Tuesday's protest over University Police Department officers' Tasering and arrest of Andrew Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior, offered a chance for Chomp the Vote to increase its visibility, said a Student Government official.
Though the national spotlight is focused on the Tasering incident at Sen. John Kerry's appearance, discussion of the affair was limited at the Student Senate's meeting Tuesday night.
On Tuesday, Andrew Meyer rested. His attorney, Robert Griscti, said the stress of being tackled, Tasered and jailed took its toll on the UF telecommunication senior.
Despite a Monday incident where officers of the University Police Department Tasered and arrested a UF student during a speech by Sen. John Kerry, Student Government's speakers bureau will continue to operate normally, an SG official said Tuesday.
