OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Joe Sills' name has been removed from the ballot for Oklahoma governor after the election board determined his guilty plea disqualifies him from running.
The three-member board ruled unanimously on Monday to remove the independent candidate from the ballot.
Sills pleaded guilty to the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, a felony crime, in 2000. He failed to disclose this plea.
The board also removed a Republic state Senate candidate from Lawton who also pleaded guilty to crimes in Kansas.
