Kerry Campaign vs. Meetups - Why Have One Campaign When You Can Have Two?
The ham handed imposition of the Kerry Campaign into Ohio continues with typical imcompetence.
Anonymous sources tell the OhioCountdown that Kerry Campaign staff in Cleveland, headed by recently hired coordinator Vel Scott, held a meeting with the heads of the volunteer committees developed by Meetup organizers over the last few months.
At the meeting, Scott and Cuyahoga County Democratic Party officials simply replaced the existing committee heads with new people who've never been involved in the Meetups, ignoring the list of hundreds of volunteers recruited, organized, and active under the Meetup leadership.
Kerry Meetup organizers are continuing to work as they did before, which means that there are now two structures; two volunteers committees, two visibility committees, two speakers bureaus, two fundraising committees, two voter registration committees, etc.
Two Kerry campaigns in Cleveland...one that's existed for months and has functioned on its own without direction with new people, energy, and enthusiasm...and another run by Vel Scott's appointees.
Guess which one will actually do the work........
Compare the "unofficial" Kerry website...
...With the Cuyahoga County Party website
