Good news (and a new book) for ballot access

The book is Grand Illusion, The Myth of Voter Choice in a Two-Party Tyranny, by Theresa Amato who was Ralph Nader’s national campaign manager in 2000 and 2004. You can buy the book: here.

The good news is that someone has written the book on why ballot access is so important and the injustices of the Democratic operatives in trying to keep Nader off the ballot in 2000 and 2004. Also, that the book and story were mentioned in the Washington Post. Great coverage for the cause, Ms. Amato!
