Republican Fite loses appeal on ballot removal

Posted By on Thu, Apr 28, 2011 at 10:36 AM

The Arkansas Supreme Court today dismissed Thomas Fite's appeal of removal from the election ballot as a Republican candidate for state representative for Crawford and Franklin County on account of a criminal conviction involving misuse of public money.

The court said Fite's appeal came too late, after the election, and made consideration of the issues he raised moot. The seat is now held by Rep. Leslee Post of Ozark, a Democrat.

The Supreme Court today also affirmed four lower court decisions in which children were removed from the homes of followers of evangelist Tony Alamo, now in prison for transporting minors across state lines for immoral purposes. They were removed for their safety.
