According to documents obtained by the Barr campaign, neither John McCain nor Barack Obama complied with Texas Election Code 192.031, which requires that filings must be submitted "before 5 p.m. of the 70th day before presidential Election Day," listing the "names of the party's nominees for president and vice-president."
Some websites are reporting that the Tex. Secretary of State somehow ended up eventually 'finding' the paperwork after the deadline. Bob Barr is threatening to sue, but I'd wager that the law will be changed retroactively by the state gov't.
Do you think there is a double standard?
