    Yes, and that is the point of the lawsuit, that such a law would be considered a violation of free speech. Not sure how much I agree with that without looking into it more, which if I get time later today(I am home now) I will do.

    So then, if that's the law, then he shouldn't be on the ballot.

    If the law is uncostitutional, then yes he should be. That is why the stay was issued, since if it does turn out the law is unconstitutional, then he is injured by not being on the ballot. I would recommend reading the ruling, then you will understand this. I at least scanned it.

    I've done a little searching and still can't find the actual ruling, but I do have the gist of it....So, this Federal Judge appointed by Obama, thinks that the Michigan law is unconstitutional, similar to the Ohio law that was overturned, but just amazing isn't it how the argument doesn't come up until it is a demo like Conyers that is hurt by it? I call Bull ****, and corruption....That ****hole Detroit loves this dirt bag so much they can keep him, and I hope they rot....*spits* This is why I left Michigan as fast as I could.

    The reverse side is that if the law is Constitutional and Conyers wins the election, then the other candidates were harmed, and the election results get overturned? Probably not.

    Unless I do not understand the Constitution, laws are Constitutional until proved otherwise. This one has not been proved otherwise. IFAK, it is not even made its way to the court system.

    Judge made two rulings. (1) The law might, maybe, could, be unconstitutional if it ever makes it to the SCOTUS. (2) It was all just a simple mistake based on the premise that this decades old group somehow did not the rules and did not know how to look them up.

    IMO, both rulings were wrong.

    And once again, this wasn't some gotcha surprise law that no one knew about. Conyers knew the requirement going in, as did every other candidate. EVERY other candidate on the ballot met the requirements, with Conyers being the exception. The judge should be disbarred for corruption.
