The more-than-slightly-nutty arguments of Kenya McKnight--one of which began with an invocation of the name of Allah--were definitively slapped down yesterday at approximately 10:39 PM, with word being sent by email to numerous recipients. The denial was worded as follows:
"After considering the written statements from the challengers, statements from all persons who wished to present relevant testimony on the matters, and after a hearing before this three-person panel of the Constitution Commission on April 25, 2009, we have decided not to sustain any of the challenges."
The three-person panel consisted of Fred Knutson, Sue Rego, and Mike Rothman. A complaint was not only filed by Kenya McKight, but similarly-worded complaints were filed by former JACC executive director Jerry Moore and attorney-slash-public figure Ben Myers. Moore and Myers appear (rather obviously) to be playing some kind of role in the stunted and uncertain campaign of Kenya McKnight, but their exact titles in the McKnight campaign--if any--are currently unknown.
One political observer said Kenya's arguments to the three-person panel basically boiled down to, "No fair, I wasn't READY!"
