Former Student Body President candidate Robert McIntosh, who was disqualified Friday on charges of voter intimidation, received an additional disqualification-caliber charge Sunday afternoon, this one for a finance report failure. 
McIntosh failed to account for some glow sticks seen in a campaign video posted to Facebook Feb. 19, according to the violation report. Candidates are required to turn in receipts for all materials used in any campaigning effort, according to Article VII, Section 1 of the election regulations. McIntosh’s campaign expense report does not account for the glow sticks seen in the video. 
While he was the original winner of the SBP race, McIntosh was disqualified Friday evening as well for voter intimidation, a charge which his campaign filed an appeal for Saturday afternoon. McIntosh’s campaign has disputed the expense report charge and will be appealing it as well.
