Iowa Supreme Court to Decide if Conviction for Drunk Driving Should Disqualify Candidate from Ballot

The Iowa Constitution says that persons convicted of “infamous crimes” cannot register to vote or run for state office, unless they are pardoned by the Governor. On April 9, the Iowa Supreme Court will hold arguments in Chiodo v The Section 43.24 Panel, 14-0553. The issue is whether Tony Bisignano should remain on the Democratic June primary ballot for State Senate, district 17.

Bisignano was convicted of second-offense drunk driving in January 2014. One of his opponents, Ned Chiodo, argues that therefore, Bisignano is not eligible to run and should be removed from the ballot. See this story.
