Frazier Glenn Miller, the white supremacist whose candidacy for the Seventh District Congressional seat currently held by Republican Roy Blunt was rejected by the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian parties, has filed a lawsuit against Secretary of State Robin Carnahan asking that he be placed on the August ballot as a Democrat. News of the lawsuit is featured in an article in today's Springfield News-Leader.
If successful, Miller would join a crowded Democratic primary field that includes Ron Lapham of Bolivar, Charles Christup of Cape Fair, and director of "Phone Sex Grandma" and the upcoming "Son of a Stripper" Jack Truman of Lamar. If Miller is unsuccessful he will likely file as an independent in the November general election.
Blunt also has opposition in the Republican primary from transgender candidate Mitchell "Midge" Potts, Clendon Kinder of Joplin, and Bernard F. Kennetz, Jr. of Nixa. Kennetz filed on Tuesday.
Kevin Craig, Powersite, was the only Libertarian candidate to file before Tuesday's deadline.
