Cuccinelli: Goode to go on Va. ballot

September 22, 2012

By David Sherfinski-The Washington Times

Constitution Party presidential candidate and former Rep. Virgil H. Goode of Virginia will be on the ballot Nov. 6 in his home state.

Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II announced Friday that his office finished an investigation of Mr. Goode’s petition signatures and that, though there may have been some irregularities, nothing he saw would prevent Mr. Goode’s certification on the ballot.

“We call them like we see them,” Mr. Cuccinelli, a Republican, said in a statement.

The Virginia State Board of Elections had requested the investigation from Mr. Cuccinelli’s office.

Candidates must amass 10,000 petition signatures, including 400 from each district, to qualify.

Some Republicans have fretted over the possibility of Mr. Goode, a conservative Democrat-turned-independent-turned-Republican from southside, siphoning votes away from Mitt Romney in the key swing state. Mr. Goode has maintained that he will take votes away from both Mr. Romney and President Obama, although recent polls have shown his candidacy having a marginal impact on the race.
