Retraction of “Candidates Lose Points for Bribery in Junior Caucus Election” in Issue 16

The Spectator deeply regrets publishing an article on the Junior Caucus election in our June 15 issue that included a charge of bribery against two candidates, sophomores Sachal Malick and Anna Usvitsky. These students were never involved in such a violation, and in fact should never have been associated with such actions, according to Coordinator of Student Affairs Matthew Polazzo. The Spectator based its coverage on an accusation by the Board of Elections, due to erroneous reporting and a lack of thorough investigation. We hope to publish a full article on this incident in our first issue in the Fall, but for now we will post this retraction on our web site. We are truly sorry for any anguish this experience has caused Sachal and Anna; we also regret the stain of the affair on the newspaper’s reputation and on our Stuyvesant community.
