Pulliam For President Campaign Files Lawsuit Against California Secretary Of State
The Californer/10271529

The Pulliam for President Campaign has filed a legal challenge against the California Secretary of State for the alleged unlawful rejection of Alander Pulliam's presidential candidacy submission, demanding reinstatement and damages.

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- Today, the Pulliam for President Campaign announces a lawsuit filed against the California Secretary of State, alleging the wrongful dismissal of independent presidential candidate Alander Lee Pulliam Jr.'s Statement of Candidacy that was timely submitted for the 2024 presidential election. After submitting his official paperwork on February 7, 2024, the Pulliam campaign has encountered contradictory claims regarding its delivery date from the Secretary of State's office, leading to this high-profile legal dispute over a candidate's right to participate in the electoral process.

MR. Pulliam's campaign stresses the importance of following the rule of law and maintaining the integrity of the election process. The campaign has compiled evidence confirming the February 7 submission, which complies entirely with California election law, yet their candidate's registration was called into question due to purportedly being received on February 14, 2024. The office of the Secretary of State, asking for proof of the initial delivery date and claiming that the evidence would be reviewed internally, has led to this unprecedented legal action.
