Now, Democrats Threaten to Oust Lieberman from Ballot
The feeding frenzy continues!
Just like they did with Ralph Nader in 2004, democrats today are again working to oust the third party candidate from a state ballot:
Critics of Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman’s independent run to keep his job attacked on two fronts Monday, with one group asking an elections official to throw him out of the Democratic Party and a former rival calling on state officials to keep his name off the November ballot.
Staffers for the senator from Connecticut, who lost the Aug. 8 Democratic primary to Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont, called both efforts dirty politics. The senator filed as an independent candidate a day after the loss, running under the new Connecticut for Lieberman Party.
