On Wednesday, February 25th, the Legislative District Committee for Senate District 24 filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in Harrisonburg.
Here is the opening paragraph of the legal Complaint.
“This is a suit challenging the legality of Va. Code (1950), 24.2-509 (B), as amended, also known as the Incumbent Protection Act (“the Act”). As set forth herein, the Act infringes upon the defendant’s right of free association secured by the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.”
The Incumbent Protection Act is an unconstitutional law which distorts the election process. It is my firm belief that we will prevail in court and succeed in overturning this pernicious statute.
