Dems Move to Kick Darcy Off of Mayoral Ballot

Posted By on Wed, Jun 15, 2011 at 2:57 PM

Local Democratic organizer Sam Almy is looking to get independent mayoral candidate Pat Darcy kicked off the ballot.

In his lawsuit, Almy—represented by local attorney William Walker, the same lawyer who is representing Luke Knipe, the local Democratic activist suing to get "Democrat" Marshall Home kicked off—notes that Darcy filed 3,104 signatures to get on the ballot, while he needed 2,596 valid ones.

However, the suit claims a number of the sigs had issues:

A. Two hundred and thirty three (233) signatures are of persons who donot live in the City of Tucson and are not registered in the City ofTucson, A.R.S. §16-321(B);

B. Two hundred and seventy nine (279) additional signatures are people who are not registered in the City of Tucson, even if the address appears to be within the City of Tucson, A.R.S. §16-321(B);

C. Two hundred and fifty three (253) signatures represent persons whose listed address on the petitions is not the address at which they are registered to vote. It is unclear whether these voters are indeed registered to vote within the City of Tucson and are eligible electors to sign petitions within the City of Tucson, A.R.S. §16-351(E)

D. One hundred and forty five (145) signatures are persons who have previously signed the petition of another mayoral candidate, A.R.S.§16-321(C) and 341(C); see also Exhibits 6 -9; and,

E. One signature contains an invalid date.
