MADISON, Wis. 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.

Ieshuh. Haa haa haa
Not a serious candidate either!!!!
I like it and I can think of some descriptions for many others.

And if she runs and loses, I’m sure a suit will be filed charging racism.
Anybody else sick of this crap?
Normally I’m disgusted by people like her but in this case, I can’t help but chuckle . . .
I'm sure that was already in the works months ago.
Who in heck advised her to bring this as a habeas corpus petition. Looks like she had ‘a fool as a lawyer’ for sure.
Must be a n-—— b—— then
