I understand exactly what happened. You protected a friend that deserved a higher punishment and then when you were told that he was going to have a higher punishment said you'd leave... (Simplified but it's what happened)
I believe that Finch would be a great person for this role. He has proven as Governer that he is able to handle complaints as well as being pushing improved roleplay and more enjoyable experience for all.
I've already pushed a fix to attempt to resolve it. If you continue to have the issue please feel free to open another bug report. A troubleshooting measure could be exciting to the lobby, changing slot then going back in.
