Nutter supporter Judge Lynn denies independent mayoral candidate's routine ballot filing; Diop Olugbala to announce legal action

Democratic Party Judge James M Lynn has denied independent mayoral candidate Diop Olugbala to use his popular name on the November ballot. On Tuesday, September 27th at 11:30am, Olugbala will announce his planned actions in response to the discriminatory ruling.

“Judge Lynn's membership in the Democratic Party is conflict of interest in this ruling, which clearly attempts to sabotage my campaign. Judge Lynn, the democratic Party and Michael Nutter have done this as an underhanded attempt to deny the people a legitimate chance to vote for me, a people's candidate,” says Olugbala.

“We must question whether this name change sabotage is another attempt by the ruling elite of this city to maintain its monopoly of the political discussion revolving around public policy and elections. Is it an attempt to protect the policies of Stop and Frisk and curfews from the legitimate public criticisms I have been making of them thus far? Is it an attempt to cover up the clear and rampant corruption with which every part of the city's government is infested?”

Olugbala will speak to his constituents and to the media on Tuesday to clear up the confusion and address the political attack on his campaign.

Olugbala has filed a motion for reconsideration with Judge Lynn, requesting that he overturn his decision to deny the name change.
