"This debate is a fraud”

COLUMBUS, Oh –  As the League of Women Voters noted in past presidential debates, when the two corporate parties demand control of the process and have a contract with each other rather than allowing for free and open debate, the debates become a “hoodwinking of the American public.” Of tonight’s debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins said, “I consider this debate a fraud. This debate isn’t sponsored by an independent organization, the Democrats and Republicans have a contract with each other. They have veto power over moderators. This isn’t a debate, it’s a farce.” Continue reading

Hawkins says Supreme Court nomination should wait until after the election

Wants to overhaul the anti-democratic nature of the court Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for President, said that while the nomination of the new Supreme Court Justice should wait until the next presidential term, it was also important to reign in the powers of the court, which he described as "an unaccountable, unelected super-legislative council of lifers."

Greens denounce Wisconsin Supreme Court decision

(SYRACUSE, NY - September 14, 2020) Green Party nominees for President and Vice President, Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker, rejected the decision handed down earlier today by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, to deny placing them on the November 2020 ballot. The Green Party has been on the ballot in Wisconsin for every presidential election since 1996. Several years ago, the workers of Wisconsin occupied the state capitol building with shouts of "this is what democracy looks like." Angela Walker mobilized her Milwaukee transit workers local union into that defense of workers' rights. Unfortunately, today, the state Supreme Court demonstrated something completely different from what most people consider to be democracy: a choice on their ballot. Continue reading

What the Dems aren't telling you about Wisconsin

Well, we finally made the mainstream media, but while 2016 was all about slandering Stein/Baraka as Russian assets, this year it's that Howie and Angela are tools of the Republican Party that are denying people in Wisconsin their absentee ballots. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Green Party's track record as being the party of election integrity is clear. We are the ones regularly pressing for integrity from elections authorities around the country. We are the ones pushing to replace bad voting machines with auditable paper ballots and ending voter suppression via racist voter ID laws and party suppression. Continue reading

Hawkins campaign blasts Democrats' manufactured crisis in Wisconsin

SYRACUSE, NY – Today the Wisconsin Supreme Court ordered that absentee ballots should not be mailed until it decides whether to place Green Party candidates Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker on the ballot. The Court will review the actions taken by the Democrats on the Wisconsin Election Commission in keeping the Green candidates off the ballot. The Court is seeking additional facts to make a decision in this critically important case involving voter choice. "The courts are right to be skeptical of this manufactured delay caused by the Democrats," said campaign manager Andrea Mérida, "Had the Democrats on the Elections Commission avoided violating basic due process at the hearing, we would not be in this position. Instead, the hyper-partisan Democrats on the commission denied our campaign the right to present evidence and should have dismissed the challenge from the beginning because our campaign followed the commission staff's instructions to the letter regarding Angela Walker's address change."
