I smell Vattel.Not only that, but the candidate's deadline is 60 days before the general election? Gives the candidate insufficient time to pursue an appeal of the secretary of state's ballot placement [highlight]denial[/highlight] with any hope of the only real remedy - appearance on the ballot. For that matter, an appeal of the SOS's ballot placement [highlight]approval[/highlight] by any other legally qualified party is also denied any real remedy by this time frame.I'm getting really sick of all this horse puckey.
