By KATHARINE Q. SEELYE

WASHINGTON, Aug. 17 - Ralph Nader's efforts to get his name on presidential ballots in important swing states are becoming mired in legal challenges and charges of fraud by Democrats who have mounted an extensive campaign to keep him from becoming a factor in this year's election.

...

"The Democrats are making this as difficult and as debilitating for him as possible, making him expend blood, sweat and tears for every inch," said Charles E. Cook Jr., a nonpartisan analyst who tracks races in every state. "He has only so many hours in the day and so many resources. And to the extent that he's tied up trying to get on the ballots, he's not getting any kind of message across."


Somehow I seriously doubt if they will but it does demonstrate just how very HOLLOW their cries about "disenfranchised voters" really ring. On the same order as their attempts in 2000 to force the throwing out of absentee ballots.

Ed, people who sign petitions should plan to vote for that candidate. In Texas and many other states, if you vote in a primary in an election year, you're ineligible to sign a petition -- and that's as it should be. Nader's campaign is largely being bankrolled by Republicans, so who's actually being "disenfranchised" here?

Why "should" they?

There is no law stating so and they are simply exercising their 1st Amendment rights and helping someone who the other main party is throwing up roadblocks for.

Tell us again about your vote in the election in which Clinton won his second term and why you traded votes.

Don't throw stones in that glass house Dave.

IF it's true and verifiable, it's an old trick

In reply to: Re: Will Kerry et al denounce this little example of...

to pull votes from your major competitor if the polls are showing both the leaders are close. Depending on which side you want to win, you either cry 'foul' or you secretly 'smile'.
