Brian Vaeth filing motion to remain on ballot


Last week, Brian Vaeth was disqualified from running for Governor and he said he planned to appeal that decision. He later blamed a complaint from another Republican running for Governor for getting him removed from the ballot.

Today, Vaeth is filing a motion against Linda Lamone of the State Board of Elections in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. He is asking for a preliminary injunction and a temporary restraining order in his motion, which he is filing pro se.

Here’s the conclusion from Vaeth’s filing:

For the reasons presented in this motion and accompanying memorandum of law, plaintiff demands that this Court to rule that the provision found in Article II,§ 5 of the Maryland Constitution is unconstitutional under Article I of the Maryland Declaration of Rights and order the defendant to place his name on the ballot, as directed by law.

Vaeth’s complete filing is below.
