SAG election challenged

Treasurer candidate Haigney accuses guild of violations

HOLLYWOOD — One of the losing treasurer candidates in the Screen Actors Guild’s rerun election has formally challenged the contest.

Kathleen Haigney, who finished third with 4,460 votes or 12%, filed the challenge on allegations of permitting ineligible members to vote, violating the right of all members to run, retaliation for exercising rights and violation of the SAG constitution. Haigney alleged that SAG did not follow the New York rule requiring that a CPA verify the eligibility of members.

SAG spokeswoman Ilyanne Kichaven said the challenge would be reviewed by the elections committee, which was reconstituted after the rerun was ordered. She added that the panel will consider the merits of the case and whether the alleged violations would have changed the outcome.

The previous election committee based its decision to order the rerun on violations of rules regarding the ballot signature line and deadlines for turning in ballots. That decision has been appealed to the Dept. of Labor.
