John Conyers III Disqualification
Conyers III, a Detroit Democrat, sought to run as an independent after he was disqualified from the Aug. 7 primary election over problems with the signatures on his nominating petitions. He, however, tried to fight that decision in court and lost.
This time, Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett wrote to him to inform him he is not qualified to submit petitions as an unaffiliated candidate because he already submitted nominating petitions for a partisan primary for the same office earlier in 2018.
Under state law, Garrett explained, individuals may not file as an independent for an election held during the same calendar year that they filed for a partisan primary for the same office. Garrett noted in her July 19 letter that Conyers claimed on his petition filing receipt that he had not filed a partisan nominating petition or fee in the same calendar year.
The Michigan Bureau of Elections concurred with Garrett that Conyers III was ineligible to run as a no-party affiliation candidate, spokesman Fred Woodhams said.
Garrett spokeswoman Lisa Williams-Jackson said Conyers III may still run as a write-in candidate in either the primary or general elections. Conyers III did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
His father stepped down on December 2017, amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
The crowded Democratic primary included Conyers’ great-nephew, state Sen. Ian Conyers, former state Representative. Rashida Tlaib and Shanelle Jackson of Detroit, Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, state Sen. Coleman Young III of Detroit and Westland Mayor Bill Wild.
