June 26, 2008 in Grassroots Democracy
Yes, I get to be Perry Mason tomorrow. Or maybe Matlock?
Tomorrow at 4 PM I will appear before the state Elections Commission to argue that their staff’s decision to refuse to place the SC Green Party nominee, Eugene Platt, on the ballot because he lost the Democratic nomination, despite the fact that he won the Green Party nomination a full month before the Democratic primary, was wrong. I will argue that they must put our candidate on the ballot for any number of reasons, including what I see as a misinterpretation of state law and constitutional issues.
If you are old enough to remember what Graham Nash said when introduced at Woodstock, well, that’s me. Scared itless.
I just want to say that I will be out of pocket until at least Friday night. This site is a month old today and we have gotten more than 3100 visits, averaging 3 1/2 minutes and a total of almost 5800 page views, and that is for GPW.com only. We will see those numbers grow when GPW.org is merged and I begin to promote more aggressively.
For the moment, wish me well please, and think kind thoughts at 4 PM east coast time.
