Why Cuyahoga County voters should not vote for corrupt and racist Tim McGinty for county prosecutor to prosecute innocent Blacks, others

E-mail Print PDF

CLEVELAND, Ohio-Former Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Tim McGinty, also a former assistant county prosecutor, is a candidate for county prosecutor in the Democratic Primary whom community activists are calling the Black community's greatest nightmare and a detriment to the Democratic process (Editor's note: McGinty resigned as the first judge presiding over the Anthony Sowell Serial Killer Capital Murder Case for impropriety. He was a tyrant on the bench who harassed Blacks, women, community activists, other minorities and his own judicial colleagues. He put former Cleveland NAACP Executive Director Stanley Miller as a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury Foreman to push grand jury indictments of felony criminal charges against Blacks for the state of Ohio that other grand juries would not indict).

The Cuyahoga County Democratic Party decided not to endorse any of the five candidates for county prosecutor including Subodh Chandra, whom a cadre of community activists have endorsed.

Regardless, community activists say that the worst and most dangerous candidate to the Black community and others is Tim McGinty.

E-mail Print PDF

ROCKY RIVER-Ohio- Judith Pugley, a retired professional and supporter of Civil Rights, wrote Cleveland Urban News.Com and The Kathy Wray Coleman online News Blog.
