I definitely see your point and agree if, in truth, these laws are set in stone. My question is: If this is the law, why, as pointed out by several people, have previous clerical error disqualifications been overturned in appeal? Exactly, what is the law?Appalled: Also, there is a huge difference when it's election paperwork. There are state rules & reglations that must be followed to the T. Someone contested the petition (rightfully so, there was a violation) and the Elction Board makes the call. Yep, it was a bad page, so that page is eliminated (that's the rule). If Kathy collected just one more page of signatures (just 15) SHE WOULD STILL BE GOOD. If you want something bad enough, you eliminate risks, "especially" with political paperwork. This one page was different than the others, it should have been an EZ catch. Kathy really has no one to blame but herself, she could have acquired more signatures and/or done a better job checking her minimum number submitted.
There whiners out here? They are the ones paying politics trying to blame everyone but Kathy. Kathy should step up and admit it's all her fault, then pursue the apeal process and throw herself at their mercy. My point? It's a bad petition page.
I do agree that Miller should have garnered more signatures, no matter what. It is common practice to have illegal signatures thrown out on electoral petitions.
