Vermont Secretary of State Will Put Rocky Anderson on the Ballot as the Justice Party Presidential Nominee

On September 4, the Vermont Secretary of State agreed to put Rocky Anderson on the ballot as the Justice Party presidential nominee. A Vermont superior court had put him on the ballot on August 6, but the Secretary of State had then asked the Vermont Supreme Court to stay that order. On August 27, the State Supreme Court had refused to stay the lower court order.

But at that point, the Secretary of State, who is a Democrat, still wouldn’t put Anderson on the ballot. He said the August 6 court order only meant that signatures Anderson had gathered before the June 14 statutory deadline could be used, whereas Anderson interpreted the court order to mean he was free to obtain more signatures during the period the court had set, the two-week period August 6-20. But on September 4, the Secretary of State changed his mind and agreed to interpret the court order in the same manner that Anderson interpreted it. It is conceivable, but far from certain, that this means that Jill Stein might also get on the ballot. Thanks to Cynthia Papermaster for this news.

    Dear Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos,
    is it fraud for you to seriously and willfully
    and intentionally conceal the results of the Primary Election and refuse to reveal to the
    registered voters of Vermont who won the Progressive Party Primary Election for U.S. Senate?

    Isn’t it peculiar that you are with-holding these results?

    All of the votes were write-in votes,
    and all of the voters are being disenfranchised
    as long as you conceal the results.

    How many Federal Laws are you violating?

    Please respond!
    Ms. Cris Ericson
    usmjp@aceweb.com
    Candidate for Governor and for U.S. Senate
    for the United States Marijuana Party
    and maybe
    also
    the winner of the Progressive Party Primary;
    who knows?

    Jim Condos knows.
