Braxton out

Young Philly Politics reports that the PA Supreme Court has officially removed John Braxton, a progressive candidate, from the Democratic roster of Philadelphia City Controller primary contenders. Inquirer columnist Tom Ferrick recently argued that this case, involving a candidate that he likes, is a critical test of the state's dedication to its own disclosure laws. So I guess that "the people won" here, even though the political spectrum may be that much more poorly represented in this race.

Update: here are the official news stories in Wednesday's editions of the Daily News and the Inquirer. Some speculation about whether Braxton will try to run as an independent, but it seems unlikely to work.
