HFFT supports Hoosiers For Honesty in Government Rally at Obama's Indiana HQ

Boston Legal ran a timely episode last night that explored litigation against the DNC for allowing a super delegate to cast a vote for a presidential candidate that did not win the popular vote. It also explored the purchase of super delegate's votes by presidential candidates. It is our position that Andre Carson was bought by Senator Obama in exchange for use of the Carson Machine politics, as described in the Wall Street Journal article we re-published yesterday.

HFFT' asserts that if the the two parties desire to cast votes for the people's presidential candidates via delegates, it should do so without forcing the taxpayers to foot the enormous bill for primary elections.

Many of America's taxpayers are independent or third-party voters and it is immoral to force these taxpayers to foot the bill so that two private organizations can sort out who they want to run for office. These independent voters are not represented by the primaries.

HOOSIERS FOR HONESTY IN GOVERNMENT, the influential local PAC that helped end Bart Peterson's eight year reign as Mayor, organized a rally tomorrow (and everyday thereafter) at Obama's Indianapolis Headquarters.

Here is the press release we received:

WHO: Supporters of the 7th Congressional District candidates
WHAT: Rally
WHY: To Request Senator Obama withdraw his endorsement of Candidate Andre Carson
WHEN: Friday, May 2, 2008, 12:00pm and everyday thereafter until the November election
WHERE: Obama Volunteer Headquarters, 2 N Meridian St. Indianapolis, IN.

If you are supporting ANY of the other candidates in this race please join together and respectfully make this public request of Senator Obama:

Dear Senator Barack Obama, As you cast your eyes to our nations Capitol in your bid for the presidency, please take a moment and cast those same eyes toward the leaders of the communities you desire to serve; specifically those leaders currently running for Congress in the 7th Congressional District of Indiana.

Recently elected Congressman Andre Carson, and the Carson political machine, are practicing monarchy with a Congressional seat and are hurting our community and a lot of people.

Senator Obama, please withdraw your endorsement of Andre Carson immediately and rehabilitate each of those candidates by making a public appearance with each of them. These candidates are seeking Congressional seats in our nation's capitol. Their roles are ‘just as significant’ in American politics and American history as is the presidency; they are the foundation of our democratic society.

These candidates have given up so much to run for this office, and for some it has been a very emotional experience. These candidates should be allowed to run without the influence of the 1st formidable black presidential candidate backing the ‘least qualified’ candidate who is slated because of a ‘dying declaration’ from his grandmother to a group of hand-picked precinct committee people to send her ‘seed’ to Congress.

We forgive you if you weren't aware of these details, but now that you are, we respectfully request you withdraw your endorsement of Andre Carson and rehabilitate the remaining formidable candidates before the public.

Warmest regards,
Hoosiers for Honesty in Government, PAC
