Ohio Dems attack Nader

The Columbus Dispatch reports: Democrats intensified their attack on Ralph Nader's bid to get on the Ohio's presidential ballot yesterday, accusing his campaign of "the most systematic and widespread fraud the state has ever seen."

Andrew B. Clubok, a Washington lawyer representing Democratic opponents to Nader's petition, said if the challenges are upheld, Nader would fall short of having enough valid signatures to qualify for the Ohio ballot on Nov. 2.

Clubok, one of a trio of lawyers at a Statehouse news conference yesterday, charged that the Nader campaign utilized "a bunch of out-of-state con men" to gather Ohioans' signatures to get him on the ballot. -- Democrats say Nader bid rife with fraud (The Columbus Dispatch)
