Florida bill to impose filing fees on write-in candidates

Ballot Access News:

Florida State Senator Fredericka Wilson (D-Miami) has introduced SB 230, to impose filing fees on declared write-in candidates. The Florida legislature does not convene until March, but bills are being introduced now. According to an assistant to Senator Wilson, the Wilson office did not know that courts have struck down filing fees for declared write-in candidates in other states (Maryland, West Virginia, and California). This information conceivably could mean that Senator Wilson will not advance the bill once the legislature convenes.

Following a record write-in vote for candidates such as Roy Moore, Loretta Nall and Charles Barkley in the 2006 Governor’s race, Alabama poll workers proposed charging write-in candidates to have their votes counted.

    I enjoy the poundings you get when you open yur fat mouth, Ross. I especially enjoy when you shut up after you’ve been made a fool of…time and time again. When will you learn to drop your stupidity, bitch?

    No, I am here first. Yes Joseph, they ahve said at some points that even I am smarter than you, and I am a proud statist and not as smart or as active in real-world politics as Ross is. Perhaps the problem with you Joseph is that you are not a real libertarian either, especially with your stupid idea to attack Israel and Palestine.

    And they say you’re smarter than me ha ha Then how come I believe in what they believe? And you do not?

    I usually ignore this buffoonish troll, but this is actually a somewhat interesting point.

    Ross is, in fact, either smarter than LJ, or smarter than the character LJ is portraying. And more mature, too.

    This has little to do with being right or wrong on the issues.

    Albert Einstein, who was a heck of a lot smarter than me, was a socialist. That does not mean socialists are correct.

    By a country mile, and then some.

    No, he’s not. He’s a bad parody of a libertarian.

    What’s there to be amazed about. It’s all quite simple.

    Republicans – Generally Good

    Democrats – Absolutely Evil

    The latter just a hair’s breath away from lite Authoritarianism of Mugabe, Idi Amin, and Pinochet. Not quite Pol Pot/Hitler/Stalin level, but increasingly moving in that direction.

    Thanks for coming to my defense! I didn’t even realize this was going on until right now.

    I don’t think I’ll be getting a stimulus, check, though, because I don’t have much of an income. And I’m not sure why you would talk about my not knowing much about economics here.

    What field of work are you in, LJ? You spend an awful lot of time making comments here.

    Eric Dondero – that is so stupid. I mean, I try to be nice, but that’s just dumb.

    Uhhh, Pinochet was installed by our CIA under Nixon, a republican.

    Now explain how McCain was somehow better than Obama. I couldn’t tell them apart.

    They are BOTH extreme authoritarians.

    PEACE
