Nader Back Off of Florida Ballot

From Holden:

Jeebus, are Republicans special citizens who require two court orders before they will comply with the law?

Circuit Judge P. Kevin Davey for the second time ordered Wednesday that Nader’s name be removed from the November ballot, again finding that the Reform Party isn’t a legitimate party under state law. He also ordered that four counties that have already mailed absentee ballots listing Nader send out amended ballots without his name.

His ruling overturns a stay of his order that was automatically issued when Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood appealed Davey’s original ruling. The state Supreme Court has scheduled a Friday hearing on the appeal.
