Dems File Suit To Knock Ethan Orr From Ballot

Posted By on Tue, Jun 10, 2014 at 4:14 PM

Attorney Jeff Rogers, representing Legislative District 9 voter Paul Hilts, has filed a lawsuit today to knock state Rep. Ethan Orr from the 2014 ballot.

Orr, a freshman Republican in a swing district that includes midtown Tucson and the Catalina Foothills, would be facing two Democrats, state Rep. Victoria Steele and political newcomer Randy Friese, in November if he remains on the ballot.

Rogers, a former chairman of the Pima County Democratic Party, alleges in his lawsuit that Orr did not collect enough signatures on his nominating petitions. According to his calculations, 123 people who signed the petitions do not live and are not registered to vote in LD9; 83 people are not registered to vote; six signatures come from people who signed the petitions more than once; 61 signatures come from people who are not registered Republicans; and 15 signatures are "illegible, incomplete or otherwise invalid."

A court hearing on the matter has been scheduled for June 18.

More details as we get them.
