Man who knocked LP off Ohio ballot countersues

Ohio voter seeks sanctions for Libertarian Earl - Julie Carr Smyth, Associated Press:

November 24, 2014 - "An Ohio voter who was sued over his role in disqualifying a Libertarian gubernatorial candidate from fall ballots wants the politician, his lawyers and party leaders sanctioned for taking their case too far.

"Greg Felsoci (fehl-SOH'-see) filed his request against candidate Charlie Earl in federal court Monday.

"He contends Earl, two Libertarian Party leaders and their two lawyers insist on pursuing their claims against Felsoci despite a lack of evidence and even after the election season has ended. Felsoci says that's needlessly increasing his legal bills.

"Earl's lawyer, Mark Brown, said they'll respond through the court.

"Earl's third-party candidacy against Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) has been politically charged. Testimony revealed Democrats worked to qualify Earl for the ballot, while a GOP consultant underwrote the successful challenge to Earl's petitions."
