‘Provocative’ college editor arrested for election fraud

Matt Weaver

The North County Times reported last Tuesday that the editor of Cal State San Marcos’s “provocative, unsanctioned campus publication,” The Koala, was running for student body president. Matt Weaver, however, failed to mention his affiliation with the tabloid in his candidate profile, the paper noted. This might be the reason for that:

The tabloid, which billed itself as a parody, featured explicit violent and sexual content, including lists such as “top five excuses for rape,” and “top 10 breakup lines to use on a girl you kidnapped.”

One issue depicted a student’s face digitally altered onto a pornographic image of two women.

Three days later, the North County Times reported that the election was canceled — because editor/candidate Weaver allegedly tampered with election files on a university computer and was arrested. He posted $50,000 bail and was released from jail Friday morning.
