W.Va. Supreme Court of Appeals Reaffirms Decision in Upshur Sheriff Race

The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals upheld the Upshur County Circuit Court's decision regarding the contested sheriff's race that was made in September.

In case you don't know, runner-up David Taylor said winner Chief Deputy Mike Kelley was ineligible to run because of the Hatch Act.
 
That act says anyone that deals with federal money can't run for office.
 
The case was heard by the County Commission and Circuit Court before going to the Supreme Court.
 
The Supreme Court found that regardless of whether the Hatch Act applies to this situation, Taylor can't benefit from Kelley's disqualification.
 
The Upshur County Republican Executive Committee appointed David Coffman to replace Kelley on the ballot.
