Ohio Redistricting Amendment Coverup
The group Voters First Ohio, is coming under fire from Tea Party representatives. Voters First Ohio is 130,000 signatures short of the 385,253 valid signatures that they need to get the Redistricting Amendment to the Ohio Constitution on the ballot in November. However, they have until July 28th to “cure” their deficit.
Many of the petitions they have turned in show that they are getting a significant number of Republican and independents signing the petition, mostly by mis-representing what the Amendment is to those they are soliciting for signatures. In what appears to be typical Sal Alinsky tactics, they are actually telling people that this petition is endorsed by the TEA Party and the NRA and other conservative groups. David Langdon of Protect Your Vote is trying to get the word out to everyone in the Tea Party movement to tell them NOT to sign this petition.
The Tea Party movement is not happy about the way redistricting is currently being done in Ohio. They want reform, but say that this is not the way to do it.” This is a take over of the redistricting process by the Unions.” according to Tom Zawistowski.
They are asking Republicans and Tea Party members if approached by these “volunteer” petitioners to not sign the petition.
