Wisconsin Independent Candidate Files Federal Lawsuit Over Denial of Her Ballot Label

Ballot Access News:

On July 22, independent candidate Ieshuh Griffin filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee, over the state elections office refusal to print her partisan label on the November ballot. She is running for Assembly, 10th district, and wants “Not the ‘whiteman’s bitch’ ” on the ballot. The state elections office won’t print that. The law says independent candidates can choose up to five words to describe their political principle.

The case is Griffin v Government Accountability Board, 10-cv-617. It has been assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Randa.

    Too bad for her. Racism, from anyone, directed towards anyone, cannot be tolerated.

    It’s not racist. It’s just uneuphemistic.

    I think the the name Nobody’s B****, would have gain her more support on election day.
    This shows the short sightedness of the politicians that they did not write the law to specifically ban the use of certain words that might be offensive.
