We all knew this was happening
Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader is getting a little help from his friends - and from George W. Bush's friends.
Nearly 10 percent of the Nader contributors who have given him at least $250 each have a history of supporting the Republican president, national GOP candidates or the party, according to computer-assisted review of financial records by The Dallas Morning News.
Among the new crop of Nader donors: actor and former Nixon speechwriter Ben Stein, Florida frozen-food magnate Jeno Paulucci and Pennsylvania oil company executive Terrence Jacobs. All have strong ties to the GOP.
Ten percent is actually not that high. Expect that number to rise in the coming months as Nader taps out his own network and the GOP fills the void.
