New Jersey Government Files Brief in Case on Whether Partisan Primaries are Constitutional

On July 28, attorneys for New Jersey filed this brief in Balsam v Guadagno, U.S. District Court, 14-1388. The lawsuit was filed by some voters who argue that states cannot pay for partisan primaries. The state brief says the plaintiffs don’t have standing, and that even if they did, nothing in the U.S. Constitution prevents states from paying for partisan primaries. The state’s brief doesn’t deal with the point that, arguably, the New Jersey Constitution prohibits taxpayer money from being used for partisan primaries. But, a comprehensive case based on that point would be better off being filed in state court in any event.

    The MORONS in CA Dem – Jones case totally screwed up the PUBLIC primary stuff –

    ALL or SOME PUBLIC voters nominate PUBLIC candidates for PUBLIC offices according to PUBLIC laws — and NOT the schemes of any party hack faction of the voters.

    i.e. in the SOME case – the robot party hack candidates getting votes from voters in other parties and/or independent voters.

    i.e. the robot party hacks in a party are NOT independent empires with any power to dictate election laws.

    i.e. the CA Dem-Jones case is one more classic SCOTUS piece of UN-constitutional J-U-N-K.

    NO primaries.
