'Not the White Man's bitch'
Woman sues to get 'Bitch' on ballot


A federal court has rejected a lawsuit filed by an independent candidate for the state Assembly in Wisconsin
who wants to use a racially charged phrase to describe herself on the ballot.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa said in the order filed Wednesday that Ieshuh Griffin's lawsuit must be
dismissed because it was a habeas corpus action and those require the person bringing it to be in custody.

Randa did not rule the merits of the lawsuit. Griffin is fighting a decision by the state Government
Accountability Board barring her from using the phrase "NOT the 'whiteman's bitch'" to describe herself on the ballot.

Here's the deal:  She's running as an independent and state law says independents
get to add five words under their name to get over that unfamiliarity hump.

So what's Wisconsin's problem?
Will that "harmful" language hurt the children who're voting?
