Ninth Circuit Will Decide Constitutionality of California Residency Requirement for Petition Circulators

Published on November 16, 2012, by in General.

The lawsuit Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County v Bowen, 11-55316, will be decided by the Ninth Circuit, probably in the next few months. The issue is the California law that requires petition circulators to live in the district of the candidate whose petition they are circulating. The state acknowledges that the law is unconstitutional, but says the plaintiffs don’t have standing. On August 21, 2012, the Ninth Circuit had sent this case to mediation, but mediation has failed, so the case returns to the Ninth Circuit.

    Even aliens from another universe are covered by the free speech part of the First Amendment. “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech” applies to aliens from other worlds.

    See the book -
    Sources of Our Liberties edited by Richard L. Perry (1959, American Bar Assn — BEFORE the appointed robot party hacks in SCOTUS went *politically correct* NUTS in the 1960s).

    Candidate/issue petitions in REAL elections have ZERO to do with the 1st Amdt petitions.

    i.e. one more PERVERSION by SCOTUS for many decades — i.e. esp. since 1968 in Williams v. Rhodes.

    Too many layers of *politically correct* PERVERSIONS by SCOTUS to count since 1789.
