“Here’s Clay! One of the more prominent college Republicans on campus, Clay loved to vocalize his support for the things he believes in! Unless it’s homophobia, then he has to hide it behind thinly-veiled insults!," one of the posts read.

“Student government shouldn’t become partisan, but it always seems to come to that. It’s disappointing we can’t get past that.”
Another student that was mentioned on the page was sophomore Arjun Rondla. Hehe was accused of hating Black Lives Matter and was called a “cop lover."
According to Rondla, he believes the account was made by people who ran against them last year.

“Student government elections should not be so politicized,” Rondla told Campus Reform. “Students’ political views as long as they’re in the mainstream should not be relevant to their campaigns.”
Arizona State University has declined to comment about the specifics of any action taken against individual students.
