This is just what we need:
The Mahoning county board of elections will meet Monday evening to decide whether or not approve additional signatures that would appear to be enough to place former Congressman Jim Traficant on the ballot.
Longtime Traficant supporter Linda Kovachik tells 21 News that there are now 27 more valid signatures. Mahoning County Board of Elections Director Tom McCabe and board member Mark Munroe confirmed that Traficant only needed 20 additional signatures and now it appears he has more than enough to have his name on the ballot.
Earlier on Friday, just over one dozen dedicated supporters of Jim Traficant rallied for “Justice for Jim” outside the Mahoning County Board of Elections.
The group is clearly determined to garner more support and make their case that they have more than enough valid signatures to get the ex-congressman’s name on the ballot as an independent for the 17th Congressional District.
At least he was always entertaining.
