Blackwell Wins, or Steals Ohio GOP Gubernatorial Primary

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   3 comments
Ken Blackwell, a criminal who was one of the prime perpetrators of the theft of the 2004 presidential election, has been confirmed as the Republican candidate for the governorship of Ohio.
RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman commented, "I have often said that the Republican Party -- the Party of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass -- cannot be truly whole until it welcomes more African Americans back home. Great candidates like Ken Blackwell are one of the many ways we are doing exactly that. The Republican Party is united in its support for Ken Blackwell and will work together to ensure his historic election."
What a surprise. The corrupt Republicans pick a despicable, corrupt criminal to use as their African American showpiece. Well, what would we expect, someone with real integrity? We're talking the friends of Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay.

Blackwell ran against his opponent, attorney General Jim Petro, 56% to 44%. Blackwell used attack ads claiming his opponent was a part of "coingate," which has sullied much of Ohio politics.

But Blackwell is known throughout the world as the black man who kept black voters waiting in lines for upwards of eight hours. He is known for paying the man in charge of voting who did what he could, allegedly legal and illegal, which helped give Bush the linchpin Ohio victory which won him the presidency. Among progressives he is reviled as one of the worst criminals of the century. Magnifying the obscenity of this state's sordid election history, Blackwell was in charge of the elections.

Who knows if Blackwell actually won the election of just fixed it, with his access to the technology, the voter eligibility rolls, etc. It would seem to be the logical conclusion to draw, at least from my perspective.

Blackwell's opponent in the November elections will be Democratic U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland, who handily defeated his primary opponent.

This is one race that democrats, progressives and advocates around the nation will want to get involved in. If Ken Blackwell wins the governorship, his corrupt, dirty influence will grow like a cancer.

Ted Strickland is a populist candidate who OpEdNews has mentioned positively before.
