Bush Camp Helping Nader
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
This Saturday, there will be a convention in Portland, Oregon to attempt to place Ralph Nader on the Oregon ballot. They will need 1,000 registered voters for his name to be on the November ballot and an independent. A few months ago, they attempted but came up short.
I am a Democrat who, a short while ago, gave my email address and phone number to the local Republican party to receive updates on what they were up to. Today I received a phone call from the local Republican party asking me if I wanted to go the Nader convention. They explained the need to get Nader on the ballot to help President Bush. The name on the caller ID on my phone said "Bush Cheney" implying that they were calling from the Oregon Bush Cheney headquarters.
I found it blatantly sleazy of the Bush Cheney campaign to ask volunteers to attend a Nader rally and contacted the John Kerry campaign and some local media.
Do what you wish with this info, it should start hitting the Oregon news radar in a few hours.
I'll try to send some news links when I get them.
