Why Is The Man Who Stole Ohio Campaigning With A White Supremacist?

globanim.gifThings got hot on Magic 98.9FM radio today in Columbus. I was a guest on the Khari Enaharo talk show “Straight Talk” and we actually got some straight talk from the J. Kenneth Blackwell for Governor campaign.

Eric Seabrook, attorney and spokesperson for the Blackwell campaign, conceded that Blackwell had campaigned with a white supremacist, Larry Pratt, as reported in the Columbus Dispatch on Oct. 5. Pratt, who was forced from the Pat Buchanan campaign for being too far to the right and ties to white supremacists, campaigned with Blackwell on Wednesday, Oct. 4 on gun rights.

Seabrook tried to spin it as a “straight gun rights issue” but black callers to the show and other guests in the studio, including Republican Walter Cates were outraged that Blackwell would campaign with an avowed racist.

The story will be released on http://www.freepress.orgindex2.php/ tomorrow.

You Too Can Help Prevent Voting Irregularities

The best item in today’s Columbus Dispatch was buried on page D7 under the headline “Bush on Blackwell: ‘a nut,’ Woodward book claims.” The Big D reported that on page 347 of Woodward’s new book State of Denial, Bush told Karl Rove that “I’m the President of the United States waiting on a Secretary of State who is a nut.”

Anyone who knows Blackwell knows this rings true, in the same way if Woodward would have reported that Bush was dim-witted. The beauty of Bush’s America, the Jethro Bodine president relying on the opportunistic former black nationalist to steal the vote in Ohio as the Free Press had previously reported, an eyewitness on election day saw the Secretary of State busy frantically writing in numbers on precinct maps of down state Republican counties. Granted, it’s crazy for the people of Ohio to allow the chief election officer to be involved in such a clearly partisan way – delivering the vote for Bush from his government office. It’s also equally crazy that the Dispatch has refused to investigate the illegality of Blackwell’s activities in the 2004 election.

A then Dispatch reporter claims that Michael Dawson, the press aide to Senator Mike Dewine visited the Dispatch editorial board and convince them not to investigate the massive irregularities in the 2004 election.

You can help prevent irregularities in the 2006 election by adopting a board of elections, being a poll monitor, an election protection volunteer or videotaping the events at polling sites on Election Day – by attending the Voting Rights Revival conference at Columbus State Community College on October 13-15. See www.freepress.org/vrrc for details. The conference is free!

We Count Conference, Kucinich Introduces H.R. 6200

The biggest surprise at the “We Count” conference in Cleveland was the announcement by U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich that he’s introduced H.R. 6200, a bill with 19 co-sponsors, that would require “hand counted paper, ballots counted, and posted at the precinct level” for the 2008 presidential election. To a rousing ovation, Kucinich told the assembled voting rights activists that “we heard you.”

He said, in reference to Ohio’s 2004 stolen presidential election “We understand why there’s such great concern…there are lingering questions about the 2004 election and there ought to be.”

What should not be lingering in anyone’s mind is the fact that Blackwell was the point man for Bush boys in stealing the 2004 election. We must do everything in our power to make sure Blackwell does not become governor in the Buckeye State.

To find out more about the 2004 presidential election and Cynthia McKinney’s fight against corrupt politics and election stealing, see the film “American Blackout,” by GNN, a Sundance-award winning film at Studio 35 this week through Thursday in Columbus. Another film documenting the run-up to the 2004 election in Ohio plays at the Drexel Gateway starting this Friday, October 6 – “…And so goes the nation.”

And if you want to ensure that what happened at the polls in 2004 doesn’t happen again: don’t miss the Voting Rights Revival – Tune in, Tune Up, Turn Out! voting rights event in Columbus on October 13-15 at Columbus State Community College, Nestor Hall. Starting on Friday evening we will present speakers, entertainment and workshops to prepare for the 2006 election. Workshops will organize volunteers to work as Election Protection on Election Day – observing, monitoring and videoing at the polls – legal protection – parallel elections and exit polling – and how to adopt-a-board. We will have singers, comedy, spoken word and several films and videos such as “American Blackout,” “Stealing America Vote by Vote” and more! The conference is FREE and open to the public. See the website: www.freepress.org/vrrc or call 614-253-2571.

Republican War, Democratic Enablers

constitution_mth.jpg

I got to speak with Rev. Werner Lange this weekend at the “We Count” voting rights conference in Cleveland. On September 22, within an hour of the funeral of Sgt. David Gordon of Andover who was killed in Iraq, Rev. Lange took to the streets. Bearing a sign that read “Stop the war now!” Lange stood in the middle of the street in Andover’s town square and spread the following message: “Not one more life, not one more wound, not one more dime for this immoral war based on lies.” Lange was eventually arrested and taken to the Ashtabula County Jail. 

Lange’s protest is part of a new nationwide campaign of nonviolent disobedience against the illegal war in Iraq which began September 21 on the International Day of Peace. Lange is an independent candidate for U.S. Congress in Ohio’s 14th district. More of us need to take action like Rev. Lange, support his efforts, as well as his candidacy. The Republican Party is a party of war and Democratic Party are their enablers.
