Seems like it’s a lot easier to get legitimate candidates off the ballot than it is to remove a complete fraud. Why is justice so swift– and “bipartisan” in this case, but such an uphill battle with Obama?
Virginia Attorney General Intervenes in GOP Primary Ballot Dispute
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) announced today that he will intervene to ensure that more Republican presidential candidates will appear on the state’s primary ballot.
Thanks to newly stringent enforcement of rules requiring 10,000 valid signatures, only Rep.Ron Paul of Texas and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney made it onto the ballot for the state’s March 6 primary. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry both cried foul, with the latter suing in federal court. Gingrich, Rep.Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman all signed onto that effort on Saturday.
“Recent events have underscored that our system is deficient,” Cuccinelli said in a statement. “Virginia owes her citizens a better process. We can do it in time for the March primary if we resolve to do so quickly.” (YEA- for sure!– G.M.)
