Ralph Nader defends Lori

On Sunday, August 13, Ralph Nader, presidential candidate for the Green Party, was interviewed by John McLaughlin on the program One on One. The Green Party has "Lori's release" as part of its platform. Responding to a comment by Mr. McLaughlin critical of the platform's support for Lori, Ralph Nader simply stated that Lori has been framed, she has been badly treated in prison, and she must be released. (We heard this second-hand and are not sure of the exact words). We are grateful to Mr. Nader and the Green Party for their support.
