2000 campaign controversy
After a great deal of infighting conservative presidential candidate Pat Buchanan was granted the party's ballot line. Due to confusion over the ballot, many residents miscast their vote for Buchanan, believing they were casting their vote for Al Gore. Thus, Buchanan received an astonishing 3,407 votes in Palm Beach County. Many accused Buchanan of being a "spoiler."
2004 election controversy
The courts eventually sided with Nader, and his name appeared on the ballot. Nader's spokesperson, Kevin Zeese, criticized the ordeal, saying: "We hope Democrats engage on issues and stop anti-democratic efforts to prevent voters from having a choice." 
Nader received 32,971 votes in Florida.

Linn was not hurt, although he spent a day in the hospital under observation.
The party's presidential candidate, Ted Weill, did not appear on the ballot.
