Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Saturday, September 13, 2008: Brian Moore of Florida and Stewart A. Alexander of California, the Socialist Party-USA candidates for President and Vice President, respectively, have initiated lawsuits against the States of Louisiana and Mississippi for denying the Socialist Party’s presidential ticket a place on the ballot in the November General Election. Both lawsuits are expected to be filed early next week.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Secretary of State Jay Dardenne were blasted today by Socialist Party’s presidential candidate for their “shameless” actions to keep the Socialist Party’s presidential ticket and four other parties, including the Libertarian Party, from being on the Louisiana ballot on November 4. Mark R. Brown, a law professor at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, who is representing the Socialist and Libertarian parties in their lawsuit against Louisiana, has written to state election officials urging them to reconsider their decision to deny both parties a place on the official ballot. “I cannot imagine that the Secretary [of State] would want to take advantage of a natural disaster to further his own political ends,” wrote Brown in a letter dated September 10, “but that is certainly the way it is shaping up.”
