Greens To Sue State Over Ballot Access Laws

It's not easy being green. The Green's sue the state again over ballot access laws.

Last time, as we predicted, the Green's won their lawsuit equalizing ballot access for new political parties with independents running for state-wide office. The state dragged its heels as much as it could, but in the end the judges called them on it.

This time it will be much harder for the Greens. They say it is unfair that their Senate candidate and all Congressional candidates got over 20% of the vote but they still don't get access just because their Presidential candidate failed to meet the 3% hurdle. More details on the suit here.
