Mr. Activist Judges

Rick Perry:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has filed an emergency order in federal court to require Virginia’s Board of Elections to place his name on the ballot for the state Republican presidential primary.

Perry failed last week to meet Virginia’s requirements that each candidate receive 10,000 signatures of registered voters, with 400 from each of its 11 congressional districts. On Tuesday, he filed a lawsuit against the State Board of Elections and Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Pat Mullins.

So the guy who has been running for president on a platform of reigning in “activist judges” wants to find a federal judge who will overturn the election laws created by the duly elected representatives of the people of Virginia.
