Unity ‘08 slows down

Unity ‘08 was an attempt to have a kind of national primary, and to put the winner of that primary (who might have been a major or other third party candidate) on a special ballot line around the country.The news is that Unity ‘08 seems to have given up on that lofty goal.

Unity08 might also have lambasted U.S. District Court Judge Richard Roberts, who has jurisdiction of Unity08’s lawsuit against that FEC ruling. All the briefs were filed more than 7 months ago, and he has not ruled in all that time. However, Unity08 said nothing about the lawsuit, except that it will keep the lawsuit going…
