Congress to consider
By Michael Workman
The impeachment proceedings
against Student Congress Speaker Jen
nifer Lloyd will continue tonight as
congress members prepare to vote on
whether Lloyd's case will go to trial.
If congress votes to impeach Lloyd,
she will go to trial next Wednesday.
Five congress members introduced
the bill of impeachment, which includes
six charges of "misfeasance, malfea
sance and nonfeasance," at the Sept. 30
congress meeting. The Rules and Judi
ciary Committee voted at its meeting
last Wednesday to recommend impeach
ment on five of the six charges.
Several congress members said they
thought the bill would be passed, but
they differed on the possibility of
Lloyd said congress rules prevented
her from defending herself at the Rules
and Judiciary Committee meeting and
tonight's congress meeting. If the case
were to go to trial, she would be able to
present her side of the case.
"A lot of people will vote to take it to
trial, ironically, to give me a chance to
defend myself," Lloyd said.
Lloyd said that while she wanted to
be cleared of the charges as soon as
possible, she wanted to go to trial be
cause she wanted "to exonerate myself
from these charges. I want the student
body to understand the truth."
Rep. Philip Charles-Pierre, Dist. 17,
one of the bill' s sponsors, said he thought
congress members would vote to send
the case to trial.
"If there isn't what I call selective
hearing . . ., if people listen to plain facts
I think it will go to trial," he said.
Rep. Charlton Allen, Dist. 21, an

Representatives of the BCC Advi
sory Board said Tuesday that Chan
cellor Paul Hardin mast approve a
free-standing BCC and also must rec

free-standing center, the panel still

Advisory Board, said Trisha Merchant,
other sponsor of the bill, said, "Just the
fact that it passed the Rules and Judi
ciary Committee indicates widespread
support for the bill."
But Lloyd said support for the bill did
not translate into support for a convic
tion. "I feel absolutely confident that
the congress will vote against (convic
tion)," she said.
A two-thirds vote of the congress
would be required to remove her from
office, but "that's just not going to hap
pen," Lloyd said.
But Charles-Pierre said he thought it
was quite possible that Lloyd would be
"I think we can prove that each charge
is impeachable as well as a reason to
convict," he said. "I believe we have a
very strong case."

the case is presented by both sides."

"Hardin will have to acknowledge

ruling out the possibility of the board

Bill would alter but maintain riders
By Gary Rosenzweig
Student Congress members will con
sider two opposing bills at tonight's
meeting one calling for the removal
of restrictive riders on the budgets of
Bisexuals, Gay Men, Lesbians and Al
lies for Diversity and Graduate Stu
dents United and a newer bill that would
maintain the riders with minor modifi
cations. The most recent of the two bills,
which will be considered by congTess
during either tonight's meeting or the
meeting two weeks from now, would
leave B-GLAD and GSU as the only
groups with political speech restriction
riders on their budgets.
The riders prohibit the use of student
government funds in advocating, en

ernmental actions, candidates for pub
lic office or political action committees

two groups' budgets last February after
debate over whether B-GLAD, then
known as the Carolina Gay and Lesbian
Association, had violated the Student
Government Code by inviting a mem

The new bill, introduced by Rep.
Kevin Hunter, Dist. 14, would leave in
the restrictions but would add to the
riders a clause that would allow these
organizations to oppose or support Uni

Condo managers deny rape
By Jackie Hershkowitz
Assistant City Editor
A spokeswoman for the realty com
pany sued for negligence that allegedly
led to a tenant's rape said Tuesday that
the management bore "no responsibil
ity whatsoever" for the assault.
Chapel Hill Realty Inc., the company
that manages the plaintiffs Sherwood
Colony Condominium on East Franklin
Street, could not have prevented the
break-in and rape that occurred April 4,
said the realty spokeswoman, who asked
not to be named.

congress meeting, Hunter said there may
not be enough time to consider the bills
until the next congress meeting.
Hunter said his proposed restriction
was a clarification of the Student Gov
ernment Code, which prohibits groups
receiving student fees from supporting
candidates for political office or en
dorsing political parties. He added that
his bill was intended to give student
organizations specific guidelines to fol
low because the code was too vague.
Hunter also said Student Body Presi

to sign his bill than Cohen's version.
Finance Committee Chairman Chris
Tuck, Dist. 20, said he supported
Tuck said he believed that the Stu
dent Government Code eventually
would have to be changed to place the
same restrictions on all organizations

added that he was glad to see a consen

riders that required the groups to submit

The fact that Hunter proposed his bill
is a sign that Hunter thinks support for
Cohen's bill is too strong, Cohen said.
"My bill is the only one that does the
job," said Cohen.

from speaking out on anything politi
