ASA has money stolen, throws away still more

This man is in trouble.  And so is his organization, in my opinion.

The Arizona Daily Wildcat reported yesterday that former Arizona Students’ Association executive director Maceo Brown is being accused of stealing more than $200,000 over a period of four years.

ASA is the organization I posted about earlier that charges every university student one dollar every semester for its lobbying work.  In other words, the guy spent students’ money in order to eat at Olive Garden, etc.  Most students probably don’t know about that dollar-a-semester thing, either.

Meanwhile, I got my dollar back the other day via snail mail.  That’s right; your Arizona Students’ Association spent 39¢ in order to send a check for one dollar, not including the cost of labor, the envelope, and the accompanying letter.  And you thought the government was inefficient.

ASA check for one dollarASA letter

Garrett, thanks for your post. Yeah, as far as I know ASU is the only school to send the e-mail out...which is very similar to the letter posted on the ASA site.

So, your thoughts on the situation?
