Jeff Mims- normalizing the culture of corruption

8:10 am my cell phone rings- it’s Jeff Mims. He’s calling, the day before, to tell me that he is organizing a youth voting event tomorrow. One where I can’t speak, I can’t hand out literature, and one where after they vote, he feeds them. This is after having school buses deliver 18 year olds to the RTA Cultural Center, at public expense.

I question both the limits on free speech- he says they can only use whats in the League of Women Voters guide to make their choices, and I question the feeding, because, well, it’s illegal:

Whoever makes or offers to make an expenditure to any person, either to vote (emphasis added) or withhold his vote, or to vote for or against any candidate; and

Whoever solicits, accepts, or receives any such expenditure in consideration of his vote or the withholding of his vote—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

Calling the local FBI office, which promised us more indictments of the “Culture of Corruption” in Dayton, I’m told it’s not a violation.

I bet if I organized an outing where I offered to feed you after you vote, I’d be charged to the hilt.

The belief that the LWV voters guide is somehow a vetted trusted source of info about candidates is criminal in itself. The last time I ran, they spelled my name wrong.

Jeff said he’s been doing this for 9 years. This is not the first time I’ve been on the ballot, however this is the first time I’ve been notified of it in advance by Mr. Mims.

I’m still waiting for the DOJ and the FBI to indict someone other than 3 elected African American men and one restaurateur/mortician as the kingpins of a “culture of corruption” as promised in April.

I know a lot of other people are too. Can we get an official explanation of why no other charges have been brought, or why they lied to us?


less than 10 minutes after publishing this, the FBI and the DOJ announced that they are indicting 3 more people.
