Close race livens up poll results
By Jessica Fargen
A run-off, a coin-flip and a
seemingly popular newspaper
columnist helped make
Wednesday’s ASUN elections a lit
tle crazier than usual.
In one of the more surprising
developments, it appeared some
students actually liked the idea of
“sunshiny days and lollipops.”
Todd Munson, a Daily
Nebraskan columnist who encour
aged students to write him in as
Association of Students of the
University of Nebraska president,
received more than 400 votes for
president, first vice president and
second vice president.
Students also wrote in Munson
as a senator for at least seven col
In his more than 15 years as
electoral commissioner, Ned
Hedges couldn’t remember the last
time one person had received so
many write-in votes in an ASUN
Hedges said Munson’s run at
ASUN president definitely made
him stand out.
“It is certainly the most success
ful one I can recall,” Hedges said.
Munson wasn’t alone as a write
in candidate. Names such as Bill
Clinton, Eazy-E, Homer and Marge
Simpson and A1 Gore were found on
And at least three students
thought Munson and Sara Russell,
ASUN president-elect, would make
a good team.
Russell said it was good Munson
had decided to campaign, even
though he could not have taken
“Todd Munson got people inter
ested that probably would not have
voted if he had not thrown his hat in
the ring,” she said. “They may have
a bigger interest in it next year.”
Although Munson made history,
Russell and Kelly Hoffschneider
came pretty close.

If 31 more students had voted
for VISION’s John Wiechmann and
Jill Maaske, a run-off election -
which last occurred in 1990 - would
have been held, assuming 2,826 stu
dents still voted and the number of
write-ins remained constant.
But one thing that did not
remain constant was Stephanie
Artz’s senatorial spot in the
On Wednesday VISION’s Artz, a
junior, thought she had won by one
vote over COMMIT’s Vernon
Miller, a sophomore.
But after the Electoral
Commission recounted the votes
Monday in Omaha, Miller had
received 90 votes to Artz’s 89.
Electoral Commission staff did
hand counts, but they did not match
the counts done by the counting
machines, causing them to look at
the ballots a little closer.
They then realized several of the
ballots were cut incorrectly, keeping
the machines from reading them
Also, several students had filled
in circles half-full or on the wrong
side of the ballot.
The seventh senatorial spot in
the College of Arts and Sciences,
tied at 298 votes, was picked a little
Nate Clabaugh and Molly
Weichman sat across from each
other as Tag Herbek, Electoral
Commission member, tossed a coin
to determine who would become the
next Arts and Sciences senator.
Clabaugh, a sophomore, won
with the flip of the coin.

But Electoral Commission
members did not have to flip a coin
to decide what to do about $21 in
fines Munson owed for violating
ASUN campaign rules.
Members were skeptical about
whether Munson would pay the
fines, so they voted to give him the
option of doing five hours of com
The catch is Munson’s commu

many a joke in his columns.
Masturbating man at large
A man seen masturbating in the
backyard of the Alpha Phi Sorority
house on one of the coldest nights of
the year is still at large.
Shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday,
when temperatures hovered around
zero, witnesses spotted the man.
Their cries of “Oh my god” startled
him, University Police Sgt. Mylo
He stopped masturbating and fled
out of the backyard by the Wick
Alumni Center toward R Street.
The man is described as white, 6

with dark hair. He was wearing a
A man and his girlfriend were
robbed in an alley near his house
Just after 10 p.m. the victim, 24,
parked his car on 12th Street and
started to walk toward the alley
between 12* and 13* streets and A
and Washington streets with his girl
friend when he noticed a man sitting
by the entrance to the alley,
The man followed the couple into
the alley where he demanded their
money and threatened to shoot them.
Although the victim did not see a gun
he took $ 10 out of his wallet and laid
it on the ground for the robber, who
took the money and left.
Two bicyclists were robbed as
they walked their bicycles along A
A yellow Cadillac stopped in
front of the victims, ages 17 and 20,
near Seventh Street, Heermann said.
The passenger rolled down his
window and asked the bicyclists if
they wanted some “bud.” When they
refused the passenger demanded
money. Nineteen dollars later, the
Cadillac was on its way.
The passenger is described as a
black male, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weigh
ing 225 pounds with short hair.
