Bush Bigs Open Their Wallets For Nader

By Lorraine Woellert

 

If you like George, can you like Ralph, too? Some Bush-hugging Republicans seem to have a soft spot for Nader. On June 23, two Democratic voters sued to block Nader's petition to get on Arizona's ballot, arguing that he has only 10,161 valid signatures. The Arizona Democratic Party says about half of those -- 4,727 names -- while valid, are registered Republicans. Dems shockingly suggest that GOPers are backing Nader so he'll draw votes from John Kerry.

 

Nationally, at least three dozen Bush donors have opened their wallets for Nader. Among them: Richard J. Egan of Hopkinton, Mass., who maxed out with a $2,000 gift. Could this be the same Richard J. Egan who was chairman of EMC Corp.? Who served as President Bush's ambassador to Ireland? Who has raised at least $200,000 for Bush?

 

No, Egan's assistant says, that's "a different Dick Egan." What a coincidence, since state and Federal Election Commission records show Dick Egan the Naderite living at the same address as Dick Egan the Bush Ranger. The Ranger's son, John R. Egan, a $10,000 donor to the Republican National Committee, also has ponied up $2,000 for Nader.

 

Collectively, Bush donors account for about $41,000 of the $1 million Nader has raised. Nader says he sees no evidence that Republicans are conspiring to hurt Kerry by helping him.

This is the Dems' fault anyway. It's no one's problem but their own that they can't achieve enough of a consensus to solidify thier voting base against a 3rd party split.

The biggest advantage the right has in third parties, is THe Reform is backing Nadar.

 

Perot killed any chance Dole had in 96 and I was suprised Pat wasn't a big vote getter in 00 because I thought a lot of extreme right's would have gone to him but I guess they were smart enought o realize that election was too important for that.

Its not a question of the Democratic split its the idiocy of actors and actresses who back the ?Green Party, and potential voters for Democrats go gaga that "Look Tom Cruise is in the Green Party;" or "That chick Cameron Diaz is in the Green Party, lets vote that." The Green Party is all republican and there are maybe one or two thousand real independants in that party that disagree with Republican and Democrats.
