The Finance Club at Harvard University is a prestigious organization for Harvard MBA students. The student members have the opportunity to interact with public officials like Senator William Proxmire and business executives such as Bruce Wasserstein. The Finance Club also serves as a network for job hunting.

Each spring, the club holds elections for its officers, including two co-presidents. In the spring of 1992, after initial balloting, there was a tie between two teams of two co-presidents. Murry Gunty was one member of one of the teams ...view middle of the document...

Setiap musim semi, klub tersebut mengadakan pemilihan pejabat struktural organisasi termasuk dua co-presidents. Musim semi 1992, setelah proses pemungutan suara awal dilakukan, dua tim dari dua co-presidents memiliki hasil suara yang sama. Murry Gunty adalah salah satu anggota sebuah tim co-president yang sangat sibuk mempengaruhi dan mengajak mahasiswa untuk memberikan suaranya. Dua mahasiswa yang diajaknya memberikan suara menggunakan nama anggota Finance Club yang sedang absen. Dua suara yang dimanipulasi tersebut memberikan kemenangan pada tim Gunty.

Setelah hal ini terungkap, proses pemilihan dihentikan dan tim pesaing Gunty dinyatakan menang dan kandidatnya ditetapkan sebagai co-president. Di lain pihak, Gunty diharuskan menulis sebuah paper tentang etika.

Unethical behavior itu terjadi ketika Gunty melakukan rigged election, manipulasi pemilihan supaya kandidatnya memperoleh kemenangan. Dia memasukkan dua suara yang berasal dari mahasiswa bukan anggota Finance Club; sehingga hasil seri yang didapat pada pemungutan suara awal berubah dan timnya memperoleh kemenangan. Tidak berhenti sampai disitu, karena setelah kasus ini terkuak, kandidat tim pesaing Gunty akhirnya naik menjadi co-president dan ada “hukuman” membuat paper tentang etika untuk Gunty. Proses politik yang coba dilakukan oleh Finance Club HBS menjadi tercoreng akibat peristiwa ini.

Apa yang dilakukan oleh Gunty ini dapat dipengaruhi oleh nilai-nilai personal pada diri Gunty atau bisa jadi semata hanya karena dorongan internal untuk memenangkan timnya. Di sisi lain, mungkin tidak adanya aturan dan hukuman yang jelas terhadap pelanggaran-pelanggaran spesifik yang dapat terjadi selama proses pemilihan co-president Finance Club MBS, turut mempengaruhi Gunty dalam melakukan rigged election tersebut. Hal ini terbukti dengan adanya “kesan kebingungan” dalam memberikan hukuman pada Gunty. yang...
