Elections season is over, which, these days, means it’s time for recount/contest season! Rather than recount the Trasolini/Platt saga at great length, we’ll recap shortly, and then present the only result we care about: ACKBAR ACKBAR ACKBAR
- Trasolini loses by one vote, cast by AUS EA Matt Naylor to break a tie.
- Trasolini writes open letter, claiming that ballots were miscounted (he has proof!!) & he should have won by two votes.
- Wahmbulance called.
- Recount reveals that Platt is still winner.
Anyway, here’s a thought to cheer you up, Artsies. Sure, we’re starting the new elective year on a wonky note. But there’s so much for us to anticipate! Yes, you, Foresighted Arts Voters, had the courage—the understanding—the bravery to elect Seannie C., a.k.a. ADMIRAL ACKBAR. We here at the Confidential (okay, I here at the Confidential) are Huge Fucking Star Wars nerds, and we’re super-excited for the opportunity to spend an entire year doing variations on the trap meme.

When shit’s about to get funky:
WE’RE SO EXCITED!!! WE’RE SO EXCITED!! WE’RE SO SCARED
