Arizona Democrats Attempt to Keep Nader off Ballot
By Guest Blogger - Charles Wilhelm

Could it be that Democrats are so fearful their candidate is going to lose that they feel the need to squeeze Ralph Nader off the ballot to pick up a few extra votes? They claim this is not the case, but read and decide for yourself.

From the Tucson Citizen:

Arizona Democrats have filed a lawsuit challenging the vast majority of signatures on Ralph Nader's nominating petitions gathered in the state.

Party officials expect the challenge to the independent presidential candidate will keep him off the state's November ballot.

The suit, filed by Phoenix lawyer Andy Gordon yesterday in response to scrutiny by Democratic party volunteers, alleges that 15,467 of the 21,512 signatures Nader's campaign collected in Arizona are invalid. That would leave Nader 8,649 shy of what he needs to be listed on the ballot.

I just hope Nader doesn't give in to the Congressional Black Caucus's demands that he drop out. I can't believe the nerve of some people, but with Maxine Waters leading the charge, get out of the way!
