Decided July 7, 1986
Happened in Bethel Washington
Fraser gave a very vulgar and crude speech for nominating classmate, Jeff Kulham, for Associtate Student Body Vice President

"I know a man who is firm - he's firm in his pants, he's firm in his shirt, his character is firm - but most of all, his belief in you the students of Bethel, is firm. Jeff Kuhlman is a man who takes his point and pounds it in. If necessary, he'll take an issue and nail it to the wall. He doesn't attack things in spurts - he drives hard, pushing and pushing until finally - he succeeds. Jeff is a man who will go to the very end - even the climax, for each and every one of you.
