Congressman Conyers facing ballot troubles

DETROIT (WKZO) -- After being sure he would be on the ballot for the Democratic primary just last week, long-time Detroit Congressman John Conyers appears to be in danger again of not being on.

The Detroit City Clerk's office ruled on Friday that two petition circulators were not properly registered to vote, and that tosses out between 300 and 400 signatures. That would mean Conyers is short of the one-thousand valid signatures needed to be on the primary ballot.

A final determination on the challenges to Conyers's petitions by Horace Sheffield will be issued on May 13th.
