A4! WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1996 CAMPAIGN '36 THE SALINA JOURNAL T PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES Judge rejects Perot's appeal to get into the debates Reform, Natural Law candidates to take case to Appeals Court By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A federal judge frustrated Ross Perot's hopes of sharing the debate stage with President Clinton and Bob Dole, ruling Tuesday that the courts had no jurisdiction in Perot's dispute with debate sponsors. Lawyers for Perot and another presidential candidate, John Hagelin of the Natural Law Party, said they would appeal the judge's dismissal of their cases and ask the U.S. Court of Appeals for quick action. The first debate is Sunday night. Perot's complaint, said U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan, "should be with Congress and the regulatory framework it established." That means Perot must deal with the Federal Election Commission in seeking to force his way into the debates from which he has been excluded by the private Commission PEROT on Presidential Debates. Perot has complained to the FEC, alleging that the debate commission has broken federal law and asking that it be blocked from sponsoring the debates if he is not allowed in. But FEC spokeswoman Sharon Snyder said the agency by law must follow a complaint process that cannot realistically be completed by Election Day. In declining to act, Hogan let stand the debate commission's decision that Perot should be excluded because he didn't have a realistic chance of winning the election. In the most recent CNN-USA Today- Gallup poll, released Tuesday, Democrat Clinton was favored by 57 percent of those surveyed, Republican challenger Dole by 32 percent and Reform Party candidate Perot by just 5 percent. There was a margin of potential sampling error of plus or minus 4 points. Exclusion from the televised debates "makes it more difficult for us," Perot's running mate, Pat Choate, said after Tuesday's decision. "At the same time it gives us a terrific issue and a great example of how closed the political system has become and how outsiders are truly excluded," he added. He held out hope that the appeals court might be more sympathetic. "We always feared that at the lower level we'd lose the case. Most decisions are made on the appellate level," Choate said. When the commission voted to exclude Perot from the debates last month, the Texan complained, "If I can't get on television, I can't get the THOMPSON T U.S. SENATE Democrat proposes pay cut Thompson also says congressional pensions also should be reduced By The Associated Press . TOPEKA — Democrat Sally Thompson promised Tuesday to push for a cut of at least 10 percent in salaries for members of Congress if she is elected to the U.S. Senate. Thompson, the state treasurer and Democratic nominee for the seat of retiring Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, said cutting congressional salaries should be part of an effort to balance the federal budget. She also said she would push for legislation to make pensions for former members of Congress far less lucrative. She has noted throughout her campaign that her Republican opponent, Pat Roberts, the 1st District congressman, stands to earn a pension that could be worth $3.4 million. Thompson had a news conference in Wichita to discuss her proposals dealing with congressional pensions. She made her remarks about congressional pay during a telephone interview. "We've been asking the rest of America to sacrifice," she said. "I think we need to ask Congress to do its share." Roberts spokeswoman Jackie Cottrell dismissed Thompson's proposals as political gimmicks. She noted that congressional salaries have not increased since 1989 and that Congress has not adjusted its pay for inflation during the past three years. "Her campaign is solely based on petty and personal attacks against Pat Roberts," she said. Members of Congress receive about $133,000 in salary, an amount set in 1989, when the House and Senate approved pay raises. Roberts voted for the legislation — as Thompson has pointed out repeatedly. T LABOR AFL-CIO tries to get out the vote By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — After pounding Republicans with television ads in dozens of House districts this summer, the AFL-CIO is getting an early start on getting out the vote. Labor's $35 million ad campaign has softened up some GOP incumbents for Democrats looking to recapture control of Congress. Now the battle moves to phone banks and union halls as the grassroots network the AFL-CIO rebuilt this summer tries to motivate union members to turn out for labor- backed candidates. "We're into the grunt work at this point," said Tom Burke, an AFL-CIO political operative in the Maine district of Republican Rep. Jim Longley. Labor's phone-bank operation will make more than 6 million calls before Election Day to identify undecided union members, and the federation has begun distributing voter guides contrasting candidates' records. Republicans are readying a counter-attack. Ed Gillespie, communications director of the Republican National Committee, said the GOP would begin airing ads in selected congressional districts this week "pointing out that the labor unions are trying to buy control of Cpngress." 31" PictU ItvPict Heavy Duty Laundry Pair FREE!
