Below are comments from the article that ran in today's paper regarding the Cincinnati NAACP. Triantafilou the chief agitator and disrupter, wasting millions of tax payer dollars, in the Tracie Hunter case posted the below comments in support of his new BLACK GOP supporter Councilman and NAACP President Christopher Smitherman.
What Triantafilou fails to mention in his comments is that the GOP, him being at the head of the shameless purchase, bought thousands of dollars in NAACP memberships.
Not one of the people that bought memberships to help Smitherman win, showed up at last night's meeting. Want to know why? News flash: They only joined to help Smitherman win.

This attack by Mr. Smitherman's opponents is ridiculous. Can it be said that these forces in the NAACP who oppose him do not honor the results of their very own election? Wasn't Mr. Smitherman properly ELECTED in a democratic process? He was. He won, fair and square. However, those forces who lost at the ballot box (where voters had to show a photo identification, ironically) now want to undermine the results of a validly held election. This fundamentally undermines the very cause of civil rights that this historic institution has fought so hard to defend. Mr. Smitherman has fought for civil rights in our community with great vigor and effectiveness. I've admired his stance on issues of fiscal responsibility and he is a nearly-lone voice for fiscal sanity on a City Council desperately needing a dose of that sanity. I've also occasionally disagreed with him on many political issues along the way, but I recognize that he wants a fully independent NAACP that is not just one more arm of the Democratic Party. It will be interesting to see if the national NAACP honors the results of this local election or if they will act to undermine the will of the voters. As a member of the local NAACP, I'll be watching with interest.
