Pennsylvania Dems scrutinizing Nader petitions

The Philadelphia Daily News reports: Gregory Harvey picked a petition at random yesterday and examined the 100 signatures of supposedly registered Philadelphia voters who had signed to put Ralph Nader on the Pennsylvania ballot for president in November.

Only five of the signatures looked legit, the veteran Democratic election lawyer said.

One petition down, 1,188 to go.

Fifty Democratic volunteers started working in shifts yesterday at the City Commission office, building the case for a Commonwealth Court challenge to Nader's spot on the ballot.

Nader's campaign filed about 50,000 signatures with the state Monday, almost twice the 25,697 needed to qualify. -- Dems combing Nader petitions (Philadelphia Daily News)
