Libertarian Party files Ohio ballot access case

Dave Harding’s Blog reports:

On June 6, the Ohio Libertarian Party filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against the Ohio Secretary of State, alleging that the party is a qualified party and should have its nominees for president, vice-president, Congress and state legislature placed on the November ballot. Libertarian Party of Ohio v Brunner, 08-391.

The old law on how a new party gets on the ballot was struck down in 2006 and the legislature still hasn’t written a new law.

    Thanks for picking up this story. I think the Associated Press is also working on a story about the lawsuit; I talked to a reporter about it today.

    So I guessing this is why the petition to get Barr/Root on the ballot is as independents. I was wondering about that.
