HARRISBURG - Dallas Mayor Tim Carroll has been tossed off the Republican primary ballot in the 117th House District after a judge found he failed to disclose information on his candidate filing about other positions he holds.
Another contender in the race, Republican James May, was removed from the ballot by court order on Tuesday after he was faulted for filing incomplete election paperwork. In both cases, the court deemed the omissions to be "fatal defects" to the respective candidacies.
I hope they both appeal. If you read the story they should both have had a chance to amend the financial forms. It's not like they were trying to hide significant income. On the other hand, if you can't fill out the forms properly, what kind of state rep will you be?
