Reported in the Sunday Boregonian:
Moses Ross, an official with the Multnomah County Democrats, estimated there could be as many as 100 Democrats in the room [the Nader conventions at Benson High]. If it throws off the count, "it will accomplish our goal," he said.
From the AP story:
And on Saturday, a county Democratic spokesman asked Democrats to attend to take up seats in the hall while not signing the petition supporting Nader's candidacy.
"We need as many Oregon Democrats as possible to fill that room and NOT sign that petition," Multnomah County Democratic Party communications director Moses Ross wrote an e-mail sent to Democrats in the county.
"If we attend in large numbers and politely refuse to sign, Nader is denied his needed numbers. It's that simple. Please make every attempt to attend this important event."
