Challenge to Nader in Iowa
The Quad-City Times reports: A Drake University journalism professor filed a legal challenge Friday to presidential candidate Ralph Nader's petition to get on the ballot in Iowa.
Lee Baldwin Jolliffe, who is from Des Moines, filed the challenge Friday afternoon alleging that fewer than the required 1,500 signatures on Nader‚Äôs petition are valid. Nader's presidential campaign submitted a petition last week with 3,198 signatures to the Secretary of State's office.
The deadline for a challenge was at 5 p.m. Friday.
The Nader petition, she said, included instances of names not matching addresses, addresses that donít exist and multiple names that appeared to be in the same hand writing. She added that of the signatures she believes are legitimate, most were signed by people registered as Republicans. She said she did the research, with the help of some friends. -- Challenge filed to keep Nader off Iowa ballot (Quad-City Times)
