ACLU files suit to get Barr on Massachusetts ballot

BOSTON – The American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts has filed a lawsuit asking state election officials to place the Libertarian Party’s national presidential candidate on the ballot.

The ACLU said today the state Libertarian party put a local presidential contender on its nomination papers after officials at the Massachusetts Elections Division said they could substitute a national candidate later.

ACLU legal director John Reinstein says officials later rejected the party’s requests to substitute national Libertarian candidate Bob Barr for the local nominee, George Phillies.

  1. I see on the bostontea.us site that the Boston Tea Party has endorsed George Phillies in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Who is that incredibly tall black fellow George has as a running mate? Looks to be Chris Bennett in both states.
