McCotter was seeking a sixth term in the House of Representatives in what was considered one of the safest districts in the country last year before it was found he did not gather the minimum 1,000 valid voter signatures needed to be put on the 2012 primary ballot, despite turning in 2,000 to the Michigan Secretary of State.

According to Tony Voisin, assistant vice president of Student Affairs, the fraternity was suspended for violating section 3.2.13, which prohibits illegal alcoholic possession, consumption or distribution, among other violations.
