(David Ferrara of Las Vegas Review-Journal) – Meghan Anne Smith, who was disqualified in her bid for a Democratic candidate for the Assembly District 34 seat last year, was indicted on a perjury charge, prosecutors said Wednesday.
In her attempt to join the race for office, Smith also failed in her Supreme Court bid to have signs removed from polling places that informed voters about her ineligibility.
Republican Victoria Seaman, who won the seat, had challenged Smith’s candidacy after discovering Smith had purchased a home in the northwest Las Vegas district after she filed to run for office. Under state law, a candidate must live in a district for 30 days before filing for office.
District Judge Nancy Alf later ruled that Smith did not meet residency requirements.
