Hours after failed Republican Senate candidate Shiva Ayyadurai sued Secretary of State William Galvin over what he claims is massive election fraud, a federal judge schooled him - and his lawyer - in the basics of federal constitutional law, specifically the 11th Amendment, which bars federal courts from hearing lawsuits involving the way state officials do their jobs, such as overseeing elections.

Update: Federal judge says candidate won't get a dime from Galvin.

Shiva Ayyadurai charges Secretary of State Bill Galvin used his immense influence over Twitter to get the platform to silence him for two weeks at a critical point in his write-in campaign for US Senate mere weeks after he had lost his bid to get on the ballot as a Republican - a campaign he says he was forced to undertake because the state committed "election fraud" - which is, of course, the only reason a household name such as himself could possibly have lost the primary to a nobody from nowhere, like what's his name, Kevin O'Connor.

Seems it wasn't enough for Shiva Ayyadurai to lose the Republican primary for Senate to the man who will lose to Ed Markey.

Candidate on the far right.

Shamus Moynihan happened to drop by the Dedham Whole Foods this afternoon as independent Senate candidate Shiva Ayyadurai and some minions were outside trying to collect signatures.

People are running away from him like that street scene in Borat.

EPIC CLASH Between Howie Carr and Shiva Ayyadurai

For people who enjoy a good car wreck, skip to 2:00 in this video. Right-winger Shiva Ayyadurai, who says he invented e-mail and who is one of several Republicans looking to run against Elizabeth Warren next year, accuses Howie Carr - Howie Carr - of being a "Fake Trumper." Carr responds in classic Carr fashion - by pulling out copies of the records related to Ayyadurai's 2005 arrest on a charge of domestic assault and battery against his then girlfriend (Naturally, Carr also posted copies of those records).

H/t Ron.

He closed his tweet with the secret mating call of Massachusetts right wingers: #Fauxcahauntas.
