Jaeger: Term-Limit Petitions Are Still Insufficient


BISMARCK, N.D. (KVRR/AP) — A twenty-day correction period to make fixes by backers of a petition drive to term-limit North Dakota legislators is now over with no changes.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger says the petitions are still insufficient.

A letter submitted by attorneys hired by the term limits committee argues that there is no factual or legal basis to disqualify nearly 63% of the signatures submitted.

A review found the petitions were riddled with violations, including signatures that were “likely forged.”

Jaeger says he referred all violations of state law to Attorney General Drew Wrigley.
