Easy to see who isn't in the club

The candidates who aren't in the club are the ones being sued by the club.
The gloves came off last week as New Orleans residents filed lawsuits attempting to oust seven candidates for various municipal and parish offices, a week after qualifying ended for the fall elections.

Candidates running for City Council Districts D and E, City Council at-large Division 1, sheriff, assessor and clerk of Criminal District Court were targeted in suits that mainly hinged on the question of unfiled tax returns.

The challenges mostly seek to disqualify political newcomers running in races against incumbents or veterans seeking a different office.
Hardly anyone outside of the elite circles has lifted a finger to present a serious challenge in these elections. So in light of that, this seems like overkill. But I guess we can never be too careful.
