VICTORY: Voter Intimidation Billboards Taken Down in Ohio

voterfraud1

When Clear Channel-owned billboards stating “Voter Fraud is a Felony” appeared in African-American and Latino neighborhoods in Cleveland, it was clear they were designed to intimidate minority voters from casting legal votes. In response, voting rights groups demanded that Clear Channel take them down immediately. Rashad Robinson of the organization Color of Change┬ástarted a MoveOn Petition, and a widespread outcry from community activists pushed Clear Channel to take down the billboards. Clear Channel donated billboards around Cleveland that read “Voting is Not a Crime.”
