County board nixes 4 GOP candidates over paper clips
MURPHYSBORO – A Democrat-controlled election board in a southern Illinois county has kicked four Republican candidates off the November ballot for using paper clips instead of staples on their filings.
The Jackson County GOP calls the action by the county's election board undemocratic.
The appointed board is comprised of State's Attorney Mike Wepsiec (WEP'-sick), Sheriff Robert Burns and Clerk Larry Reinhardt. It disqualified GOP candidates for county board, circuit clerk, coroner and state's attorney.
