On Tuesday, a judge ruled that only one of the signature gatherers working for the Doug Lamborn congressional campaign was clearly not a resident of Colorado. Even with those signatures invalidated, Lamborn had enough signatures to remain on the ballot.

The plaintiffs plan to appeal to the Colorado Supreme Court.
We have some key guests on the show on Wednesday to talk about this:
7:47 AM: Michael Francisco is the lead attorney for the plaintiffs.
8:06 AM: Walker Stapleton, candidate for governor, had submitted enough signatures to qualify for the ballot but asked the Secretary of State to withdraw them and said he would go through the assembly this weekend to try to qualify.
8:47 AM: Doug Robinson, candidate for governor, found one of the signature gatherers who was not legally permitted to be performing that function.
Another fascinating guest on a very different topic: The ongoing battle between Israel and the Palestinians, and the strategic situation regarding Syria from Israel's perspective:
At 7:06 AM Prof. Mordechai Kedar is an authority on Islam, Islamic & Arab culture, the Arabs of Israel, Arab media & Arab political debate. He is fluent in Arabic & has been interviewed on Arab TV. Prof. Kedar served in Intelligence in the Israel Defence Forces for 25 years & retired as a colonel. He is a Prof. at Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv where he teaches Islamic studies & the politics of the Arab world.
Here are some highlights of Mark Zuckerberg's interminable testimony at the US Senate yesterday. What's interesting is how -- like all large companies -- there are regulations that Facebook would actually welcome, not least because regulations tend to stifle competition when the big guys help design them.
Will he or won't he?
