The Summit Daily News has reported on former Westword cover boy and current state representative candidate Muhammad Ali Hasan, saying his ex-girlfriend and unofficial campaign coordinator Alison Miller has filed a temporary restraining order against him. "Miller accused Hasan, a Republican who is running to represent Eagle County in District 56, of harassing her by text message, attempting to break into her e-mail, and then repeatedly demanding that she sign a waiver saying she would not sue him for doing so, according to court documents," the story reads.

Hasan, the 27-year-old son of extremely wealthy and outspoken Pakistani parents, had first planned to run for state Senate District 8, but switched to House District 56 after pressure from constituents and elected officials. He and Alison are pictured above in happier times. Alongside that photo is one of Ali's mother, Seeme, and President Bush.
