Court keeps homeless man off the ballot




Daniel Fore, a homeless man, speaks at a news conference after a Cook County judge ruled that he could not run for a suburban village board seat because he doesn't have an address. His attorney, Joseph Jacobi, watches.


A homeless man's name cannot appear on the April 7 ballot for a Chicago suburb because he did not list a home address on his nominating papers, a court has ruled.

Attorneys for Daniel Fore said they will appeal the decision. According to the judge and attorneys on both sides, the decision marked the first time in the United States that a court ruled on a homeless person's residency and eligibility to run for office.

State election laws require a candidate to put "the street and number thereof, if any" on his or her statement of candidacy. Fore's attorneys maintain that "if any" gives someone without an address -- such as a homeless person -- the ability to seek office without having a permanent abode.

The judge disagreed, saying "if any" more likely refers to the rural route address system for people who live far from metropolitan areas where a street address and number are commonplace

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
