Texas Supreme Court ruling puts 3 Green Party candidates back on November ballot

he Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the secretary of state to “immediately take all necessary actions” to put three Green Party candidates back on November ballots.

The candidates had been removed for ineligibility after the Texas Democratic Party and some of its candidates sued because some Greens hadn't paid filing fees.

Last month, the 3rd Court of Appeals sided with the Democrats and ordered the Green Party to declare that its candidates — David B. Collins, running for U.S. Senate; Katija “Kat” Gruene, running for Railroad Commission; and Tommy Wakely, running for Congressional District 21 — were ineligible. District 21 includes parts of northern San Antonio and a swath of the Hill Country.

The fees were newly charged to third parties this year after legislators last year passed a law extending the requirement to them; third parties have sued over the law in still-pending cases.

The Supreme Court did not explain its order Tuesday but said it would issue an opinion soon.

1. It really looks like the Greens were late applying to get on the ballot in MT, WI and TX on purpose

by forcing the delay of the printing of ballots and suppress voter turnout in those states by making it harder to mail in ballots on time.
