Four candidates recertified at hearing

GREENWOOD, SC – In yet another unexpected turn in the 2012 election season, Judge Howard King ordered four candidates recertified for the November general election.

There has been much confusion in the wake of two decisions issued by the State Supreme Court regarding the manner in which candidates across the state filed for office. Wednesday’s decision at the Greenwood County Courthouse concerning candidates that filed in Greenwood County did little to clear the air.

Judge Howard King of Sumter ruled that four candidates – Angie Woodhurst, a Republican candidate for Clerk of Court, Shannon Riley, a Republican candidate for State House of Representatives District 13, Felicia Moton, a Democratic candidate form Clerk of Court, and Bob Fisher, a Republican candidate for County Council District 7 – were to be recertified based on the fact that they attempted to file a paper copy of their Statement of Economic Interest.

Judge King also ordered three other candidates – Marcia Kelley-Clark, a Democratic candidate for Coroner, Sonny Cox, a Republican candidate for Coroner, and Steve Brown, a Republican candidate for County Council District 5 – be disqualified since they only brought a printout with the confirmation number for their online filing of the SEI.

All of the disqualified candidates have filed to run as petition candidates. Steve Brown and Sonny Cox have had their signatures verified by the Greenwood County Office of Elections and Voter Registration. Marcia Kelley-Clark is expected to have a sufficient amount of signatures also.

Three of the four candidates who were recertified – Fisher, Woodhurst and Moton – filed to run as petition candidates. Only Moton’s petition had not been verified, though she was expected to have the required amount of signatures.

An official order from the judge is expected to be filed within 24 hours.
