In Hattiesburg Mayoral Challenge, Ware's More Definitive Statement Shows Some Interesting Tactics

Judge William Coleman, the special judge appointed in the Ware v. DuPree election challenge in Hattiesburg ordered the Ware camp to provide a more detailed statement of its election issues.  On Monday, Ware filed his More Definite Statement.

Among the more interesting details of Ware’s pleading is his contention that the ballot of Kathryn Barker, the wife of Rep. Toby Barker (R-Hattiesburg), a vocal Ware supporter, should be thrown out.  It seems that Ware is willing to toss aside ballots by his own likely supporters in order to make his case.

Ware is also looking to strike the vote of General Jeff Hammond (the other highlighted name below), the outgoing athletic director at Southern Miss.
