"Not the White Man’s B****" Campaign Phrase Rejected

A Wisconsin legislative candidate, Ieshuh Griffin is seeking a federal injunction against the state’s Government Accountability Board for voting to deny her the use of the phrase, “NOT the ‘whiteman’s b—-‘” in her campaign.

Griffin claimed, “the phrase was protected free speech. It’s a freedom of expression. It’s not racial. It’s not a slur.”

The all White board says, “it is pejorative and therefore not allowed,” citing “State law allows independent candidates to have five words describing themselves placed after their names on the ballot as long as it’s not pejorative, profane, discriminatory or includes an obscene word or phrase.”

One woman in attendance spoke up saying, “if a white candidate wanted to have the statement ‘not the black man’s b—-‘ put on the ballot, it would be soundly rejected.”

Griffin is an Independent vying against 3 Democrats.

Oregon’s AG Wants to Destroy More Oregon Business

Don’t act like I never told you.
The people don’t want it. Harry Reid kills cap and tax (for now) to give political cover to Barbara Boxer (who’s in the run of her life from Carly Fiorina) and what happens? The EPA takes over cap & tax (as expected) with the aid of the far left fundamentalist oppressive such as….John Kroger, Oregon AG.

OREGON JOINS LEGAL FIGHT IN SUPPORT OF EPA’S PLAN TO REGULATE LARGE INDUSTRIAL SOURCES OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
Oregon and 12 other states intervene in a lawsuit by oil, steel and chemical companies that challenges the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to regulate greenhouse gas emissions
            Attorney General John Kroger today announced that Oregon has joined a legal fight in support of federal regulation of large industrial sources of greenhouse gas emissions.
“The science is clear. Global climate change harms public health, and the EPA is taking the right approach by focusing on the big sources of pollution,” said Attorney General Kroger.
Last year, EPA Director Lisa P. Jackson departed from the Bush Administration’s longstanding refusal to embrace widely accepted scientific findings that greenhouse gases harm the environment and public health. Since then, the EPA has taken steps to begin addressing the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the country by requiring permits for the largest industrial sources.   
In response, a group backed by oil, steel and chemical industries filed a lawsuit challenging the EPA’s authority to regulate carbon emissions under the U.S. Clean Air Act.
Oregon and 12 other states today intervened on behalf of the EPA’s position.
Attorney General John Kroger leads the Oregon Department of Justice. The Department’s mission is to fight crime and fraud, protect the environment, improve child welfare, promote a positive business climate, and defend the rights of all Oregonians.
