KingCast, Blacks, Daily Kos and Case Western Law Grads know Diebold and Ken Blackwell are No Good.

Just ask 1993 CWRU Law Grad Lara Johnson about that brief we wrote as classmates back in 1991 I believe, relative to Allen v. Diebold, 807 F. Supp 1308, as reflected in this post. You see, Diebold is the maker of machines that are, along with Blackwell, now subject to qui tam litigation because they were designed to condone disfranchisement of voters at will (see also Daily Kos stories 1, 2 and 3). In 1991 they had just pulled out of Ohio and left a lot of older, capable employees high and dry in violation of ADEA principles. And ultimately a symPATHETIC court allowed them to get away with it despite the best efforts and formidable skill set of Friedman-Domiano's staff counsel, Ms. Johnson and me, IIRC.

Yet this is the precisely the kind of company in which Goober-natorial candidate Ken Blackwell invested his money, and from which he received a $10,000.00 contribution. Add that to Blackwell's association with Scott Pullins as noted in this "Blacks against Blackwell" post, and I'd say he's living pretty foul -- as he has since before I even met him back in 1988.

Remember: At all relevant points in time, Blackwell held the juxtaposed responsibilities of being Bush/Chaney co-chair and federal elections tzar..... a fact that really should induce vomiting.

KingCast and Justiceforkids: Videos hated by bad judges and politicians everywhere. Wouldn't have it any other way.
