A True Budding Politician

Student politics on campus are among the least useful ways students can spend time (IMNSHO).  Of course others will disagree and share their anecdotes and such, and that's fine, but I don't see me changing my mind on this.  Campus politics strike me as being very much like that of homeowners associations.

Anyway, here's a story of a local student politician:
Associated Student Body member Jorge Riley was seen throwing away piles of the school’s student-run newspaper, The Current, at the Student Center Thursday.

The newspaper staff was informed early this morning that Riley was seen gathering copies of the paper by the Starbucks lounge areas in the student center and putting them in the trash.  The papers that were thrown away showcase Riley as the lead story after he was handcuffed and ticketed for public intoxication by campus police on Nov. 6...

Riley has had an eventful week after being denied the ability to run on the ballot for the special elections and being handcuffed and ticketed for public intoxication on campus.
There was a time when I'd say Mr. Riley wouldn't get far in politics, now I'm not so sure.
