Hoosiers For Honesty In Government Calls On Obama To Withdraw Carson Endorsement
Hoosiers for Honesty In Government PAC released a letter it sent to Sen. Barack Obama urging him to withdraw his endorsement of 7th District U.S. Rep. Andre Carson in the hotly-contested 4-way primary race. Carson and the Carson political machine "are practicing monarchy with a congressional seat and are hurting our community and a lot of people" the letter said. The letter asks Obama to "rehabilitate" the other Democratic candidates in the race by appearing with each of them. "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," the letter reads. The group is planning a rally this Friday, May 2 at 12:00 Noon at Obama's campaign headquarters in downtown Indianapolis at 2 N. Meridian.
