Ohio Libertarians seek to have candidates put back on ballot, appeal ruling

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/21/2014 - 04:55
By Kim Palmer CLEVELAND (Reuters) - The Ohio Libertarian Party will appeal a federal judge's ruling that would effectively strike its candidates for governor and state attorney general from the November ballot, a party spokesman said on Thursday. Ohio's secretary of state, Republican Jon Husted, booted the candidates from the May primary earlier this month due to errors by the petitioners in gathering signatures, which would also make them ineligible for the general election if the decision stands. U.S. District Judge Michael Watson on Wednesday upheld Husted's decision to remove Charlie Earl and Steven Linnabary, the Libertarian candidates for governor and attorney general, but criticized the Republican and Democratic parties. Watson called the man who challenged Earl's petitions a "guileless dupe" and said the Republican Party orchestrated efforts to remove the Libertarian candidate from the governor's race.
