Washington Post “disappears” the DC Statehood Green Party

The Washington Post “disappears” the DC Statehood Green Party in its 2012 Voters Guide listing of candidates
WASHINGTON, DC — DC Statehood Green Party leaders and candidates are asking The Washington Post why the newspaper chose to omit party affiliation in its 2012 ‘Voters Guide’ listing of DC Statehood Green candidates.

The Post’s annual Voters Guide was published on Thursday, November 1 in the paper’s Local Living section (District edition, page 18). Candidates for public office are listed with information about their campaigns, along with an indication of party affiliation.

The party affiliations of Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian candidates (abbreviated D, R, and L) follow their names in the headline for each candidate. Statehood Green candidates are included in the Voters Guide, but no party is given for them. (Below is a list of Statehood Green candidates and their web sites or contact information.)

The DC Statehood Green Party has major party status and ballot access in Washington, DC. In recent elections, Statehood Green candidates have collectively received more votes than Republican candidates, leading some to call Statehood Greens “DC’s Second Party” in terms of election day numbers.

Calls to the Post have not been returned, as of 6 p.m. Friday, November 2. …
