Ralph Nader

Austin, Texas-
On Monday green party leader and presidential candidate Ralph Nader filed papers to sue the state of Texas. This comes a day after missing the deadline for ballot registration for the Texas presidential election.

Texas ballot rules required his party to gather at least 64,076 signatures by 6 p.m. Monday from registered voters who did not vote in this year's Democratic or Republican primaries.

The figure equals about 1 percent of the votes cast in Texas in the 2000 presidential election. Nader is short at least 10,000 signatures, and has filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas saying that the ballot rules were unconstitutional.

Nader, who has of yet qualified for any state ballot, went before an Austin judge to pled his case. "Come on, you know I don't have a chance in hell to win. What's the big deal?" pleaded Nader.

"He was screaming like a little Bitch" said one bystander. However after another five minuets of Nader's "Tizzy Fit" judge Hefron Maxwell ordered the bailiff along with two other guards to haul Nader off, with Nader still lying on the floor kicking and screaming.

However this is not the end of Nader's case. A Texas supreme court judge panel will hear on this case this coming Friday to see wither or not the Texas ballot law is unconstitutional.
