Convicted felon Gary George files for Congress
Question of the Day
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Convicted felon and former state Sen. Gary George has enough signatures on his nomination papers to run for Congress in Milwaukee against fellow Democrat U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore.
George filed signatures Monday to get on the ballot to challenge Moore for the 4th Congressional District seat she's held since 2005. He needed to submit 1,000 valid signatures. An initial count by the Government Accountability Board on Tuesday gave George 754 signatures, but the number was later revised to 1,294.
George's campaign sent an email saying there were minor omissions that were not a significant problem and would be fixed.
The board was meeting on June 10 to certify candidates for the Aug. 12 primary.
Moore says she welcomes George, who was recalled from office in 2003, to the race.
