UPDATE:Libertarian Candidate Jeff Amason Files Legal Action
Atlanta, Georgia – July 28, 2014
Jeff Amason and Amason for Liberty, Inc. filed today in Fulton County Superior Court seeking mandamus relief to compel the Georgia Secretary of State’s Election Division to place Jeff Amason’s name on the November ballot for Georgia House District 21. The Secretary of State’s office has previously provided documentation verifying that the Amason campaign submitted more valid signatures than needed to appear on the ballot. Currently, conflicting Georgia statutes have caused the Elections Division to deny ballot access to Jeff Amason based upon a notary clause; despite having gathered more than the required number of valid petition signatures by the July 8th deadline.
“As a Libertarian, I am committed to ensuring all Georgia voters are represented equally. I plan to fight this attempt to prevent the people from being heard by artificially restricting ballot access. This is another instance, in a long line of examples, where the will of the people has been subverted. Libertarians will always fight for what is right and will continue to promote the ideals that are the foundation of this nation” Jeff Amason stated.
Vote for Liberty.
