Democrat “Front” Pretends To Be Republican Conservative Organization

leave a comment »

The hyperbole and scare tactics pertained not to the United States Senate race in 2010 but a primary election slated for District 8 on September 12th to replace recently deceased Republican Sen. Jim King. Florida registered Republicans received absentee ballot offers in the mail from the Conservative Voters’ Coalition, a 527 organization that legally hides donor names.

Aaron DeSlatte, an Orlando Sentinel writer reported in Thursday’s edition that in an attempt to provoke fear, anti-Obama, and racist tensions to stay home, the “Conservative Voters’ Coalition” claimed to be a Republican organization, and hyperbolically stated that:
“…the Black Panthers, MoveOn.org, and ACORN might get involved in the District 8 primary on Sept 15. The direct-mail piece warns voters that “armed thugs may try and scare you away from the voting booth.”
 
The mailer pictures photos of President Barack Obama and the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright along with images of militaristic-looking black men with clubs. It makes the accusation that Obama “let the Black Panthers get a free pass for intimidating voters on Election Day” and asks “Is this the change YOU want to believe in? Violence and intimidation at the voting booth.”
Florida Republican Chairman Jim Greer knows who sent the racist mailer and is looking into all legal repercussions.  The racist? Erin DeCesare, a Florida State University student and Democrat.
Di Cesare is a registered Democrat who is listed as chair for the 527 group. She could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Her lawyer, David Ramba, said this week he doesn’t know who was financing the mailers and called Di Cesare — who has no listed phone number — a “front” for the real orchestrator.
Out of the four GOP candidates vying for Senator King’s seat, only one is black, Art Graham, a Jacksonville City Council member.
