Abortion foe Randall Terry wants court input on ballot, after Dems say he’s not a bona fide member of the party

March 23, 2012


— Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry says he'll go to court to try to get his name on the ballot in the Kansas Democratic presidential caucus.

The Kansas Democratic Party determined this week that Terry is not a bona fide Democrat and won't be awarded any delegates from the party's April 14 Kansas caucuses

The Wichita Eagle reported Friday that Terry said keeping him off the ballot is a violation of the Constitution.

Democratic Party attorney Joe Sandler said Terry also failed to meet two mandatory deadlines, one for naming his state representative and another for filing a plan to encourage participation in the caucus by potential delegates.

Terry said the deadlines he missed were not meaningful because he was planning to act as his own representative in Kansas.

I'm slow today - stayed up late watching basketball... What would be the benefit to Terry and his cause to be on the Democratic Ballot?

Very simple, he could put forth his agenda and show the faults Obama's policies.

If they own both parties, they get their way.

Perhaps the Dems don't want to be associated with a terrorist.

They already associate with far worse. LOL

How could he possibly think he would get votes? But then again, I'm expecting rational thought - and that makes me the dumb one today.

The rational thought was stated above. He doesn't need votes, just his message.

Then instead of playing games, he should run for office within his own party, right? I don't quite understand what you were trying to say here: and show the faults Obama's policies.

Wichita is a very strange city. Why are so many of our nuts from their? Is it because they don't fluoridate their municipal water there?

I thought he delivered his message via armed messengers who shoot doctors during church service.

If Democrat Fred Phelps can get as much as 31% of the votes from Democrats in a statewide primary, why not this guy.

Defixione 6 years ago

I would be willing to bet those votes did not come from Democrats.

JayhawkFan1985 6 years ago

As I recall, he never got more than 1-2%.

Didn't the republicans keep Colbert off the ballot in several states?

Only one, and it was the dems in '08. This time around, he never actually tried to get on a ballot.
