Democracy Has Prevailed.

Romanelli (remember him?) Update

From the AP:
The Green Party's U.S. Senate candidate fell about 9,000 signatures short of the number he needs to qualify for the Nov. 7 ballot as counting stopped Friday, according to his lawyers and those of state Democrats. [emphasis added]
And that's according to his own lawyers.

The game's not over, however.
Lawrence M. Otter, a lawyer for Romanelli, said Friday he hopes to persuade Judge James R. Kelley to allow Romanelli to remain on the ballot when a hearing on his nominating petitions resumes Monday.
Not sure how it'll turn out, but it looks like Ricky's wasted tens of thousands of his supporters money trying to get Romanelli on the ballot.

Poor Ricky.

That is not how I see it.

Rick's investment was tiny.

Furthermore, the citizen investment and signature of more than 50,000 certified voters is a kick in the teeth to the democratic process, thanks to the Democrats.

The Un-Democratic Dems are shameful.

Thank God they got this guy off the ballot. We need to gte Slick Rick out of office and with the Green guy on there that gives us less chance of doing that.
