KU student leaders will not be impeached

The University of Kansas Student Senate voted against beginning to impeachment proceedings against three student leaders, according to the Little Apple Post.

Jessie Pringle, student body president; Zach George, student body vice president; and Adam Moon, student body chief of staff were allowed to remain in office after the Wednesday vote.

A senate committee demanded that the three leaders be impeached last November, mostly due to what was seen as their reluctance to support demands of diversity promotion on campus, according to the Little Apple Post.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the impeachment committee found no allegations of misconduct amongst the leaders, and concluded that their impeachment would start slippery slope of removing leaders from office because they are not popular.

After the impeachment efforts began, the student leaders released a list of diversity-related proposals they intend to pursue during their terms.
