Mock “Candidog 4 Prezident” ASUO presidential campaign surfaces on Facebook

A new “campaign” seeking for the presidency at the University of Oregon student government joined Facebook on Monday.

Running against the three official campaigns — One Oregon, Duck Squad and I’m with UO whose Facebook pages gained hundreds of likes from the student body, Candidog 4 Prezident has had 21 so far.

Its platform, or “Platbork,” is advocating goals that differ from the other three campaigns.

“NO NEED FOR I-FEE., WILL WWORK 4 BONEZ,” its website said.

But Candidog 4 Prezident also focuses on what’s important:

Stay tuned for more ASUO election coverage.
