A judge booted Arizona Corporation Commissioner Boyd Dunn off the Republican primary ballot Thursday after a campaign worker who gathered nominating petition signatures on his behalf admitted in court that she forged some of the names.

After tossing all of the 166 nominating petition signatures the worker had submitted along with several hundred other signatures that county election officials deemed invalid, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Roger Brodman said Dunn was 92 signatures short of qualifying for a spot on the ballot.

The decision upends Dunn’s bid for a second term on the five-member board, which regulates the utility industry and sets electricity rates.
