Ralph Nader jumped into the political fray today, suing the Dems for a "vast Democratic Party conspiracy" to block his 2004 election, McClatchy Newspapers reports. He accused the Democratic Party, Kerry-Edwards 2004, and other groups of keeping him from state ballots "as a means to drive into deep debt or bankrupt the Nader-Camejo campaign."
Nader has tangled with Dems before, when Democratic officials sued his 2004 campaign in 18 states and blocked him from key ballots. A DNC spokesman claimed no knowledge of today’s action, which seeks punitive and compensatory damages, as well as injunctive relief. Is today's move a prelude to Nader running in 2008? He says only that he’ll decide by year's end.
