Twas 34 degrees this morning. We got there 30 minutes before the door opened and the line was 40 people deep. We only had to wait 20-30 minutes to vote. By the time we got out, the line was 100 people deep and down the street. There were so many people who had to get special ballots cause their asses moved and never bothered to change their voter registration information.

Mitt Romney Likely To Face Ethics Complaint From UAW For Allegedly Hiding Auto Bailout Profits

Posted: Updated: 11/05/2012 10:24 am EST

The United Auto Workers (UAW), the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and other groups plan to file an ethics complaint against Mitt Romney for allegedly failing to disclose his profits from the auto bailout, the UAW has told The Huffington Post.

The groups are calling for an investigation by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics to investigate Romney's alleged violation of the Ethics in Government Act, which requires presidential candidates to disclose their personal finances. The ethics complaint comes on the heels of an Oct. 17 article in The Nation, which alleged that Romney has hidden his personal gains of at least $15.3 million from the auto bailout.

"He made his fortune off the misfortune of others," Bob King, president of the UAW, told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. "Why should we have to find out from the media about this?"

The Romney campaign could not be immediately reached for comment.

The allegations are ironic given that Romney has been a staunch critic of the auto bailout. Romney called for the government to let the auto industry go bankrupt in an op-ed in The New York Times in 2008. The Romney campaign also released a misleading ad in October that implies Chrysler has moved production of Jeeps to China following the auto bailout.

Romney and his wife allegedly made millions from the auto bailout through their investments in the hedge fund Elliott Management, which held a stake in the auto bailout recipient Delphi Automotive, according to The Nation. The return on this investment amounted to more than 3,000 percent, according to The Nation.

That said, the magazine didn't say that Romney broke the law. From The Nation:

In their 2011 and 2012 Federal Financial Disclosure filing, Ann Romney’s trust lists “more than $1 million” invested with Elliott. This is the description for all of her big investments—the minimal disclosure required by law.

The UAW is holding a press conference on the planned ethics complaint at 2 p.m. on Thursday in Toledo, Ohio.

CLARIFICATION: Language has been changed to characterize more specifically the claims regarding Jeep made in Romney's ad.

These black preacher need to go some where:

This is the same guy who thinks gay men have “to wear a diaper or a ‘butt pl*g’ just to be able to contain their bowels.”

According to Washington Post:

Shortly before noon on Sunday, most of the swaying and singing had subsided at the Upper Room Church of God in Christ in Raleigh, N.C., and the Rev. Patrick L. Wooden began his sermon.

He talked about how the powerful Amaziah tried to intimidate the humble Amos, who warned of the impending doom of Israel. “The people didn’t like [Amos’s] preaching,” Wooden told the 1,600 congregants in attendance. He saw a parable for modern times. “We’ve got a sitting president who supports same-sex marriage, who never met an abortion law he didn’t love,” Wooden preached. “Our definition of marriage doesn’t come from the president or the Constitution. We get our definition of marriage from the creator,” he thundered, and a chorus of “amens” and applause pealed through the cavernous church.

Two days before the presidential election, black preachers across Raleigh were urging all souls to go to the polls, in tacit or overt support for President Obama. But in a state that’s too close to call, Wooden, who is black, was telling his African American congregation not to feel forced to choose between religion and politics, or even race; in that choice, he said, believers must stand on the Word.

In 2008, with more than 4.3 million ballots cast, Obama won North Carolina by about 14,000 votes. The state is a tossup this year, although most surveys show a tie or give Mitt Romney a one- or two-percentage-point advantage. In a state where blacks make up 22.4 percent of registered voters, Wooden’s is a message that could make a difference.

Wooden had been a vocal supporter of Amendment 1, a North Carolina ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage that passed May 8. The Obama campaign said the president was “disappointed” with the amendment and, on May 9, Obama officially endorsed same-sex marriage in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News. After the sermon, Wooden said he wished the president hadn’t inserted himself into North Carolina politics. With high rates of divorce and single motherhood, the black family is in crisis, he had preached. “And you want to add gay marriage to that mix?”

Blacks are taught to live conservatively — get an education, work twice as hard and don’t expect anyone to give anything — but to vote Democratic. He called his message a plea for more political sophistication but not a vote for Romney. He said that he has been accused of taking money from the Romney campaign, but that it has not contacted him. Wooden said Mormon teachings go against his beliefs.

His congregation is not a monolith, and Wooden predicted that on Tuesday, “some won’t vote for either side and some will vote for Obama.” As for Romney? Wooden estimates that the Republican will receive two or three votes from the congregation of about 3,000. He called it a shame. “I think it’s time we let both parties know we’re dateable.”


Take away these "churches" tax-exempt status NOW! Politics does NOT belong on the pulpit!
