Nader seeks reopening of Pa. ballot access case

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Court papers filed on behalf of Ralph Nader and his 2004 running mate ask a Pennsylvania court to reconsider an order for them to pay more than $81,000.

Nader and running mate Peter Miguel Camejo were ordered to pay court costs of the voters who challenged signatures on his nominating petitions. But the court papers filed Monday in Commonwealth Curt allege that state Democratic legislative officials illegally underwrote the effort with taxpayer money.

The petition cites a grand jury presentment released July 10 by state Attorney General Tom Corbett. It says, among other things, that dozens of state employees worked on government time to challenge Nader's appearance on Pennsylvania's ballot.
