James Flavy Coy Brown, who could not have known his sad story would ignite fires beneath politicians in two states, had discharge papers that gave his address as: "Greyhound Bus Station to California."

In the missive, which is attached below and was written by experienced election law attorneys from Perkins Coie, they reveal that the incipient candidate has not yet raised more than $5,000. But, the attorneys say, she has left her position as...
