Jon Barrie Sues New Mexico Secretary of State over Petition Validity

On August 13, Jon Barrie, the Independent American Party nominee for U.S. Senate in New Mexico, filed a lawsuit in New Mexico Supreme Court to obtain a place on the November ballot. The case is Barrie v Duran, no. 33755. Here is the brief. Even though the Independent American Party is a qualified party in New Mexico, and even though it nominated Barrie in a proper state convention, the Secretary of State says he can’t appear on the ballot, for two reasons: (1) he needed 6,028 valid signatures, and he fell short, even though he submitted 10,279; (2) the election code says a party may not nominate someone who wasn’t a registered member of that party early in the year.

UPDATE: the Court has asked the Secretary of State to respond by August 20, and has set a hearing for August 22, at 2 p.m.

The Secretary of State acknowledges that a U.S. District Court said the law mentioned in (2) above is unconstitutional, back in March 2011, in Woodruff v Herrera. But, she is still enforcing it unless another court tells her not to. As to the number of signatures, Barrie’s brief points out many flaws in the state’s signature-verification process. Some signatures were even rejected because the signer “lives outside the district”, which is obviously absurd, since U.S. Senate elections encompass the entire state.

  1. The “juice” is unity, all parties and independents working together as a team.

    Check out the 9th USA Parliament, the team created by cast ballots and eballots as proof under pure proportional representation (PR), Sainte-Lague parliament seat distribution system, Hegenbach-Bishoff method. Where 1/1000ths of the votes (plus one vote) elects each of the 1000 members of parliament (MPs), with a guaranteed voter satisfaction minimum level of 99.9% plus 1000 votes:

    PS We’re looking for team players who want to work together in unity based on the mathematical count of (e)ballots cast as proof.

    Because of this math, we can work through the comedy of errors that continually haunts the peoples’ efforts for truly representative government.

    Nominate a new Cabinet Minister

    “fight back” should be the theme of 3rd parties – offering voters an alternative voice on policies is the second step; first we need a fair and just election process. Go git ’em Jon.

    Peter… haven’t you been reading posts 2 through 4? We’ve already won! Hooray! Hallelujah! World without end…Amen. (Just kidding!)

  5. @6 A good analogy for the pace of the 9th USA Parliament is the time line of the allies on Normandy Beach on June 6th 1945.

    Fight back, yes.

    But with fewer than 5000 feet on the ground, and expecting more than one million, as current pace we’re about seventeen minutes into the morning, “Battle of the Bulge” is more than 175,000 years into the future and we’re losing about 2500 units every 1/6th of a second.

    We have not “already won” and your comment is out of place.

    We’re still trying to build a large center with left and right wings, but our numbers are being rapidly diminished. Sure, we’ll have a few loons making off the wall comments, and we’ll have some jokes about those dead at the gate, dead in the water and the heads and body parts are flying all around.

    I myself have no legs and I’m in communication.
    But please, be realistic. We’re not winning. ;|
