Challenge raised over NV Tea Party candidate

Associated Press

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – Legal challenges are being raised over Scott Ashjian’s bid for the U.S. Senate as a Nevada Tea Party candidate.

The Independent American Party and the group Anger is Brewing, an affiliate of the national tea party movement, say they will file a lawsuit in Carson City claiming Ashjian filed as a candidate before registering to vote as a Nevada Tea Party member.

Tim Fasano, a Senate candidate with the Independent American Party, argues Ashjian violated the oath on his declaration of candidacy by claiming to be a Nevada Tea Party member.
