An interesting one

The Libertarian party is suing the state of Texas to have John McCain and Barack Obama removed from the presidential ballots in Texas.

The reason: quite simple. BO and McCain both failed to meet the filing deadline to be included on the ballots.

The petition also alleges that the Democratic Party's late presidential filing falsely claimed under oath that Senator Obama had been nominated hours before the nomination actually occurred.

"The facts of the case are not in dispute," says Russell Verney, manager of the Barr campaign. "Republicans and Democrats missed the deadline, but were still allowed on the ballot. Third parties are not allowed on the ballot for missing deadlines, as was the case for our campaign in West Virginia, yet the Texas secretary of state's office believes Republicans and Democrats to be above the law."
It will definitely be an interesting case to follow.
