Jeb Bush Appointee Ignores Court, Puts Nader on Florida Ball

HeadlineSep 15, 2004

In related news it appears Ralph Nader’s name will appear on the ballot in Florida. Earlier this week Secretary of State Glenda Hood, an appointee of Governor Jeb Bush, ordered Florida’s election supervisors to * put Nader back on the ballot* despite a temporary injunction by a state judge that had knocked Nader off the ballot. Scott Maddox, the chairman of the Florida Democratic Party, said “Clearly, this is blatant partisan maneuvering by Jeb Bush to once again give his brother a leg up on Election Day.” The Democrats are continuing their effort to keep Nader off the ballot by appealing Hood’s decision in * three separate courts*. So far Nader is on the ballot in 33 states but in 12 of these states he is fighting efforts by the Democrats to kick him off the ballot.
