Ind. Courts - Libertarian files federal suit challenging Indiana election laws

Page Gable of the Shelby News had a very long story this weekend that began:

A man who has run numerous times for political office now finds himself in arguably the greatest political battle of his career.

Andrew Horning, who has run for office both on state and federal levels in the past as a Libertarian and Republican, recently filed a lawsuit in United States District Court Southern District of Indiana Terre Haute Division against the State of Indiana, including the secretary of state, Indiana Election Commission, the members of the Indiana General Assembly and the governor.

Horning alleges there are violations of both the Indiana and federal constitutions that are harming him and others.

"I'm not sure why nobody brought this up decades ago when the worst infractions became code. But I'm bringing suit now only because it's not only apparent that both major political parties have sold out, but also that most people now know it. While I know that most people don't know that the 'two-party system' is actually an illegal contrivance, I do know that most people are pretty sick of it," Horning told The Shelbyville News.
