You may also want to mention [in your letter] that the Elections Division “lost” the timely filing for Chuck Baldwin and would have excluded him from the ballot if we did not have proof they received the filing.

Bob Barr brought suit to keep them off the ballot in Texas but biased Texas judges allowed them to remain on the ballot.
