The State of Ohio has a bigot/racist on their hands and don't know what to do with him. It is business as usual with Democrats but Republicans and Independents want him gone, gone from politics. He is a cancer to society. The voters have to decide. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/08/Sherrod-Brown-invokes-Nazis-against-his-Jewish-opponent-Josh-Mandel

Yeah right. Like he ever did in the first place.

Wow. Breitbart? There is a unbiased website. Typical from the Republicans. Nothing but lies since that is all they can run on. Lies and more lies.

tl;dr summary: Black guy says he doesn't use race as a crutch, then spends the rest of the article taking every opportunity to mention he's black and also that he should have gotten contracts from the democrats as a result. Oh, he also complained about "facts" that weren't true. Namely that there was forced union usage for the democratic convention when it was preferred. Kind of silly. Read if you want, but don't come asking me for that 5 minutes of your life back when you get done.
