DescriptionAssociate Judge Laninya Cason, a Republican candidate for circuit judge, on Saturday gave a videotaped statement to the O'Fallon Police Department alleging that congressional candidate William Enyart, a Democrat, pushed her aside as she tried to hand out one of her campaign flyers at a parade.

Enyart's campaign denied the allegation, saying he accidentally bumped into Cason.

Cason, a former Democrat who was passed over by her former party for its nomination as the circuit judge candidate, said she would sign a statement asking that Enyart, a retired two-star general in the Illinois National Guard, be charged with battery, a misdemeanor. The alleged incident occurred during the O'Fallon High School homecoming parade.
