Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) won't appear on the Democratic primary ballot after failing to submit enough valid signatures, Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett said on Tuesday.
The decision means Conyers may have to run as a write-in candidate if he wants to keep a seat he's held for five decades.
Conyers's Democratic primary opponent, pastor Horace Sheffield III, challenged the validity of the incumbent's signatures. The clerk ruled that since two of his petition-gatherers weren't registered voters in Michigan, as required under state law, the signatures he obtained didn't count.
Conyers submitted 2,000 signatures, needing 1,000 valid ones. After the challenges, he had 592.
Conyers thought, being an elite democrat, he could get away with fake signatures. America is grateful that this loser will not be on a ballot.
This dried up ole dillweed should of been retired 20 years ago.
Hope he loses the seat and the new person is better.
This crooked bastard has been in Congress for forty years. I will bet the ranch he is on the ballot come August. He failed to qualify, but his name will be on the ballot. Laws do not apply to Democrat-Communists.
Sadly, Ronald, I'll bet you are correct---Somehow, someway, he will get on that ballot and probably will get "re-elected." It is not who votes that count; it is who counts the votes.
Because the republican rino's won't allow them to be enforced. Shame on both party's.
GOD is still with us.
I KNEW there is a God !!!
ALL THOSE COMMUNIST NAMES DIDN'T COUNT? NOT TO WORRY HIS WAR CHEST IS FULL AND LEAVING WITH HIM.
He will be on the ballot and whats more the sheeple will vote him back in.
They are a bunch of "dumb fks! Give em more dope and cheap booze and they will follow olblamea to the cliffs or the boxcars.
Trust me... We will do what we can up here to toss him out. He's junk...
