Kentucky candidate remains on ballot despite ineligibility
FRANKFORT, Kentucky: Republican candidate Gail Powers has been ruled ineligible in Louisville's District 44 House race.
Last week, a Circuit Court Judge ruled that Powers' ineligibility is a result of an invalid signature found on her candidacy paperwork.
The individual's signature is invalid because they do not reside in the 44th District, a Kentucky requirement.
Powers plans to appeal this ruling, and says that she will continue to run as a qualified candidate in the interim. If Powers loses her appeal, her name will remain on the ballot, but votes in her favor will not count.
