Rose Bouziane the mother of U.S. activist, consumer advocate, and frequent third-party candidate, Ralph Nader.She confronted Sen. Prescott Bush (R-CT) in 1955, after a catastrophic flood. Bush was approached by Nader at a public gathering, and offered his hand in an obligatory fashion. Mrs. Nader "latched on" and refused to free him until he promised to help a dry-dam proposal move forward. Her request was fulfilled. Later, she advocated building a community center for children, forming a speakers club that would bring worldly lecturers to the town, and expanding and preserving a local hospital.Occasionially, Nader used newspaper opinion pages to express her views. Writing in the New York Times in 1982, she denounced the use of "credibility phrases" such as "frankly", "to tell you the truth" and "in all honesty" that sometimes came before a political statement or sales pitch. They gave her "the pervasive feeling that distrust is so widespread that people need to use such language to be believed."Nader died on January 20, 2006 at the age of 99.Cause of death:Heart Faliure (bio by: Jared Walker)
