Rep Duncan Hunter (NOT Hines!) can NOT be removed from the ballot & replaced. Too late!

California secretary of State: GOP lawmaker can't be removed from ballot after getting indicted

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) will remain on the ballot in California's 50th Congressional District in November, despite being charged Tuesday with misusing at least $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses.

"There exists no process in California Elections Code for Duncan Hunter to remove his name from the November ballot," Sam Mahood, a spokesman for California's Secretary of State, told The Hill in a statement.

Mahood noted that Hunter was one of the top-two vote getters in the district's June primary. He added that there can be no write-in candidates for the November election.

Bwahahahahaha! Sometimes things come full circle. The trifecta today! Cohen...Manafort...Duncan. The cherry on top is that Duncan's indictment opens an opportunity in San Diego County, CA.

Today was a very good day.

5. LOL LOL! I was reminding myself while typing NOT to put Hines...but I guess that backfired.



Representative Betty Crocker is dismayed that Rep Hines was indicted!

11. That's great... let's hope none of them googles "2002 NJ Senate election" where

The NJ Democratic party had Bob Toricelli facing similar issues, dropped out on Sept 30th, and despite there being no mechanism to replace him, and he was replaced with Frank Lautenberg.

13. Bummer. You know if there's a way to do it, the Repubs will do it.

I read up on that Toricelli case. It did take a NJ S.Ct. to allow the substitution. So there's that.

15. I'm not saying there's a guarantee that this will happen in CA, but it's happened before, so I

wouldn't be sure it couldn't happen again. This was appealed by the republicans to the USSC back in then, but they didn't hear the case.
