Greens are on the Ballot in Texas but 'persecuted by an ongoing witchhunt'
"I've been disappointed to watch the Democratic Party leadership use the courts as a political and media arena. The Green Party is clearly within the limits of the law, and yet we and our supporters are being persecuted by an ongoing witchhunt. Our top priority now is to move forward with the 2010 campaign, and we hope that the Supreme Court will rule in a way that allows us to do so without further harassment," stated Christine Morshedi, co-chair of Green Party of Texas.We continue to object to the current scheme of corporate sponsorship of elections, which results in Texas Democrat and Republican Parties accepting millions of dollars from for-profit corporations each election cycle, as evidenced by the corporate sponsorship banners that routinely adorn the walls of their state conventions. We call, without reservation, for an end to corporate participation in elections in the United States, and, indeed, for the termination of the misguided notion of corporate personhood(2).
