California Legislative Candidate Sues to Validate Declaration of Candidacy That had been Faxed

On March 18, John Mirisch sued the California Secretary of State for rejecting his declaration of candidacy. He is running for State Senate, 26th district. His paperwork was rejected because he had faxed it, although a few days later he supplemented the filing with an original document. Mirisch is a Republican and the Mayor of Beverly Hills. If he doesn’t get on the ballot, there will be no Republican in that race. The case is Mirisch v Bowen, 34-2014-80001790, Sacramento Superior Court. See this story.
