Activist Group Takes Delaware Governor John Carney to Task for Paranoid “Cease-And-Desist” Orders

Dear Friends,
When I hear stories like the one below, I have to shake my head. When Delaware Governor John Carney is so paranoid that he sends “Cease and Desist” orders to various radio stations and media outlets airing negative ads, he is trampling all over people’s First Amendment rights. He’s bullying his political enemies with censorship. 
Look folks, everyone knows this is a blue state with Joe Biden on the top of the election ticket, which makes it much tougher to create change, but change is needed. A message needs to be sent to let the politicians know we’re not OK with the status quo, so get out there and vote. Vote how you want, but the message is clear: We won’t tolerate keeping things the way they have been, especially in our judicial system.
Please scroll down and read the article. Your comments are welcome and appreciated.
Respectfully yours,
JUDSON Bennett-Coastal Network

Ad Campaign Targets Carney’s Cease-and-Desist Order

By WGMD News October 28, 2020
Citizens for Transparency and Inclusion, a Delaware-based Political Action Committee, is airing a new aid that criticizes Governor John Carney for his campaign’s attempt to get media outlets to stop running a recent CTI ad.
The previous ad was critical of the pardon of Barry Croft Junior, one of the suspects who was recently arrested in an alleged conspiracy to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Carney signed off on the pardon which was approved by the Delaware Board of Pardons. The ad also stated that Croft was pardoned within the past year, while this year he refused calls to commute the sentences of Delaware prison inmates who were at risk of COVID-19.
With just a week before voters head to the polls, it’s more important than ever that First State residents know the extent of Governor Carney’s failures of Delaware’s most vulnerable communities, including inmates, low-income Delawareans, and people of color,” Citizens for Transparency and Inclusion spokesman Chris Coffey said.
Citizens for Transparency and Inclusion describes itself as a political action committee “that promotes transparency, accountability, diversity and inclusion in Delaware’s state government and court systems.”
