KU Student Leaders Will Not Be Impeached

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – The University of Kansas Student Senate has voted not to begin impeachment proceedings against three student leaders.

The senate voted Wednesday night to allow President Jessie Pringle, Vice President Zach George and Chief of Staff Adam Moon to remain in office.

Last November, a senate committee demanded the three be impeached, largely because of what was seen as their reluctance to support demands to promote diversity on the campus.

An impeachment committee found no allegations of misconduct against the three. The report also said their impeachment would set a dangerous precedent of removing officers from office because they aren’t popular.

After the impeachment efforts began last year, the three students released a list of diversity-related proposals they intend to pursue.
