Murphy's other potential challenger was Roger Bacon.
Oh great, another Emperialist running for office!

Fta: ""I am surprised that they are so afraid of someone who won't raise money and only is armed only with the truth,"

Well armed only with the truth *and* 1,951 faked signatures.

Yeah, reading the article I can see why they might be tossed.

What concerns me is how this person is NOT being indicted for election fraud.

This is criminal.

Hey, justice was served for that guy that passed a $20 fake bill.

Cue the Fark trolls that will claim that this makes Trump president for life.

"Fake signatures? Fuggetaboutit... Me, Vinnie, an' Nunzio will have three times as many real signatures by this time tomorrow.... for a modest consideration."

Mnnnnn I want to get tossed.
Gotta wait until after work though. Frowned upon here.

2 signatures from dead people?
My understanding of the Democratic ballot process is a minimum of five.

Hopefully any punishment is meted out while taking into account that the alternative was talking to people from New Jersey

Next time, don't hire ACORN for getting your signatures.

They sound like delusional Trumpers trying to run as spoilers.

Bacon had submitted 1,271 signatures to the state. He was trying to run under the "Make New Jersey Great Again" slogan.

Well... first of all...

There are 1951 signatures on your petition that you are claiming are valid.  As the judge I am claiming they are all false... Here's what we will do - I will sentence you to 1 day in jail for every falsified signature and I will instruct my staff to begin calling every single petition signatory.  If (by some miracle) we find that over 60% of them are valid I will waive the remainder of your sentence.  If more than 50% of them are falsified your jail time will be doubled.... shall we play a game?

She's kind of a political gadfly and couldn't seriously challenge Murphy.

HOWEVA! Menendez is so poorly thought of that in 2018, she got on the ballot, basically didn't run a campaign at all, and got like 36% of the vote.
 
2021-04-14 8:40:06 AM  
She got cut loose like a deuce.
 
2021-04-14 8:40:53 AM  
Seems like an attention whore.

You misspelled Veritas.

At least throw a thin veneer of legitimacy over that!

The right to not have a political opinion was almost taken away from these people, there should be stronger consequences for forced political association.
 
2021-04-14 11:38:42 AM  
Thrown off the ballot?  She should be thrown in jail.

FTFA: "I am confident that he knows what he's doing."

Yeah, I'm confident your getting-petition-signatures guy knows what he's doing, too. And apparently the judge is onto him, as well.

Wait, how where they able to tell they were fake without using Driver's License information?

Which also, after the Matt Gaetz corruption investigation, requiring DL numbers on mail in ballets is probably not an obstacle that would stop a corrupt GOP tax assessor from seeding the vote.
