Update: Carlos Allen tossed off Democratic primary ballot


Carlos Allen, 2010. (Bill O'Leary/TWP)

Those taking advantage of D.C.'s early primary voting may have noticed the sad news: White House "third crasher" Carlos Allen did not make it on to the Democratic ballot. The uninvited state dinner guest not named Salahi actually got far enough in his quixotic mayoral campaign to submit petitions bearing 2,000-plus signatures -- which, alas, did not hold up under the scrutiny of a challenge.

But wait! Allen is now angling to get onto November's ballot as an independent ("I'm not beholden to the Democrats or the Republicans") and has just submitted another petition toward that goal. His strategy: "I'm laying back and waiting to see who [of the other candidates] beats up each other the most."

So, uh, you watching "Real Housewives of D.C."? No, he told us. "It's not relevant to what I want to do for the District."
