Independent Presidential Candidate Jade Simmons Takes on Texas & Indiana for Candidate Suppression

eTradeWire News/10589243
Jade Simmons takes legal action & challenges attempts to block her candidacy in both Texas & Indiana

HOUSTON - eTradeWire -- At the beginning of the year, Houston, TX resident and 2020 Independent Presidential Candidate, Jade Simmons, launched an unexpected independent run for President of the United States with her campaign Operation Restoration 2020. Simmons and her team have spent the last many months jumping through the many hoops that independent candidates have to jump through, in addition to addressing the challenges presented by Covid-19. Each state has their own set of rules, guidelines, and requirements in order to file and register to run in that particular state. Some are as simple as paying a dollar amount, but most require petition signatures from registered voters in the state, as well as a slew of paperwork with extremely intricate steps and instructions. They definitely don't make it easy on independent or third party candidates wanting to run.

In Texas and Indiana (and as with all states), Jade and the Operation Restoration team were diligent to meet deadlines and requirements but were denied in both states due to suspicious circumstances. In Texas, the paperwork was missing a birthdate, but even when they provided the birthdate quickly after, it was still denied. In Indiana, they claim that they didn't get the paperwork in time, even though there was confirmation of the delivery date and time. Simmons is taking legal action and is in the process of challenging these attempts to block her candidacy. While Texas and Indiana both denied us, there have been many other states that have been extremely flexible and accommodating, even in worse circumstances.
