Well, that didn't sit well with many. And someone spoke up. But it wasn't who Redfern may have been suspecting.
Instead, it was Democratic State Senator, and African-American, Ray Miller.
Redfern may want to tread lightly. After Ohio was labeled by Larry Sabato as "Democrats' biggest black-eye state", Redfern has to already be feeling the heat.
Add this onto the somehow-still-going-on fiasco with getting checks to their "volunteers". From yesterday's Dispatch:
The Ohio Democratic Party says it is resolving cases in which checks paid to people by a vendor for get-out-the-vote work for the Nov. 2 election bounced.A software glitch that has lasted a month? Yeah, right.
The party hired a vendor that subcontracted with Washington D.C.-based Lancer Group to hire and pay more than 2,000 canvassers statewide. But some checks bounced when the workers tried to cash them.
Sandy Theis, a spokeswoman for the Lancer Group, blamed the problem on funds not being deposited to the proper accounts because of a software glitch at the company.
The embarrassments keep piling up. And when you see major players in your own Party publicly calling out their Chairman, that means things are bad. After all, someone with Sen. Miller's experience wouldn't take this mess public unless he was privately pushed back by Redfern.
Not smart, Chairman. Not smart.
