Nader is Right

About this.

Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader came to Harrisburg Thursday with unfinished business on his mind.

Nader wants relief from an $81,102 penalty for legal costs following court battles over his presidential nomination petition in 2004. He said he will file a challenge with the state Supreme Court.

Nader said those damages should be dropped in light of criminal charges brought this month by Attorney General Tom Corbett against 12 people with ties to the state House Democratic caucus. Among allegations of illegal activities, Corbett said House Democratic staffers were deployed on state time in a successful effort to get Nader knocked off the ballot four years ago.

One hundred percent right. The fines at least should be suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.
