    Virginia AG Intervenes In GOP Ballot Dispute As Blocked Candidates Join Suit | Fox News

    The current and past attorney general's along with both party chairman have now jumped into this issue--as to why 5 out of 7 GOP Presidential candidates did not make it on Virginia's primary ballot. Now the only question is--will this issue be settled before primary ballots are to be mailed out by Jan. 21st?

    You may want to read the article again--the DNC and GOP are under the same primary regulations in Virginia---and that's why both party chairman have commented-& both are supporting the republican state attorney general in this emergency action.-:cuckoo:--:cuckoo:

    It seems there are unintended consequences to making hard-assed election laws.

    Why stick with a rule when it clearly doesn't work and no one is happy about it?

    The rule was found to have problems- obviously. The political system is moving to correct it.

    I said when this happened this will not stand, and now it looks like it won't.

    They are dealing with it. Lawsuits. The GOP always pays attention to what the dems have gotten away with.

    No kidding:

    This concerns democrats too--as they are under the same requirements in Virginia. And I think everyone can see the implications if all 50 states behaved in the manner as Virginia--for their primaries--regarding RNC or DNC Presidential candidates. We would have every single state eliminating candidates based on decisions made by a few at the state level--who are on election boards. Other states would be trying to boot Mitt Romney and Ron Paul off of their primary ballots just for retaliation-& or to keep up with what Virginia has done---etc. etc.-

    A comment of "legal & Constitutional Embarrassment" is pretty damming coming from a former Attorney general of this state.
