Posted on 05/01/2018 11:28:17 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
Cornell Republicans are worried that students may have collected as many as 88 tickets to lower turnout for Tuesdays Dick Cheney lecture in a move taken without seeking approval from the student organizations leading the protest against the former U.S. vice president.
Marco Antonio Peralta-Ochoa, freshmen representative-at-large for the Student Assembly, approached members of the Cornell Republicans and admitted to collecting dozens of tickets countless times in what Weston Barker, current C.R. freshmen representative and incoming treasurer, considered a serious, 45 minutes to 1 hour-long conversation in Amit Bhatia Libe Cafe last Wednesday.
Peralta-Ochoa declined to comment to The Sun and did not confirm nor deny Barkers allegation.
Call Auditorium has a capacity of 600 people, so roughly one-sixth of seats will be empty if Barkers allegations are true.
Omar Din, secretary for Islamic Alliance for Justice, a student organization leading the planned protest on Tuesday, denied that any other student organizations participating in the protest endorsed or are aware of the ticket swiping, to his knowledge.
However, Din did acknowledge that there were rumors that individual students may be operating without organizational approval to collect tickets out of their own initiative.
according to Austin McLaughlin, outgoing Cornell Republicans president:
One of the most frustrating thing about people taking tickets is that, not only are people depriving other people of seeing the event, they are also creating a situation where you know, hurts us as we try to count up the number of people that attend the event, he said. Its kind of really pernicious.

Is Dick Cheney giving the lecture today?
I’m glad that he’s healthy enough to do such.
I’m surprised the real story isn’t people going hysterical with protest drumbeats and shrieking threats.
It could be that the passage of time is helping Cheney.
The W. Administration was quite a long time in the past, ending ten years ago. Many of today’s students were children, not paying any attention back in 2007 and before.
If 88 empty seats is the most damage they can do today, that’s good. If Cheney were to appear at UC Berkeley, it would be a far different story. Those professors never forget the years they were out of direct power.
Just practicing for how these Ivy Leaguers will lie and cheat when they get their government jobs upon graduation. There isn’t any honor among these thieves.
Leftist are fundamentally self justifying and, so, Evil. They have no problem doing this sort of thing...ever.
Omar Din, secretary for Islamic Alliance for Justice, a student organization leading the planned protest on Tuesday,
Know Islam. No peace.
Dick Cheney is Batman.
P.S. Who the hell are all these foreigners and why are they trying to sabotage Batman?
Like communist Chinese “volunteers” helping in North Korea or Russian volunteers in Syria or Ukraine?
Dick Cheney is baddass immortal, he will literally steal your organs to continue his crusade!
