Nader's petitions attacked in South Carolina
AP reports: Groups of S.C. residents and attorneys are questioning pro-Nader petitions in various counties -- including York, election workers confirmed Thursday.
If the groups convince officials to toss out more than 1,000 of the 11,000 signatures supporting Nader statewide, he could be booted from the ballot.
Simon Demory, Nader's S.C. coordinator, said it's alarming that state Democrats are working to suppress Nader's candidacy.
"Personally, I think it's a very, very scary thing," he said. "That's a pretty dangerous precedent to set."
Organizers said they are trying only to make sure the signatures are legally valid, because they could affect the election. -- Groups in S.C. attack petitions favoring Nader (AP via Charlotte Observer)
