Nevada Nixes Nicknames

(Carson City, NV)  —  Two U.S. Senate candidates won’t be known by their nicknames on the ballot.  Secretary of State Ross Miller says Nancy “Occupy” Price and Eddie “WarNoMo” Hamilton’s nicknames have been removed from his agency’s website.  They violate a statute that bans names which indicate a political or social view.  The law was passed after the 1992 elections, when a Senate candidate listed himself in that year’s Democratic primary as “God Almighty.”
