Complaint against Deschene’s candidacy not filed in time

An attempt by a group of Navajos as well as unsuccessful candidates for president to get Chris Deschene removed from the general election ballot has failed.

Officials for the Navajo Nation Office of Hearings and Appeals said Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2014,  that all of the grievances filed against Deschene for not being able to speak Navajo fluently have been dismissed for not being filed in a timely manner.
