RE: Gubernatorial lawsuit

And just WHOSE 5% are you going to use? If I worked at TV station X and did
NOT want the Slanderous Party nominee on my debate, I'd simply commission a
poll that garauntees that the 5% threshold is not met.

If you don't want so called 'minor party' candidates on debates, elect
Republicrats and Democans that will make their entry on the ballot more
