During the post-election court challenge following the 2010 general election, Randy Ruedrich acting as State PartyChair, submitted a sworn affidavit of dubious veracity on behalf of the write-in candidate to aid and abet the case against theRepublican nominee. This action was undertaken a full month before the election was certified, and while the outcome wasstill uncertain.
