Voters Should Decide Elections, Not Judges
Chris Casey has an interesting story about Carl Stevenson, an independent candidate who wanted to challenge State Rep. Doug Reichley. Apparently, Stevenson used the Manchurian candidate, Jake Towne, to circulate his nomination papers. Although Towne is a nonresident, Stevenson claims to have an email from the state elections office telling him he could use Towne anyway. If that's true, and I'd have to see the email to know for sure, it's incredible that a candidate would be thrown off the ballot for following instructions from the state elections office.
