    Small correction. George Schley was not an architect. He was a home builder among other things. His son, Perce, was an architect.

    @Dan Thanks… I’ve updated the story.

    All these accusations have been proven false. The Journal Sentinel redacted most of the things it claimed in its original article for lack of evidence, including the ridiculous claim that the members were marking girls with red x’s for date rape. The police searched the house and after confiscating 600 different items, including one of the member’s asthma medication, there was NO trace of date rape drugs found anywhere. TKE was one of the few organizations at UWM that cared about student involvement, and its short sighted articles like this that have destroyed its reputation at the cost of the students who attend UWM.

    TKEs never had a positive reputation to destroy. BTW, I don’t think “short sighted” means what you think it means.
