Washington Post Carries Ralph Nader Letter About Ballot Access

The January 28 print edition of the Washington Post carries this letter to the editor from Ralph Nader. Nader commends U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for fighting for voting rights for voters, but points out that the administration has been silent about ballot access for candidates. Nader also advocates that Congress pass a national ballot access bill for federal elections. Bills to do this have been introduced in nine sessions of Congress during the last 26 years. They were introduced first by John Conyers (D-Michigan), then Tim Penny (D-Minnesota), and then by Ron Paul (R-Texas). No such bill is pending in the current session of Congress. Thanks to Bill Van Allen for the link.
