Green Party Candidate Jill Stein Seeks Third-Party Slot in Debates

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has launched a petition to allow third-party candidates in the presidential debates. In 2012, Stein and her running mate, Cheri Honkala, were arrested and shackled to chairs for about seven hours for trying to enter a debate from which Stein and other third-party candidates were blocked from participating. Stein and others plan to file a lawsuit against the Commission on Presidential Debates.
