Today I’m launching, in honor of the Columbus Dispatch’s poll on religion in Ohio, my “The ‘J’ is for Judas” campaign. If you wish to donate any money to my campaign by going to http://www.bobforohio.com/donate , I would like to begin buying billboards and bumper stickers and radio commercials.
J. Kenneth Hackwell is Judas. He took more than 30 pieces of silver. In fact, he’s a multimillionaire and he accomplished this while on a meager public salary as state treasurer. Remember, in 1978, Hackwell, then the Vice Mayor of Cincinnati, was co-chair of liberal Democratic Lieutenant Governor Richard Celeste’s campaign for Governor. People who knew Hackwell in the mid-70s constantly refer to his Black Power and progressive rhetoric. He still likes to use it as needed, to invoke Martin Luther King, Jr. while stealing the votes from poor and black people.
Hackwell is the perfect betrayer and hypocrite is far too kind a word for him. He piously, like the Pharisees, denounces abortion while making a pile of cash off the abortion pill. He’s opposed to gambling, but shocked that he has slot machine stock. Hackwell puts the “H” in political “ho” and puts the “J” in Judas. So yes, join the campaign. J. Kenneth Hackwell, the J is for Judas.
The religious community may yet see the light and the Lord sayeth, “You’re being played.”
