Perry only submitted 6 thousand signatures to VA Board of Elections

with one comment

An interesting note from the Federal Court Challenge filed by the Rick Perry campaign. Perry’s team submitted an 18 page suit today asking for a preliminary and permanant injunction.

You can see their entire challenge here.

When the Perry campaign submitted their petitions they informed the Board of Elections that they had collected more than 11 thousand signatures. As the certification process started it became clear that they were nowhere near that number. Sources inside the room where the signatures were being counted told me that the Perry campaign had truly submitted somewhere between 4 to 6 thousand signatures.

In paragraph 18 of his challenge, Perry’s attorney states the following: 

“On December 22, 2011 the plantiff submitted to the board over 6,000 signatures from qualified Virginia voters.”  -Perry Federal Legal Challenge to Virginia Ballot Process 

It appears the Perry campaign claim told the Virginia Board of Elections something different that what was actually the case.
