Inmate won't get any W.Va. presidential delegates

Source: Charleston Gazette

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Although his 72,544 votes in Tuesday's presidential primary theoretically could have secured at least 13 delegates to the Democratic National Convention for Texas inmate Keith Judd, state party officials said Wednesday that won't happen.

Judd, an inmate serving a 210-month term at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, is not eligible to have delegates to the convention in Charlotte, N.C., because of procedural omissions, state Democratic Party Executive Director Derek Scarbro said Wednesday.

"It's a moot point because no one filed to be a delegate for him," Scarbro said.

Any Democrat wanting to be a delegate to the national convention had to file a statement of candidacy and a statement designing which presidential candidate he is supporting with the state Democratic Executive Committee by 5 p.m. on Election Day.

1. That sucks

All he had to do was get elected and then pardon himself.

Back to the drawing board...
