Fite request turned down

The Arkansas Supreme Court today rejected Tommy Fite's appeal of Judge Collins Kilgore's ruling that Fite wasn't eligible to run for state representative District 83 in Franklin and Crawford counties because of a 1984 federal misdemeanor conviction.

The appeal was dismissed without prejudice, which leaves an appeal avenue open on the eligibility issue. Kilgore has ordered that votes not be counted, but there should be a procedure for the election commission to preserve the ballots while an appeal pends.
