Judge Joseph M. James said the Harris campaign can fix the problems within five days.
Harris agreed to strike 1,475 of the 3,245 nominating signatures he submitted to get on the ballot. Candidates for mayor need to collect a minimum of 1,119 signatures, meaning Harris was left with enough valid signatures to continue. (Trib, Jeremy Boren)
Independent documentary filmmaker Chris Ivey, of East of Liberty and Ravenstahl's Stumble On The Hill fame, was among those who had their Harris nomination signatures challenged -- and was actually called upon to respond during today's proceedings. Ivey has since used his Facebook account to accuse Acklin of "Bush/Cheney tactics" and advise him that "it's on."
Statements are out there from both candidacies in news articles, press releases, tweets, Facebook updates and conference calls. It will continue this way until November.
