Another problem for Nader in Arizona

A lawsuit seeking to keep Ralph Nader off Arizona's presidential election ballot is raising allegations that three different signatures purporting to be Nader's were filed with his nominating petitions.

Tom Irvine, attorney for two Democrats challenging the validity of thousands of Nader petition signatures, pointed out the discrepancies Monday as Nader's campaign mobilized its legal defense to keep his bid alive.

The consumer and environmental advocate's group hired attorney Lisa Hauser, who served in the mid-1990s as counsel to then-Gov. Fife Symington, a Republican, and often has been aligned with other GOP causes. Hauser said she is not being supported by the GOP in the case. -- Nader signatures questioned in Dems' lawsuit (Arizona Republic)
