Oh man. I don’t mean to pile on poor Aaron Dixon… but Richard Pope — HA’s resident expert on quixotic election campaigns — has searched through court records and posted his findings in the comment threads.
Let’s just say that if this were a real candidate representing a real party, we would expect him to announce his withdrawal momentarily.
I’ve got nothing against Dixon. People who know him tell me he’s a great guy and a dedicated community activist.
What he isn’t, is a viable candidate for U.S. Senate, and I have absolutely no compassion for those in the Green Party who put him out there for public scrutiny, apparently without any vetting process whatsoever.
The Greens say they want to become a major party. Well start acting like one.
Richard’s got more on Dixon’s court records.
