Critics of Sen. Joe Lieberman's independent run to keep his job attacked on two fronts Monday. On one side, a group whose members described themselves as peace activists asked Sharon Ferrucci, the Democratic registrar of voters in New Haven, Connecticut, to remove Lieberman from the Democratic party, arguing that he cannot be a Democrat while running under another party's banner. Additionally, former rival John Orman called on state officials to keep Lieberman's name off the November ballot. Staffers for Lieberman, who lost the Aug. 8 Democratic primary to businessman Ned Lamont and is now running under the new Connecticut for Lieberman party, called both efforts dirty politics.
