If this keeps up, Carl Lewis will still be in court after the general election.
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno yesterday ruled the Olympian cannot appear on New Jersey’s Senate ballot. This is nothing new from Guadagno, who, in her role as secretary of state, handed down the same ruling earlier this year.
Now that that’s over, Guadagno says Lewis does not qualify to appear on the general election ballot. Lewis’ lawyer has scheduled a hearing in U.S. District Court for Friday to appeal the latest ruling.
At issue is whether Lewis meets the four-year residency requirement to run for state Senate, since he’s lived and voted outside the state in recent years.
