Want $1000?? Help Stop This BIG White Media Lie!

WANT TO EARN $1000???

Yesterday, Bishop Bobby Hilton said he is so tired of reading a certain lie in the white press he's considering giving $1000 to anyone who can provide proof that the lie is true.

Here's The Big Lie from Kimball Perry and The Cincinnati Enquirer:
Hunter ... was convicted Oct. 14 of having an unlawful interest in a public contract. She used her position as a judge to get documents, including medical and mental information, on a teen inmate punched in the face by Steven Hunter, a juvenile court worker and Hunter's brother. He later gave those documents, which are protected by federal and state privacy laws, to his attorney to help him in the disciplinary process. 
We can all have our own opinions, we can't have our own facts. The Enquirer and Fox 19 have been the main propagandists who've spread this lie far and wide.

- Where's the proof Judge Hunter used her position as a judge to get documents, including medical and mental information, on a teen inmate punched in the face by Stephen Hunter?

- What evidence was produced at trial showing Judge Hunter gave her brother a teen's medical and mental information?

- Where's the proof that Stephen received the teen's medical and mental info from Judge Hunter and later gave those documents, which are protected by federal and state privacy laws, to his attorney Janaya Trotter Bratton to help him in his disciplinary proceeding?

I hope Bishop Bobby puts the money up and shuts down the liars JODY BARR and KIMBALL PERRY.

I also hope his reward will cause some people to lose their jobs.

Help end the lies spread by Gannett, The Enquirer,  Carolyn Washburn,  Kimball Perry, and Fox 19.

Ohio Supreme Court Ignores Cincy JURY FIXING!!!

Maureen O'Connor / Walter Novak

Republican Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor oversees one of the most corrupt court systems in America! The Cincinnati Black Blog has learned she's looking the other way as juries are fixed in Hamilton County/Cincinnati by the son of a prominent Republican attorney and state senator, who donates large sums of money to Republican judges and the county prosecutor. Jury Fixing may require thousands of jury decisions to be reviewed and cost county taxpayers millions of dollars.

During the sham criminal trial of Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter in Judge Norbert Nadel's Kangaroo KKKourtroom, assistant prosecutor KKKatie PRIDEmore testified under oath that O'Connor (or one of her flunkies) ordered her to watch Judge Hunter. The trial was used to nullify the votes of over 100,000 people and remove Judge Hunter from her duly elected office.

The Republican judges in Hamilton County are running a blatantly illegal jury fixing scheme. Ohio law requires the judges of the Court of Common Pleas to appoint TWO "commissioners of jurors" or Jury Commissioners. They can't be of the same political party -- meaning one has to be a Democrat. They have specific powers and duties related to the selection, drawing, and summoning of jurors. THE JURY COMMISSIONERS ARE THE ONLY ONES AUTHORIZED BY LAW TO SELECT PEOPLE FOR GRAND OR TRIAL JURIES.

In Cincinnati, the judges have ignored the law. Instead of appointing two jury commissioners they've appointed one jury coordinator. There is no such thing in the law as a jury coordinator but that hasn't stop the judges from creating one. (And they claimed Judge Hunter disobeyed the law. She never did anything like this!)

Powerful Republican State Senator Bill Seitz's son, Bradley Seitz is the jury coordinator. Brad has a chat with every prospective juror. He put Sandra L. Kirkham on Judge Hunter's jury. Records show Sandy KKKirkham gave money to Sen. Seitz. Brad doesn't just put his father's campaign contributors on juries, our review of court records shows he routinely stacks juries with Republicans, mostly from the suburbs and townships.

Judge Nadel (known on this blog as The Devil In A Blue Dress) and the other common pleas court judges don't give a damn about the law. They do whatever they want. They don't think anyone can stop them. They've been right thus far. The county prosecutor, Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters (legal name Joseph Theodore Deters), has done nothing to force the judges to comply with the law. That's probably because he's a Republican and likes having fixed juries packed with Republicans.

Maureen O'Connor and the Ohio Supreme Court have ultimate oversight over the common pleas court but they haven't addressed the jury fixing problem in Hamilton County. To the contrary, Maureen has politicized the courts and used them as a weapon to defeat Democrats the Republicans can't beat at the ballot box. Not only did Maureen personally participate in the railroading of Judge Hunter, since she's been on the court they've executed a War on Women judges whose casualties include former Franklin County/Columbus Domestic Relations Judge Carole H. Squire and Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Angela Stokes.

The Cincinnati Black Blog would be shocked if defense attorneys who've had jury trials in Hamilton County didn't demand new trials for their clients. Such a review might cost the county millions. (We don't expect the worthless Public Pretender, Ray Faller, to seek justice for poor people who were represented by his office and cheated by the judges and "jury coordinator".

Sadly, Democrats in the county -- including party chairman Tim Burke, County Commissioner Todd Portune, and Democratic judges on the common pleas court -- have been silent on this issue of importance to Black people and justice-loving white people. The Cincinnati Black Blog reached out to party big shots for comment. We are still waiting for their responses.

SCANDAL! Deters Steered $500K Tax Dollars To His Divorce Lawyer's Firm


Disgraced former Ohio Treasurer and current Republican Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Theodore Deters is accused of committing multiple crimes including using his political office to steer a no-bid contract worth more than $500,000 to his divorce attorney's law firm, and fraudulently misusing campaign funds and a campaign-related credit card to pay for personal items, including, possibly, meals, entertainment, and multiple hotel stays with his mistress.

The first accusation stems from Joseph T. Deters -- Hamilton County's top law enforcement officer who was previously known on this blog as "Dirty Joe" Deters but who is now known as Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters -- requesting his flunky, Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Beth Ann Myers, appoint Merlyn "The Evil Magician" Shiverdecker and Robert Scott Croswell III to act as Special Prosecutors against Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie M. Hunter.  Judge Myers rubber stamped the request.  The appointment resulted in Croswell and his business partner, Gregory Louis Adams, of Croswell & Adams CO., LPA, being paid $500,000 by Hamilton County taxpayers.  More money is on the way.

No one -- not Democratic County Commissioner Todd Portune, nor County Auditor Dusty Rhodes, nor any of the Democratic judges on the Court of Common Pleas, nor any of the lapdogs in the lazy, inept, incompetent so-called mainstream media -- has questioned what appears to be an illegal scheme to enrich Friends of Dirty Joe through the misuse of public funds.  There ought to be a Special Prosecutor to prosecute the Special Prosecutors and the mastermind behind the schemes -- Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters.

The Cincinnati Black Blog has obtained and reviewed Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters' divorce documents; his campaign finance records (and those of Judge Myers); and donation records for Scott Croswell (known on this blog as the Chris Farley lookalike) and Greg Adams.  We interviewed people who known Deadbeat Deters and who are familiar with the divorce case.  Our investigation is not complete.  Here's what we've found thus far:
  • In 2010, Deters gave Croswell money and in-kind contributions totaling $4,024.
  • On 8/25/2010, Deters gave Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor $500.  According to sworn testimony from assistant prosecutor Katie PRIDEmore, O'Connor and the Ohio Supreme Court instructed her to "watch" Judge Hunter and document her findings.
  • On 1/13/2012, Merlyn gave Deters $250.
  • On 1/17/2012, Judge Norbert Alan Nadel (known on this blog as The Devil In A Blue Dress) gave Deters $250.
  • On 2/10/2012, during a social or fundraising event, Croswell donated $250 to Deters. William Kirkham, husband of Sandra L. Kirkham, was also at that event. He donated $250 to Deters.  Sandy Kirkham aka Sandy Phillips Kirkham LIED UNDER OATH on her juror questionnaire and during voir dire.  She gave money to State Sen. Bill Seitz, the county's jury coordinator's father.  Some people believe Sandy Kirkham used her monetary donations and family clout to get put on Judge Hunter's jury (see this). Once she made it onto the jury, Norbert made sure she became jury foreperson.  Sandy Kirkham reportedly bullied and intimidated Black jurors.  She fixed the trial.  (The Cincinnati Black Blog is investigating whether Sandy Kirkham was at the 2/10/12 fundraising event with Croswell and Deters where William Kirkham gave money to Deters.)
  • On March 20, 2012, Judge Myers gave $150 to Deters.
  • Croswell gave Deters another $250 on 4/23/2012.
  • From Wednesday July 4, 2012 - Saturday July 7, 2012, our sources believe Deters illegally used political campaign contributions to fund a long wild weekend that didn't relate in any way to his political office or any political campaign.  Campaign-related credit cards and political campaign money was spent to rent a vehicle from Enterprise Rent-A-Car and pay for a hotel stay (our sources say with a woman he isn't married to) at the Hampton Inn in Columbus.
  • Melissa Deters has a heart of gold but even she couldn't deal with Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters. Our sources tell us he lied to her.  He cheated on her.  Not only did he misappropriate campaign funds, he also misused family funds. On July 8, 2012, she told him she couldn't take it anymore. She had finally had all she could take and she'd be filing for divorce. Melissa threw Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters out of their family home.  Shortly thereafter she retained James M. Moskowitz as her divorce attorney.
  • While Melissa and Moskowitz prepared the paperwork necessary to start divorce proceedings, Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters executed the final steps in a plan to nullify the voters and railroad Judge Hunter off the bench, while securing public taxpayer money for his divorce lawyer's firm.
  • On 8/20/2012, Norbert kicked $250 into Deters' pot.
  • Merlyn ponied up another $250 for Deters on 8/31/2012.
  • More than a year after she found the courage to toss Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters out of the house, Melissa filed a Complaint for Divorce.  The divorce was filed in the Hamilton County Domestic Relations Court on Nov 22, 2013.  The complaint accuses Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters of Gross Neglect of Duty and incompatibility.  Divorce documents obtained exclusively by The Cincinnati Black Blog reveal Dirty Deadbeat Deters is represented by Croswell's business partner, Greg Adams.
Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters won't adequately provide for his wife and kids (see "Wife to Court: Find Deters in CONTEMPT & MAKE HIM PAY CHILD SUPPORT") but he has steered more than HALF A MILLION DOLLARS to his divorce lawyer's business.

Because we believe court records are public documents when they are filed in public cases that involve public figures and unless a judge has ordered these public court records sealed they should be accessible to the public.  Since no judge has ordered Dirty Deadbeat Dad Deters' divorce records sealed, and we know Deters has publicly expressed his support for public access to public courtrooms and public court records (Deters joined in the attacks against Judge Hunter when she tried to shield juveniles from having their names, faces, and court records released to the public), we are making all of his divorce filings available online for you, our faithful readers.

Thank you for reading The Cincinnati Black Blog.  Please check back for updates on this developing story. Stories we're working on.

  • Why Did Deters Really Get FIRED FROM STAN CHESLEY'S Law Firm?

Wife to Court: Find Deters in CONTEMPT & MAKE HIM PAY CHILD SUPPORT

Republican Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Theodore Deters is a DEADBEAT DAD who has violated a judge's order and should be held in CONTEMPT OF COURT and forced to immediately bring his child support current.

That's according to an official court filing obtained by The Cincinnati Black Blog.  We are exclusively reporting that a filing by Melissa Hendon Deters states Joeseph T. Deters -- the county's top law enforcement officer -- has violated a judge's order to PAY THE PROPER AMOUNT of CHILD SUPPORT, or attend MANDATORY parenting education class, or pay for his son's school tuition.

This guy thinks he's ABOVE THE LAW.

Here's a summary.  Joe Deters makes almost $300,000 a year. His wife put up with his shenanigans for as long as she could. Now's she's suing him. The judge handling the case ORDERED Dirty Joe Deters to pay Melissa child support and spousal support. It's a modest amount.

Dirty Joe Deters is apparently wining and dining other women using money he's ordered to give to his wife and children. (He's reportedly tricking with the daughter of a prominent Cincinnati lawyer.) It's a DISGRACE!!!

Anyway, Dirty Joe went to court and cried broke. He told the judge HE'D BEEN FIRED BY STAN CHESLEY and couldn't pay the original amount. The judge REDUCED the amount. Dirty Joe still didn't pay.  Melissa had no choice but to ask the judge to find him in contempt.

The court is asked to find Dirty Joe in contempt and make him immediately bring his support current.  She wants him to ordered to PAY THE PROPER AMOUNT OF CHILD SUPPORT, attend mandatory parenting education class, and pay for his son's school tuition.

WITHOUT SPECIAL WHITE PRIVILEGE DIRTY JOE DETERS WOULD BE JAILED

You, our faithful readers, know that any average man in this situation would be threatened with JAIL TIME.  They put Black men in court for this stuff every single day!!!  Some concerned citizens have told us they are considering pressuring Judge Lewis to STOP GIVING DIRTY JOE DETERS SPECIAL FAVORS & SEND HIM TO JAIL if he continues disobeying lawful court orders.

If the lazy, local, mainstream white media wasn't so damned racists and prejudiced, they'd report this motion for contempt (this is actually the second contempt motion filed in the case) with as much ferocity as they reported the motion to find Judge Tracie Hunter in contempt.

Here's an official and unedited copy of the motion. (Some people have told us they can only see the first page of documents we post. You have to click the link to read all 3 pages of the motion for contempt.)

Judge Ethna Cooper's Son In Federal Prison For Child Pornography

Peter Bennert Cooper
The lazy lowdown dirty racist bastards in the pathetic, worthless, corporate-owned media in Cincinnati never hesitate to report negative stories about Black people, especially when the Black people hold positions of power, but they won't tell you, the people, about Peter Bennert Cooper who got busted uploading CHILD PORNOGRAPHY from an internet account inside the home of his mother, Republican Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Ethna Marie Cooper, and is currently locked away for five (5) years in Elkton Federal Prison in Lisbon, Ohio.  According to a court document filed by Hal Roger Arenstein, Peter Cooper "continues to be involved in an arduous regiment of treatment for substance abuse and sexual/behavior therapy." Substance abuse and sexual misbehavior. That's the nice way to describe it.

The same unethical and biased white media that refuses to publish the name of the jury foreman who lied under oath and committed perjury in the sham trial of Judge Tracie Hunter (that woman's name is Sandra L. Kirkham) also won't tell you that Judge Ethna Cooper's son was represented in federal court by Robert Scott Croswell III -- the Chris Farley look-alike and appointed special prosecutor in the Hunter case.

Judge Ethna Cooper is the court's administrative and presiding judge. Brad Seitz, is the son of powerful Republican State Senator William John Seitz III (most people just call him Bill Seitz).  The Republican judges appointed Brad Seitz to be the court's Jury Coordinator.  (Talk about nepotism.)  Sandy Kirkham's family gave money to Brad Seitz's father. They also gave money to Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Theodore Deters (known on this blog as Dirty Joe Deters). Then, somehow, out of 800,000 people in Hamilton County, this woman somehow got picked to be on Judge Hunter's jury and to be the jury foreperson.

The Cincinnati Black Blog's founder and publisher, Nathaniel Livingston, Jr., has asked to inspect and copy all juror questionnaires from the Hunter trial. The responsibility for administering the jury system is vested in Brad Seitz under the supervision of Judge Cooper and the court's administrator Patrick Xavier Dressing.  Seitz, Dressing, Cooper, and Judge Norbert Nadel (known on this blog as The Devil In A Blue Dress) have all denied his request.  He is preparing a lawsuit to be filed against them all.

[Important side note: you, our faithful readers, know an awful lot of white folks have talked trash about Judge Hunter denying them access to her courtroom, and public court records, but white judges have no problem denying the Black Press access to court records.  You haven't heard a peep from the white media about this.  They certainly aren't fighting to give the people and the press any information they believe may be damaging to the greater white community.]

Supervising Brad Seitz isn't Judge Cooper's only duty (then again she apparently couldn't supervise her own son to keep him from using illegal substances and/or uploading child pornography from insider her home, using her internet account, so how could she be expected to handle her official court duties).  She is also responsible for administering the oath to grand jurors, instructing them on their duties and the law governing their service, and questioning grand jurors about their eligibility for jury duty.

The Cincinnati Black Blog seeks to find out what role, if any, Judge Cooper played in the grand jury that indicted Judge Hunter. Did she instruct them on their duties? Explain the law governing their service?  Tell them they weren't there to be a rubber stamp?  We realize Sandy Kirkham wasn't on the grand jury, but she was still supposed to be questioned about her eligibility to serve on a jury.  She should've disclosed monetary contributions given by her family to Dirty Joe and the jury coordinator's father.  We want to know if Judge Cooper participated in a conspiracy to bring bogus charges against Judge Hunter or if she looked the other way as Judge Hunter was railroaded.  We want to know if she did any of these things in exchange for keeping the story about her son quiet or to keep herself from being indicted or for some other reason.  We want to know everything that happened and why. When we find out we won't let pressure or threats stop us from reporting our findings.

We've talked to people who know Judge Cooper.  They've all told us she's a really nice white lady who loves her son.  She wants her son to have a future when he gets out of prison.  Before he went to prison, she tried to get the federal judge to let him take classes at Xavier University and assured the judge he wouldn't be around any minor children.  Judge Cooper didn't want her son's name and picture plastered all over local newspapers and broadcast on TV stations.

Some people say Judge Cooper felt about her son the same way Judge Hunter felt about Black kids appearing before her in Juvenile Court.  But the evil, black-hearted devils in the media, especially Margaret Buchanan, Carolyn Washburn, and Kimball Perry from The Cincinnati Enquirer and Richard A. BoehneJeff Jeff Brogan and Alex Bongiorno from Scripps/WCPO-TV (Channel 9) were hellbent on trying to ruin Black kids for engaging in a little fist fight.  They were so determined to cover the case and sensationalize the story, they defied Judge Hunter's orders, violated the court rules, and even sued the judge.  Of course, they say race has nothing to do with their decisions.  To them, nothing is ever about race.  But if race had nothing to do with their coverage of that story, and it has nothing to do with their constant barrage of negative stories on Black people, why haven't they told this true story?

That said, we are greatly concerned about Judge Cooper.  We are concerned Judge Cooper may be susceptible to threats from Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Theodore Deters (known on this blog as Dirty Joe Deters) and his gang of thugs, which includes Scott Croswell, Merlyn D(ickhead) Shiverdecker (aka Merlyn The Evil Magician) and several people working for the local media.  This once good woman may now be a GOP stooge...a patsy...a bag lady who handles their dirty work, assists with their schemes, and covers up their crimes.
  • How is it that child pornography was uploaded from inside Judge Cooper's home, from an internet account she pays for, but she didn't get charged with a crime?
  • How come none of her property was seized or forfeited?
  • How is it that the law & order Republican Party didn't distance themselves from Judge Cooper -- a woman who had child pornography and apparently illegal drugs inside her home?  We are reviewing campaign finance reports and want to know if GOP heavy weights continued to fund her campaign and where she donated money to.
  • How is it that even after this crime took place (Peter Bennert Cooper was arrested on 10/09/2011 and charged with ARSON & UNDERAGE CONSUMPTION) the Democratic Party bosses Tim Burke and Caleb Faux fielded no candidate to run against Judge Cooper?
  • What kind of favors does she owe Dirty Joe, Croswell, and the gang?
  • What does she owe Judge Penelope Ruth Cunningham and her husband William Daniel Cunningham?  How is it that Bill Cunningham or Willie -- 700WLW's chief hatemonger -- can talk about dysfunction in the Black community for hours every day and blame poor Black parents for their children's shortcomings but he has yet to speak on Judge Cooper's parenting skills. (Judge Cooper sent Peter Cooper to one of the best schools in the country.  They're very wealth.)
Judge Nadel has threatened Livingston and falsely accused him of engaging in the unauthorized practice of law -- a crime in Ohio.  The goal of The Devil In A Blue Dress in making these threats was to scare Livingston and stop him from writing about corruption in and around the courthouse.

Before any of you bleeding heart liberals or rage-filled conservatives complain we aren't playing fair, or family members should be off limits, or he's just a kid, we want to remind you of a few things. 1) Judge Hunter's brother, Stephen Hunter, wasn't off limits.  2) We have not forgot that Wende Morris Cross was in line to become a U.S. Magistrate Judge but that appointment was scuttled when investigators discovered she was married to Marcus Timothy Cross -- a convicted felon. 3) The kids from North College Hill who were involved in a little fist fight were just kids but they were tarnished. 4) White kids and young adults in Cincinnati/Hamilton County are always getting a break. When is Dirty Joe going to charge the Joseph Poynter with a crime. Little Joe is the white kid who took a loaded gun into La Salle High School and fired it.  From what we know, Dirty Joe has still not charged Little Joe with a crime.  Black people are catching Hell.  Black family members are brought into it all the time. Its not right or fair but the white media does it all the time and we won't stop it until they do. In fact, Republicans spend time coming up with parental responsibility laws to punish Black parents. Republicans push laws that throw mothers out of their homes if their children get caught breaking the law.  Republicans are always pushing to blame parents for the sins of their children.  Judge Cooper is an official part of that system.  She takes money from that system.  She has refused to do the right and lawful and honorable thing and give all people full and unfettered access to the courts and the people's records located at the court.  We want those juror questionnaires and we want justice!

Without White Privilege everyone would know about Peter Bennert Cooper. Part of our job is to level the playing field.

Tracie Hunter Juror Sandra Kirkham's Letter To Editor

Hunter Jury Foreperson Sandra L. Kirkham (aka Sandy Phillips Kirkham)
Damage from abuse can linger for a lifetime

Regarding the article "Abuse victims lose 'look-back'" (March 29): Thirty-four years ago, at age 17, I was sexually abused by my minister. I was not his first victim, nor his last. After his actions were discovered he moved to another church. His sexual abuse continued as he moved from church to church, even as his supervisors were aware of his past. He is currently a minister.

Being abused by someone you trust so completely in a place that should be the safest place on Earth has a lifelong impact. I never talked to anyone about what he did to me until two (years) ago when I found the courage to confront him.

Without the "look back" provision, these abusers who still remain within the church are free to repeat their behavior. The actions of the legislature are disappointing, but the failure of church leaders to remove these known and suspected abusers is appalling.

Sandy Kirkham Bought Seat On Hunter Jury


How did Sandra L. Kirkham (aka Sandy Phillips Kirkham) get on the jury for Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter? How did she become jury foreperson?

If you think that's a simple question, you might be surprised to learn what The Cincinnati Black Blog found.

Sandy Kirkham and her husband, William Kirkham, gave money to the jury coordinator's family and more money to Republican Prosecuting Attorney Joseph Theodore Deters (known on this blog as "Dirty Joe" Deters).
  • On 10/1/2010, Sandy Kirkham gave $250 to Republican State Senator William J. Seitz. (source)
  • On 2/10/2012, William Kirkham gave $250 to Dirty Joe Deters. 
Earlier today, Judge Hunter's attorney, Clyde Bennett II, filed a motion for a new trial based on misconduct by Sandy Kirkham.  Dyer v. Calderon is quoted in the motion. That case says:
The individual who lies in order to improve his chances of serving has too much of a stake in the matter to be considered indifferent.  Whether the desire to serve is motivated by an overactive sense of civic duty, by a desire to avenge past wrongs, by the hope of writing a memoir or by some other unknown motive, this excess of zeal introduces the kind of unpredictable factor into the jury room that the doctrine of implied bias is meant to keep out."
Kirkham lied on her juror questionnaire and during voir dire. She was asked if she has been a victim of crime. She did not answer affirmatively. But documents have been found showing she claims to have been raped by her minister. Did Sandy Kirkham lie in order to improve her chances of serving on the jury? Was her desire motivated by an overactive sense of civic duty? Did she seek to avenge past wrongs, like punishing Judge Hunter, a church leader, minister, and pastor, for sins committed by a minister against her? These things will be decided by Judge Norbert Nadel (referred to on this blog as The Devil In A Blue Dress).

The focus of this blog entry is the money that changed hands from the Kirkhams to Sen. Seitz and Dirty Joe Deters.

Normally, during voir dire, prospective jurors are asked if they know anyone involved in the case or working at the courthouse. Prospective jurors are precluded from serving on a jury if they know someone involved in the case or if they have connections to anyone involved in the case.

Did Sandy Kirkham disclose her financial contribution to Sen. Seitz?

Here's why the donation is relevant.  Sen. Seitz has a son named Brad Seitz.  Brad is employed as Hamilton County's Jury Coordinator.  The Jury Coordinator is intimately involved in forming the jury pool.  In Judge Hunter's case, Brad Seitz has refused to make all juror questionnaires available to inspection and copying.  The $250 donation from Sandy Kirkham went to the Jury Coordinator's father.

Brad Seitz had a duty to inform Judge Nadel and both parties of the political contribution.  Sandy Kirkham also had a duty to notify the court and attorneys that she'd given money to Brad Seitz's father.

The Cincinnati Black Blog realizes we have many detractors, especially in the lazy, white, racially-biased local media.  We know that even among you, our faithful readers, there are some skeptics. Before you dismiss this news as irrelevant or immaterial, consider this.... The U.S. Census estimates there are over 800,000 people in Hamilton County.  To be eligible for jury duty, one must be a registered voter. Sen. Seitz and Dirty Joe Deters have less than 1000 different campaign contributors.  What are the changes that out of over 800K people, the person selected to be on the jury as foreperson happened to be one of the people who gave money to the Jury Coordinator's father and her husband gave money to vindictive Dirty Joe Deters? What's the probability of that happening?

Norbert Nadel has messed Judge Hunter's case up. He's an old, incompetent fool. But these errors were done deliberately.  They fixed the jury and did everything possible to deny Judge Hunter a fair trial. Judge Nadel should grant Judge Hunter a new trial and immediately thereafter recuse himself and have no further involvement.  The Ohio Supreme Court should appoint a visiting judge to the case.

Read Hunter's Motion for New Trial Based On Juror Misconduct

Read the motion filed by Judge Tracie Hunter today requesting a new trial based on misconduct of jury foreperson Sandra Kirkham (we've settled on referring to her on this blog as Sandy KKKirkham).

Vanessa Jones Enoch says this: "Sandra Kirkham lied on her juror questionnaire and had a personal vendetta against pastors, after being raped by a pastor.  She also donated money to Joe Deters and to the jury commissioners father. Was Judge Hunter framed"

We'll have much more on this....
