Nader isn't persoanlly corrupt, of course; quite the contrary, he's creepily righteous. But one reason he didn't actually campaign for the presidency was almost certainly that he didn't want to reveal the sources of his funding, notably trial lawyers, who aren't the most popular people around. An alum of the Nader orbit told me that he's got a foundation setup to disguise the source of the contributions, so he can claim plausible deniability.
