    Ohio Democrats Accuse Locals of Being Racist Toward Obama
    Race; Posted on: 2008-09-16 01:13:39 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    A local Republican official is shocked by the Democratic legislators’ comments.

    And If Obama Loses?

    With John McCain and Sarah Palin in the Mahoning Valley today for a rally, two local Democratic state legislators said they believe a main reason polls show a tight race is because of racist voters.

    “Race — that’s the only reason people in the Valley won’t vote for him,” said state Rep. Thomas Letson of Warren, D-64th, about Barack Obama, his party’s presidential nominee. “There are 1,000 reasons to vote for Obama and one reason why you won’t — race.”

    “Staunch Republicans” who make up 35 percent to 40 percent of the population would never vote for a Democrat regardless of race, Letson said.

    It is the independents, the “swing voters” and Democrats who are or will support Republican John McCain who are the “racists,” Letson and state Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, said.

    The comments were made Monday with the pair criticizing McCain, a U.S. senator from Arizona, and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, his vice presidential running mate.

    When told of the comments from Hagan and Letson, Mark Munroe, the Mahoning Republican vice chairman, said he was shocked.

    “These guys have gone off the deep end,” he said. “This is probably the most absurd and disgusting comment we’ve heard from our elected Democratic legislators.”
