renewalpro-
cedures. The Whistleblower Protec-
tion Act was established to protect
people who report official misconduct
or wrongdoing.
But the University is not worried
about the case."I know enough to say

spoken to Jonathan about his allega-
tions, and there's just no substance to

I've spoken to
Jonathan about his
allegations, and there's
just no substance to his
charges. We will show
that in court.'
- Walter Harrison
University spokesperson
July 22, the date the complaint was
filed, to respond to the charges.
"To my knowledge, we have not

comment, citing the lack of official
notification.

8 run for U.S. Senate

By Andrew Taylor
DAILY STAFF REPORTER
With the Aug 2. primary election
only days away, the race for the U.S.
Senate seat is drawing little attention.
NeitherRepublicancandidateSpen-
cer Abraham nor Ronna Romney has
held elected office.
ThesixDemocraticcandidateshave
failed to produce a leader and many
interest groups have not endorsed.
All this makes for aquietcampaign
as the Democrats attempt to unseat
incumbent Gov. John Engler.
However, in the Senate, incumbent
DemocratDonaldRiegleJr.is not seek-
ing re-election, which puts the seat on
the playing field for the challengers.
U.S. Rep. Bob Carr (D-Lansing)
has come under fire from liberals who
question his voting record. Carr voted
against the Family Medical Leave Act
and has dodged the party line before.
"I do have a moderate record. I
don't run away from it," Carr said.
Ironically, many insiders predict
that Can has the best chance to lure
Republican voters in the general elec-
tion, but he has to impress Democrats
in the primary first.
State Sen. John F. Kelly (D-De-
troit) is a University alum who has
continued his education while serving
public office. Heis now completing his
Ph.D. dissertation in political science
and international relations at Wayne
State University. He supports a bal-
anced budget amendment, arms con-
trol and reduced defense spending.
Lansing entrepreneurJoelFerguson
is also in the running. He has served as
East Lansing mayor and a trustee at
Michigan State University.
The only Democratic candidate to
receive an endorsement from a major
interest group has been former U.S.

Rep. William
Brodhead of
Bingham Farms.
The Michigan
Education Asso- ELECTION '94
ciation has given
him its approval.
State Sen. Lana Pollack (D-An
Arbor), also a candidate, said the lac
of endorsements is not a major issue
She said that focus has been throw
the governor's race and that make
fund-raising difficult. "It's almost
non-issue because it's a level playin
field,"she said,referring to the fact tha
the other candidates have not garnere
many endorsements either.
Carl Marlinga rounds out the fiel
of Democrats. The Macomb Coun
prosecutor places the entire campaig
on next Tuesday's election.
"The feeling here is whoever
the Democratic nomination is likel
going to be the next senator," he said.
The two Republican candidate
certainly don't agree with Marlinga
but first they must battleeachother for
their party's nomination.
Spencer Abraham is far from a po-
liticalnovice despite hislackofelected
experience. He chaired the Michig
Republican Party from 1983-90 o
served as deputy chief of staff for Vice
President Dan Quayle.

Party during the 1980s.
Opponent Ronna Romney hopesto
ride the wave of support she has found

and a member of United We Stand
America, Ross Perot's organizati
She supports term limits and pro-
stances. A long-time party activist, she
served as a Republican National Com-
mittee member from 1984-'92.
