Supreme Moore Omokunde - Milwaukee County Board

I wasn't aware that Gwen Moore's son, the one who attempted to disenfranchise citizens and suppress the vote in 2004 by slashing the tires of vans Republicans were going to use to get voters to the polls, wants to be elected to the Milwaukee County Board.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Supreme Solar Allah -- the son of U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore who was convicted of slashing the tires of vans rented by the Republican Party in 2004 -- is running for the 10th District seat on the Milwaukee County Board.

Julietta Henry, the county elections director, said Allah -- whose name will appear on the ballot as Supreme Moore Omokunde -- turned in enough signatures to vie for the seat previously held by Supervisor David Bowen. More than 200 signatures were certified, Henry said.

...In 2006, Allah, 35, was one of four individuals who pleaded no contest to misdemeanor property damage for slashing tires on 25 vans rented by Republicans to take voters to polls for the 2004 presidential election.

He was sentenced to four months in jail, with work-release privileges, and fined $1,000.
Supreme Moore Omokunde/Supreme Solar Allah wants to hold elected office?

The same guy who acted to strip people of their access to the polls?

That is not OK.

I hope people in the 10th District have the decency to reject Supreme.
