Fellow Hoosier blogger Thomas Cook from Blue Indiana may have an effect on the presidential election. In Indiana a presidential candidate has to get 500 signatures from each congressional district to qualify for the ballot. Thomas did some quick checking and noticed that McCain is 9 signatures short in one district. Republican Governor Mitch Daniels is the chair for McCain's campaign in Indiana.
From a source in the Democratic National Committee:
As astonishing as the McCain campaign’s incompetence may be, the audacity of its response is even worse. In order to avoid a major embarrassment, the McCain campaign did what Republicans typically do when confronted with their incompetence: they called in their cronies.
Despite the fact that the McCain campaign clearly failed to qualify for the ballot, Republican Attorney General Steve Carter and Republican Secretary of State Todd Rokita (who recently endorsed McCain) rubberstamped it anyway, trying to sneak McCain onto the ballot.
Thomas has filed a complaint with the Indiana Election Commission to challenge McCain's spot on the ballot. If he's successful, McCain won't be on the primary ballot on May 6.
