A woman has filed a lawsuit to stop the US presidential election from holding this coming Tuesday.
Louise K. Nolley of Buffalo, New York contends that neither republican candidate Donald Trump nor his democrat counterpart Hillary Clinton is suitably qualified for the office.
She requests the election be postponed until such time as more worthy candidates can be drafted to run.
“Neither of the candidates running for the Presidential seat shows that they can handle the position,” her lawsuit states, adding that “the character of both candidates falls far below” the standards needed.
Nolley said she is hopeful that President Barack Obama can be persuaded to remain in office, possibly for a third full term. However, this would be a violation of the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution that limits presidents to only two terms.
The 62-year-old filed the lawsuit on Tuesday, and is said to be recovering from heroin addiction with a lengthy arrest and prison record. As a result, she has not been able to vote for president her entire adult life, until now.
“This is the first time I’ll ever get a chance to vote, and I just wanted it to mean something for me and other people who really need a leader,” she said. “So I really want to make a difference and do something different.”
Nolley vowed not to vote for any presidential candidate if her lawsuit fails.
