Oregon Gubernatorial Candidate Sues Oregon Secretary of State for Alleged Violation of Civil Rights.
Darren Karr, one of six former Republican Gubernatorial Candidates, on August 29th, 2014 filed a lawsuit as Plaintiff against the Oregon Secretary of State, naming current Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber and residing Secretary of State, Kate Brown in United States District Court for the District of Oregon.
The suit alleges that Karr’s Civil Rights were violated by not including him in the Oregon Voters’ Pamphlet, and the Secretary of State’s office was negligent, publishing inaccurate information, caused voter confusion and damaged his chance of winning the Republican Gubernatorial nomination.
Karr states, “the lawsuit was filed because my rights were violated.”
He went on to say, “Even worse, the rights of Oregonians were violated when the Secretary of State provided them inaccurate information through the Voters’ Pamphlet. The state and it’s agencies should be working for us, the middle class, not against us.”
The suit requests a trial by jury, restitution by the State and the Plaintiff to be placed on the November 4th 2014 ballot as an Independent for the position of Governor. Karr is asking the State of Oregon to be held accountable for omissions and mistakes during the 2014 Primary season.
