Abolition News Re Executioners Mike DeWine, John Kasich, Greg Abbott, Rick Scott

Please help stop yet another Trump nominated execution supporter, Brett Kavanaugh



Only 5 of 50 US states murdered prisoners this year as of July 28. Four are southern states Florida, Georgia, Alabama (with an allwhite court which has frequently sent black prisoners, some nnocent, to their deaths) and Texas.

Keywords:

OHIO

Once again, Republicans in Ohio, Mike DeWine, attorney general and execution facilitator who defines himself as 'prolife' despite his record in helping Bush 2 invade Iraq, candidate for governor, John Kasich, governor who has somewhere around 16 scalps on his belt, and the GOP dominated Supreme Court have made Ohio the only nonsouthern state to murder prisoners.

In addition, they used midazolam, a drug opposed for execution by its makers. Eric Holder, former US Attorney General, is in Ohio working to end the racist gerrymandering which put Mike DeWine, John Kasich, and Jon Husted (who removed hundreds of thousands of nonRepubicans illegally from the voting rolls) in office.

ALABAMA

This year the all white Alabama "Supreme" Court, continued in 2018 its over 200 years of

racist executions. Alabama has murdered countless innocent black prisoners in that time. This year in bloodlust it sent an 83 year old white man to death after almost 30 years in jail for his crime.When Jeff Sessions was AG of Alabama he worked to execute only blacks.

FLORIDA

Rick Scott, serial killer of prisoners, is the 2nd most prolific executioner in the US. The Republican is running against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson for the Senate.

TEXAS

Most serially killing governor is Greg Abbott of Texas. Voters can dump him in November.

GEORGIA

Voters have the opportunity to vote for a truly qualified governor in November.

Stacey Abrams, graduate of Yale Law School and effective Georgia legislator is running for governor.

US SUPREME COURT

Donald Trump nominated a judicial serial killer to the court. Gorsuch and 4 other Republicans have continued their unconstitutional denial of several

amendments to the Constitution. Republicans reversed the previous Supreme Court decision that executions were unconstitutional. Trump's other nominee Brett Kavanaugh is also in favor of execution.
