Obama Judge Allows Sleaze Bag On Ballot

This isn't surprising,
From Fox News:
A federal judge put Michigan Rep. John Conyers, one of the longest-serving Democrats in Congress, on the primary ballot Friday hours after state election officials declared him ineligible.
Earlier Friday, Conyers lost his appeal to get on the August primary ballot after state officials found problems with his nominating petitions.
Conyers needed 1,000 petition signatures to get a spot in the Democratic primary. But many petitions were thrown out because the people who gathered names weren't registered voters or listed a wrong registration address. That left him more than 400 short.
But Leitman's injunction said a Michigan law that puts strict requirements on petition circulators is similar to an Ohio law that was struck down as unconstitutional by a federal appeals court in 2008.
Leitman said the free speech rights of Conyers and the circulators were harmed, an argument pressed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan.
Free speech rights?  That is a bit of stretch considering that this law has been on the books for sometime.
If that is the case, why even the need for nominating papers?  Why not just put anybody who wants to run for office on the ballot?
But not surprising that this liberal judge is an Obama appointed judge who probably still takes his cues from Obama and his ilk.
