Saturday Special election coverage: Nader files federal lawsuit naming 
Kerry, Edwards... and Madigan

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- A lawsuit was filed yesterday in federal court in 
the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, naming John 
Kerry and John Edwards as defendants who have actively conspired to 
prevent the development of a national third party by impeding the 
effort of Ralph Nader and Peter Camejo to be listed on the ballot in 
states across the country, including Illinois.

Along with Kerry and Edwards, the lawsuit names as defendants 
organizations and individuals who have played key roles in the effort 
to deprive Nader/Camejo access to the ballot including: the Democrat 
National Committee and its chair Terry McAuliffe, Speaker of the 
Illinois House of Representatives Michael Madigan, former Congressman 
Toby Moffet, TheNaderFactor.com president David Jones, Multnomah County 
Democrat Party chair Jeff Merrick, and others.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit are independent voters from seven states who 
want the opportunity to vote for the Nader/Camejo ticket to further the 
process of developing America's independent political movement and to 
create a broad based national third party.

The suit charges that in early 2004 defendants urged Nader not to run 
for president as an independent and when he did not acquiesce in their 
demand, embarked on a conspiracy to deny him ballot access in as many 
states as possible, thereby impeding the development of a third party.

Plaintiffs include independent voters from Illinois, New York, Texas, 
California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Georgia are joined by The 
Committee for a Unified Independent Party, a not-for-profit whose 
purpose is to expand political participation and further the growth of 
independent politics.
