Candidate Files Injunction Against Vermont Media Outlets

Oct 12, 2012

An independent candidate for Vermont Governor is seeking an emergency injunction to allow her participation in debates.

Claiming potential manipulation of elections, Independent candidate Emily Peyton served the CBS and NBC television affiliates and Vermont’s largest newspaper Friday notifying them she is seeking an injunction to force them to allow her to participate in scheduled gubernatorial debates.  

WCAX, WPTZ and the Burlington Free Press have only scheduled the Republican and Democratic candidates.  

Peyton says the validity of the election would be in question if she is blocked from the debates, because the public would be unable to make a fully informed decision.
