Today we remember the Purpura v. Obama ballot objection, born April 5, 2012, in New Jersey and declared terminally ill by Administrative Law Judge Jeff Masin a mere 5 days later. The suit was ill-conceived and born with fatal defects that could not be corrected.
The Purpura lawsuit family representative Mario Apuzzo has sought a second opinion in the case and will be meeting with specialist doctors (juris) Fisher, Baxter and Carchman today. We anticipate bad news and are ready to offer our sympathies to the loved ones during this trying time. In this situation the grieving process may be stymied at the stage of denial and that always makes things more difficult.
Dropping out of allegorical mode, I note that while we haven’t seen the briefs filed by attorneys for Obama and the NJ Secretary of State, they were filed and Apuzzo has filed an answer yesterday, which appears following and from which we might infer some of what the opposition briefs addressed.
