(CNN) – Former Olympic star Carl Lewis fails to meet residency requirements in New Jersey and is ineligible to run for the state Senate, Lt. Governor and Secretary of State Kim Guadagno decided Tuesday.
Lewis, a nine-time Olympic gold medal winner, wanted to run for the state Senate seat in the 8th Legislative District.
The lt governor is just another GOP crony.
Should Have asked Emmanuel for advice on how to get around these types of requirements.
why, you are not born in America either...well, tell news that we need Birther issue....we laugh our Tommy hurts...Tell to idiots like GOP thugs...it is a news....they may spin it some more time...till 2012....
Oh Oh! Maybe they remember 20 years ago when he botched the National Anthem in the Meadowlands
Sorry Carl, even if... You need to lose that stupid-looking diamond Bling in the ear, MY Politicians are Clean-Cut Businessmen, not YOU hahahahah...
But...Jersiers are sure dumb enough to vote you in, because you have some Money, so you MUST be good.
This is the same state which ignored its own laws to allow the Democrats to switch candidates when Bob Torricelli started to look like a loser. I guess we should consider this progress of a sort.
After obama was elected why not lewis the us government is a joke and I hate what is happening to our country!does anyone care or is it just me!I'm not talking about gas prices either we should have saw this coming years ago!
Or maybe he was paying California income taxes and voting in California until last year. If he was indeed a resident of New Jersey as he claims he owes them back taxes and should be arrested for voter fraud by voting in California.
Not eligible for the ballot? Why? I thought he was steroid free?
Chicago should leran! good for NJ, follow the rules..and don't let these clowns in
