Clear Channel: Take Down These Billboards

    1. Petition by

      Curtis Scruggs with ColorOfChange

I'm a resident of Cleveland, Ohio and I work every day with ex-offenders on their re-entry to society. I am shocked that Clear Channel, owned by Bain Capital, is running an anonymous ad in my community designed to scare people from voting. I've learned that these billboards are only appearing in Black and Latino communities in Ohio and Wisconsin.      

As a private company, Clear Channel has rejected billboard ads many times in the past. But, they didn't refuse to run these billboards that are clearly designed to intimidate voters. Clearly, these ads are part of a coordinated right-wing attack on the voting rights of people of color. Please join my friends at ColorOfChange.org in demanding that Clear Channel immediately take down these offensive and dangerous billboards.

      The real crooks are ignored but societal victims are punished instead.

      Clear Channel has long been known to be a right-wing company. You can b.s. all you want, but Obama's going to win this election despite your attempts to suppress voters in ethnic neighborhoods.

      Lets prove these Republicans to be the liars they are, SHOW UP IN DROVES TO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA. Be careful to ask at your polling station which machines are owned by Tagg Romney because they apparently bought up a bunch in Ohio in order to cheat Americans again. Romney show your taxes and prove yourself to Americans, until you do, everything you say sounds like a lie. If your party has to so blatently lie and cheat to win, they must not have much confidence in him.

      These billboards clearly show the extent to which the Repblicans, including Mitt Romney, will go to win. They want to win for themselves and their rich friends. They have no interest in helping improve the lives of ordinary people. They only want more money to be funneled to the top. It is greed, plain and simple. It is disgusting. Do what you know is the right thing to do - remove those signs. If you are afraid of the GOP, who is going to stand up to them?
