(CNN) - Four candidates left off the Virginia Republican primary ballot joined Rick Perry Saturday in suing the state's board of elections over laws they say are "unconstitutional."
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum joined the lawsuit, originally filed Tuesday, challenging provisions that determine who can appear on the primary ballot.
All five candidates filing the lawsuit failed to qualify for the ballot.

“That is what is happening here.”
Want some cheese Mitt that whine?
We look like idiots.
“We look like idiots”. No we don’t. They look like the incompetent boobs they are .Oh the dog ate my signatures.
“GOOD!!! And good on Rick Perry for getting the ball rolling”!
Sorry , the ball already rolled. Bad on perry for not paying attention.
Newt should’ve verified every signature? He delegated. Stick it.
Not poor planning as much as unwillingness to bribe people for signatures (at least on Mitt’s part). Paul has a lot of crazies who support him.
This is a good thing. Applause all around.
Happy New Year, Windflier!
Fail, absolute fail. You ignore the facts. The Mittbots gamed the system and got caught. Whine on Mittbot, whine on.
Look at their accomplishments. Newt allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority (together the Reagan Revolution) which directly led the downfall of the Soviet Union, the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.
Romney, on the other hand, vehemently denied Ronald Reagan and aligned himself with Ted Kennedy and the left. Romney accomplished installing liberal big government programs, defended and promoted Roe v Wade and legalized abortion as settled law, advocated and implemented RomneyCare with its liberty killing government mandates against formerly free citizens and its taxpayer funded or subsidized and mandated abortion procedures. He ran and governed to the left of Ted Kennedy on the gay agenda resulting in gay marriage in Massachusetts. He appointed liberal judges and liberal appointees throughout his government. Under his leadership conservatism and the Republican party was all but destroyed in Massachusetts.
Romney is one evil liberal progressive. No way in hell will MittBots be allowed to support this abortionist, big government, socialist scumbag on FR!
Guess my message isnt clear enough. I have to keep repeating it and zotting would be MittBots.

Happy New Year to you too, Smooth!
Good will toward men. We’ll both still be here after the dust settles. I know you’re one of the good souls, who’s in the fight for the long haul.
In Freeperhood forever!
Heh.... things that make you go, "hmm...."
Their silence alone, is damning, wouldn't you say?
We'll be fine. Just don't let anyone know the secret handshake! :)
What century are you living in? ALL Federal Courts have electronic filing (ECF), available 24/7, except when pre-noticed as being down for maintenance. Isn’t the internet just amazing?
Further, at Thursday’s hearing, the judge suggested others join the suit. So they are following the judge’s advice, including those who didn’t even try to get on the ballot.
The AG intervention spoken of is with the state legislature, not the courts. If this suit proceeds, Cuccinelli’s Office has to defend the State Board of Elections for having done its duty according to the statute passed by the state legislature.
