Kevorkian--Congress
(2008-07-08)
(wgvu) - Assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian
has collected enough signatures to be on the November ballot as a
congressional candidate.
Joe Rozell, director of elections for Oakland County, tells The
Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press for Tuesday stories that
Kevorkian had about 3,200 signatures. Kevorkian needed to collect
3,000.
The 80-year-old in March announced plans to run as an
independent for the 9th Congressional District seat held by
Republican Joe Knollenberg. Democrat Gary Peters, a former state
lottery commissioner, also is in the race.
Kevorkian was released from prison last year after serving eight
years for helping an Oakland County man with Lou Gehrig's disease
die in 1998.
