Court: Nader Must Pay for Election Suit Court: Nader Must Pay for Election Suit

New York Times reports in an article titled: Court: Nader Must Pay for Election Suit that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered Ralph Nader and his running mate to pay more than $80,000 for filing fraudulent petitions to get themselves on the PA ballot in 2004. It seems that luminaries like Mickey Mouse and Fred Flintstone may have mistakenly signed multiple petitions. A lawyer for Nader, contending that Truth, Justice, and the American Way demand that the question of who actually signed the petitions is irrelevant, went on to suggest that 'The decision will force any future third-party candidate to decide "whether or not he wants to bet his family home in an effort to have his political views heard,"'.
