OH's Sec of State Blackwell in Trouble
ColumbusDispatch: "Despite one-sided charges, both GOP candidates for Gov have taken campaign cash from those they awarded no-bid state contracts, records show. J. Kenneth Blackwell has criticized rival Jim Petro repeatedly in recent wks for using lawyers who received unbid specialcounsel work from the attorney general’s office as a "fundraising ATM." But a Dispatch analysis shows Blackwell has taken 1000s of dollars in contributions over time from vendors who got no-bid work from the secretary of state’s office under his control. Blackwell's response to the proof?: "Hogwash. I think that sums it up." Well, Blackwell, the Rev Rod Parsley & all of the Religious Fright praying in the world can't wash you clean of these sins. Besides, I thought bearing false witness and lying were no-no's in the Bible?
