Democrats Sue to Keep GOP Congressman Accused of Sexual Harassment on Ballot

On Wednesday, Texas Democrats fight to keep a Republican on the ballot. The local GOP officially withdrew Rep. Blake Farenthold‘s from the primary because he won’t seek election amidst a sexual harassment scandal, but local Dems said they pulled his name after the deadline.

“Texas Democrats will not stand idle while Republicans rig the ballot,” Dems said in a statement obtained by the Austin-American Statesman. “Only voters have the power to choose who leads our state and nation, not politicians and party officers in backroom decisions. Last we checked, this was Texas not Russia.” They said that “This is about protecting democracy, not Republican Blake Farenthold’s vile actions. Farenthold has no business serving in public office, but the primary ballot is set and he failed to withdraw.”
