This story says independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin still owes his election law attorneys $520,000, from work they did for him during 2016. Yet, McMullin and his attorneys did not file any ballot access lawsuits. He could have been on the ballot in more than twelve states if he had done so. He had a very strong potential cases against Florida, Texas, and Wyoming.
A party called Better for America, which was formed in the spring of 2016 to find a candidate similar to McMullin, did file and win a ballot access lawsuit against New Mexico. Better for America then got on the ballot in New Mexico and nominated McMullin, so he was on the New Mexico ballot because of a lawsuit. However he himself had no connection to that lawsuit.
