(Salt Lake City-AP) -- U-S Senator Bob Bennett is asking a judge to throw out a lawsuit from ex-convict Cody Judy, who ran against Bennett in the November election -- and got only 16 votes.
Lawyers for Bennett say Judy has no basis for alleging that election irregularities contributed to his loss by more than 600-thousand votes.
Judy says voters got no pencils at the polls to write his name on the ballot. He also complains voters weren't made aware he was a write-in candidate.
Judy filed suit earlier this month against Bennett and state elections officials.
Judy spent eight years in prison for using a purported bomb to try to get former LDS general authority Howard W. Hunter to declare him the true prophet of God. The drama unfolded in a public appearance at Brigham Young University in 1993.
