On Friday, August 15, the Bob Barr campaign attempted to have the Secretary of State authorize local clerks accept late filings of signatures. Don Cookson of the Secretary of State’s office indicated that there is no provision to authorize such a late filing.

The signatures filed by the August 8 deadline amounted to 3,200, short of the 4,000 valid signatures required.

The Libertarian Party is expected to go to court to force the state to accept the late signatures.

  1. What the hell is wrong with the Libertarrian Party’s math these days?

    I’m sure my 5 year old grandson could figure out that if you need 4,000 valid signatures, you don’t respond by collecting only 3,200 signatures, handing them in, and say, “There you go; are we on the ballot now?”

    Duh.

    I hate to use the word “stupid” to describe our political director, but didn’t they teach fundamental math in the schools he attended?

    Man!

  2. So, what has happened with the Barr campaign “forcing late submission” of petition signatures?

    I guess it is OK to whine about a decision in Texas of late submission signatures of the major parties (in their favor), but also whine about when it isn’t reversed for Barr’s campaign.
