Stein, expected to become the party’s nominee at its August convention, says she has invited Sanders to collaborate: ‘Everything is on the table’
I'll note here that I'm not anti-Green Party and actually on those online "tests" I quite align with much of their politics. But I find this to be an extreme and unacceptable break from integrity when it is quite known that Sanders has promised to not go third party.

Sanders, an independent in the U.S. Senate who is seeking the 2016 presidency on the Democratic ticket, explained in a Q&A session with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce that he feels a responsibility to stick to the two-party system in the presidential contest.
So to break from that, he'd lose his credibility. He'd certainly lose my vote and I did vote him in the primary.
To encourage him to break his promise, that's desperate and reprehensible.
