Green party kicked off the ballot in Texas

Judge rules Green Party can be kept off November ballot

Texas Green Party candidates can be kept off the November statewide ballot because the petitions that qualified the party were paid for with an illegal corporate contribution, a judge ruled Thursday.

Lawyers for the Greens said they planned to appeal directly to the Texas Supreme Court and hoped to get a ruling in time for a July 2 deadline for the party to deliver the names of its candidates to the Texas Secretary of State.
