Lawsuit claims Don Shooter not eligible to run for LD 13 seat

Rep. Don Shooter is pictured in February, 2018, as he told his colleagues in the state House that although he has “done stupid things,” they should allow him to remain a member of the House. They did not agree, voting 56-3 for his expulsion. Now Brent Backus, a Republican contender for state Senate, is trying to short-circuit Shooter's bid for re-election to the Legislature. In legal papers filed in Phoenix Friday, Backus contends that Shooter isn’t legally eligible to run. (Howard Fischer/Capitol Media Services, file)
