Its amazing how similar student governments can be to real governments.
In order to reach their goal of 20% student voter turnout the Northeastern University Student Government Assocation provided a system of prizes to every 99th voter. There was a counter on SGA’s main web-site showing how many students voted.
A peculiar thing happened. While many students were unaware of this system, many SGA members were refreshing the clock over and over and racking up the prizes, such as free haircuts for life, for themselves.
You can see the source here, but its amazing how government at all levels can be so unaccountable.Published in
