Ken Blackwell campaigning illegally
Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell is getting awfully cocky. Last week, he gave a campaign-related interview in the Secretary of State's Office. That's an illegal use of office resources for campaign purposes. The content of the interview is equally disturbing Blackwell says he'd outlaw all abortion if Roe falls, evinces a fondness for country-rappers, and brags about wrestling a bear on reality TV.
Casey of Democracy Cell Project says: "It seems Mr. Blackwell is getting pretty cocky-enough to allegedly hold illegal campaign-related inteviews in his taxpayer-funded office. (When I was both employed by the state and working on a campaign, I couldn't even use the phone in my office to make an interview appointment, let alone hold an interview in my office.)
Steve Gilliard thinks that Blackwell is getting awfully sure of himself, even for a frontrunner: "Only problem, he's gonna lose the primary unless he leads by 20 points going into election day. I mean, it's like Trading Places, "do you think I would let a nigger run our family business?" No matter the qualifications, or the appeal, he has an uphill fight, and his winguttia doesn't help him with moderates, who's votes he sorely needs."
