Just in time for Halloween, former Democratic Party foil
Ralph Nader has popped out for another ghoulish surprise: he's suing the Party
! And part of his evidence deals with what he says happened in Oregon.
In a lawsuit
filed Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court, Nader alleges the Democrats, along with several other organizations like the now-disbanded
America Coming Together, sued to keep the former Green Party candidate off the ballot
in 18 states to stop him from siphoning votes from Dem. candidate John Kerry.
The lawsuit is seeking "compensatory damages, punitive damages and injunctive relief to enjoin the defendants from ongoing and future violations of the law."
And guess what? Oregon activists are singled out in the lawsuit as being especially freaky
! The lawsuit accuses the Democratic National Party of sending Kerry supporters to a Nader event
at Benson High School, which kept Nader from raising enough signatures to get on the ballot.

of the rally in question for yourself.
It was widely reported that Republicans also sent Bush supporters
to this rally and other Nader events in order to boost the numbers there and help
Nader get on the ballot.
