Senator Swick resigns due to charges of disclosing election information

By Northern Star staff

Student Association Senator Jake Swick resigned Wednesday due to allegations of disclosing election information as a Board of Elections member.

Swick was to appear before the SA Senate on Sunday to face charges of giving election information to the Voice of Change ticket during the 2015 executive election, but the hearing has been canceled because of his resignation, said Senate Speaker Dillon Domke.

“Out of respect for my fellow Senators, the student body and the Student Association, I feel as if the best course of action for me is to resign from office,” Swick wrote in his resignation letter, according to an SA news release.
