Lincoln County GOP Denies Filing Fee

In the trend of county committees vetting candidates… the Lincoln County Republican Central Committee members voted to reject Democrat Leah Wommack Chaney’s filing fee – in an effort to keep the democrat off the Republican ballot for Prosecuting Attorney this August. In a letter written to Lincoln County Clerk Crystal Hall, the Republican Central Committee gave notice on March 28th, that the committee has voted to refuse the filing fee of Mrs. Chaney. Bedford Township Republican Committeewoman Alexandra Salsman said this of the decision: “We welcome a genuine change of heart from anyone. But Mrs. Chaney established her re-election committee as a Democrat, and has been raising money for the past six months as a Democrat, and only switched parties the last day possible, in order to appear on the Republican ballot.”
