Lawsuit seeks to get Gingrich on Va. ballot
Source: AP via CBS

A Virginia attorney and tea party activist is seeking to have Newt Gingrich's name placed on the state's Super Tuesday primary ballot.

Attorney Jonathon Moseley of Reston, Va., says he filed the suit Thursday in the Circuit Court of Richmond County. It contends that Gingrich met the requirement of filing 10,000 signatures and that many of those were improperly excluded.

fail to get signatures, blame "the system."

These people are so tiresome.
