Senate Bill 287 was signed into law. It says that if the candidate has ever been ultimately determined by a court of proper authority to be guilty of a misdemeanor involving embezzlement or a felony under the laws of this state or of the United States or who has entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere to such misdemeanor involving embezzlement or felony or who has been convicted of a crime in another state which would have been a misdemeanor involving embezzlement or a felony under the laws of this state or has entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere to such crime or at the time of filing the Declaration of Candidacy is named in an outstanding warrant for arrest for such an offense, in this or any other state, the candidate shall provide the following information on a form prescribed by the Secretary of the State Election Board:
1. The name of the offense;
2. The date of conviction or issuance of the outstanding warrant; and
3. The county and state of conviction or issuance of the outstanding warrant.
The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to an offense for which the candidate has received a pardon.
Keep in mind state law prohibits a person from filing for office for 15 years after such a conviction.
