In the challenge filed against Green Party Congressional Candidate Dan Kairis’ signatures, the challenger suggests that his own mother’s signature is a forgery. Kairis was only required to file 38 signatures to get on the ballot. He filed 62, mostly friends and family he admits.
Christina Tobin of Free and Equal are defending Kairis in the challenge. The Daily Herald:
Tobin said the lawyers for Cattron’s challenge are well-connected to the Illinois Democratic Party and represent “frivolous objections.”
“This is literally an objection in bad faith,” Tobin said. “The voters deserve voices and choices. There’s no limit to how far these (party) leaders will go to ensure voice and choice stays off the ballot.”
