    Republican Ron Paul says he doesn't want to be on the presidential ballot in Montana, adding that his name was put under the Constitution Party banner without his permission.
    However, Montana Secretary of State Brad Johnson says it appears that Paul's name will have to remain on the ballot anyway.
    The Montana Constitution Party put Paul's name on the ballot earlier this week, and at the time, Paul supporters said that they thought they had Paul's permission to do so.
    But Paul, who lost a bid for the GOP presidential nomination earlier this year, says in a letter to election officials that he never wanted to be on the ballot. He says the national Constitution
    Party candidate Chuck Baldwin should be on the ballot instead....





    Very confusing

    I would think it should be up to the election committee to make this right. Paul didn't ask to be on the ballot so they need to do something.

    That's exactly how I see it. I was very surprised to see his name there. If he didn't specifically ask to be there, this almost seems like vote tampering ?

    Fraud if you ask me... That mistake might tip the states votes and the 3 electorals might land in the wrong column.
