SECRETARY OF STATE LIST OF PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES
CALLED "UNLAWFUL" AFTER PARTY’S CANDIDATES
LEFT OFF JUNE 5 PRIMARY BALLOT
SACRAMENTO – The Secretary of State’s office has omitted two of the four Presidential candidates on the Peace and Freedom Party’s primary ballot – and the independent party is demanding to know why.
A NEWS CONFERENCE is scheduled at 10 a.m. Thursday (2-9-12) at the SOS office (11th & O Streets) to provide details. Peace and Freedom Party State Chairperson C. T. Weber will be present.
SOS Debra Bowen has yet to respond, and in a statement issued today, Weber cites Elections Code sections that specify how presidential primary candidates are supposed to be selected by the Secretary of State, and suggests that code sections covering other parties may have improperly been applied to the Peace and Freedom Party candidates.
