Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr is taking Oklahoma to court, as the Oklahoman reports:
Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr will go to federal court in an effort to get on Oklahoma's election ballot this year, he said today.
Barr, a former Republican congressman, failed to obtain the minimum 43,913 signatures needed to qualify for the Oklahoma ballot as an independent candidate for president.
Richard Winger offers some context as to why Barr views the signature requirement as unreasonable:
Oklahoma lets any independent candidate on the November ballot with no petition whatsoever, unless the candidate is running for president. Yet Oklahoma requires 43,913 for an independent presidential candidate, or for the presidential nominee of an unqualified party.
