Babette Josephs Booted from Ballot in State Rep Race

Babette Josephs won’t be facing Brian Sims in the race for State Rep in Center City’s 182nd district.

The path is now clear for a Brian Sims re-election. Babette Josephs was kicked off the ballot this morning, per the Daily News. A petitioner allegedly forged signatures of at least two people, including Philadelphia blogger Atrios. Of course, that’s not why she was kicked off the ballot:

Democracy. in. action. Doesn’t it just make you proud to be an American?
