Republicans claim they’ve discovered a new Biden “scheme,” present no evidence

Zoinks, Scoobs! GOP Rep. James Comer and the gang are back with evidence of a new criminal Biden scheme that, uh, involves business, of some kind, and… money! and maybe China? and…uh, no, no further details at this moment.

300 children found working at 60 McDonald’s restaurants
Three franchisees that own more than 60 McDonald’s locations were caught employing more than THREE HUNDRED children, some as young as ten, in violation of child labor laws. And it gets worse — some were unpaid while others received burns while operating deep fryers during school hours. The cost savings of not paying adult wages through this abusive criminality is substantial for major corporations and, on a surely unrelated note, Republicans are increasingly working to roll back child labor laws. We’re NOT lovin’ it.

Today’s Action: Tell Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine to release wrongfully convicted Keith LaMar!

Death row inmate Keith LaMar is set to be executed November 16th, 2023, despite extensive evidence that he was wrongfully convicted of murder by the state of Ohio. LaMar, imprisoned in 1989 for using deadly force to defend himself against a violent home robbery, was only four years into his sentence when an uprising broke out at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility. The event resulted in the death of a prison guard as well as multiple inmates, and with no one to pin the catastrophe on at the time the state worked as hard as they could to ensure LaMar would take the blame — all to maintain the illusion that they had the situation under control.

Paid informants offered false testimony, evidence of his innocence was intentionally withheld (including a confession to one of the murders from another inmate), and potential Black jurors were intentionally dismissed from hearing the trial. Keith LaMar, an innocent Black man, was sentenced to death by an all-white jury and judge. He has subsequently spent the last 28 years in solitary confinement with no exceptions for good behavior, fighting to keep his indomitable spirit alive.

Write Gov. DeWine and demand that he IMMEDIATELY release LaMar!

In 2011, the Joint Task Force to Review the Administration of Ohio’s Death Penalty asserted “that no one should be indicted, let alone sentenced to death, based solely on the uncorroborated testimony of jailhouse informants.” This is an independent task force of retired judges, attorneys, and college professors that was literally brought together by the Ohio Supreme Court. Based on this recommendation alone, LaMar should NOT be sentenced to death.

LaMar has suffered physical and mental abuse for nearly three decades for a crime he did not commit, thanks to a badly broken, notoriously racist justice system. It’s past time to make it right.

Fill out Gov. DeWine’s “Contact Us” form to call for the immediate release of Keith LaMar, before it’s too late!
