(from an email):

In a new twist, Republican Gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell has distributed emails to his supporters using Libertarian candidate Bill Peirce’s campaign theme, “Freedom to Prosper”.

Check out Bill Pierce’s website to see for yourself. I thought it was the Dems standing around with no message? I guess the Blackwell folks are not content to stand around so they went out and stole a message.

Recent emails from Blackwell’s campaign team notes, “I believe that government should give people the freedom to prosper.” and continues to say “Ken Blackwell believes that no government has taxed their way into prosperity, and will seek an agenda that gives Ohioans the -freedom to prosper- by restricting government spending and letting you keep more of your own money.”

“We’re glad that Mr. Blackwell agrees so strongly with the Libertarian Party on this issue,” states a surprised Robert Butler, Executive Director of the LP of Ohio. “I just didn’t know he would take his campaign theme directly from our website.”
