Who filed it? His senate opponent:

A student at Southern Oregon University (SOU) was forced to suspend his campaign for a senate seat on his school’s student government after an opposing candidate filed a grievance against him for refusing to use gender-neutral pronouns.

“I would like to know why you should be able to take office despite your homophobic and transphobic comments on Facebook,” candidate Oneta Cantlon asked during an open forum with one of her opponents, Chase Gildea.
