The Kentucky Democratic Party is challenging his petition signatures in court. He has 164 signatures, but 34 live outside his district, 30 aren’t registered to vote and several don’t have valid addresses.
Lewis is attempting to challenge Jim Wayne for the 35th District State House seat – something he has no shot at winning.
It’s interesting to see candidates take any risk whatsoever with petition signatures. People should triple check signatures before running for office. Otherwise, they’re always going to run into problems.
