New Hampshire Dems challenge Nader

AP reports: Democrats filed a formal challenge yesterday to keep presidential candidate Ralph Nader off the state ballot, alleging widespread fraud and deceit in his petition signatures.

"We know there are people whose signatures were forged; we know people were lied to when they were approached with these petitions," said Kathy Sullivan, state Democratic Party chairwoman. "The integrity of the ballot process must be protected."

Sullivan and three voters filed the challenge at the state Ballot Law Commission, which has scheduled a Sept. 24 hearing for two allegedly forged signatures Sullivan complained about last week. -- Formal petition is filed against Nader (AP via ConcordMonitor.com)
