AG to ask feds for expedited review of bill that would impact Quelland
The author of a measure that seeks to prohibit people from running for office if they have outstanding elections-related fines will be asking the U.S. Department of Justice for an expedited review of the bill.
The measure, if enacted before the deadline to file candidate paperwork in this year’s elections, would impact former Rep. Doug Quelland, who has refused to pay a $31,000 Clean Elections fine.
Former Rep. Quelland says bill may be trying to influence election
Senators Feb. 27 unanimously advanced legislation to prevent candidates from running for office if they owe at least $1,000 in fines.
As approved, the measure prohibits election officers from accepting the nomination of a person who is facing unpaid fines, penalties, late fees or any administrative or civil judgments.
