Many of them lost their homes and for almost a week had no ability to communicate outside the area. We will be helping to raise money for our members who lost so much.

Reform Party Presidential Candidate Roque De Le Fuente has joined with Green Party nominee Jill Stein to file a lawsuit over Oklahoma ballot access laws in federal court. This lawsuit sites “an unnecessarily early petition filing deadline, and unnecessarily high petition signature requirement”.
Oklahoma is notorious for keeping minor parties off the ballot. It takes 25,000 valid petition signatures for a candidate to receive ballot access. These signatures must be turned in by July 15th. The last time a minor party candidate achieved ballot access was in 2000, when Pat Buchanan ran on the Reform Party line. The last time that an independent was balloted in Oklahoma was Ross Perot in the1992.
