AN OPEN LETTER TO RALPH NADER

Dear Mr. Nader: Last week it was brought to our attention that a member of the Green Party of the United States named Greg Gerritt addressed a letter to a member of your staff, Matthew Zawisky. In that letter Mr. Gerritt identified himself as one of the cochairs of the Green Party's Presidential Campaign Support Committee (PCSC).
