Green Party Watch, April 17th, 2016:
Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant has launched an online petition urging Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is currently seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, to join Jill Stein on a Green Party ticket or to run as an independent.
Sawant said, “The stakes are too high to let this moment slip through our fingers. That’s why I’ve launched this petition urging Bernie — if he is blocked in the rigged primary process — to run as an independent, or as a Green on the ticket with Jill Stein. We can’t allow the corporate media, Wall Street PACs, and the Democratic Party establishment to derail this movement before the real presidential election even begins.”
