GOP Operative Recruits Homeless People

Steve May, a Republican operative and candidate for the Arizona State Legislature, has been openly recruiting "drifters and homeless people" onto the Green Party ballot, and admits that their candidacies may siphon support from Democratic candidates, the New York Times reports.

Said May: "Did I recruit candidates? Yes. Are they fake candidates? No way."

Arizona's Democratic Party is attempting to get the candidates removed from the ballot, and the Green Party has urged its supporters to steer clear of the rogue candidates.
