Candidate Alleges Racism In NY Senate Race

NEW YORK--Vivia Morgan, who filed 22,000 signatures to run for the U.S. Senate as an Independent with the New York State Board of Elections last week, blasted a legal challenge to the ballot status of New York City Councilperson Charles Barron's Freedom Party, on which Barron is running for Governor. Barron's petitions have been been challenged by former NY City Councilman Lew Fidler.

Morgan is now a legally certified candidate for the U.S. Senate, whose name will appear on the November 2010 ballot. She is the only person of color currently on the November ballot for state or national office in New York.

"This is raw racism and Fidler is a racist pig," said Davis. "What reason could have for challenging these petitions but to deny a black and brown people ballot access?"

Morgan is running for the U.S. Senate on a platform of legalizing marijuana and taxing it to alleviate the state's financial problems.

"The White Power establishment and their errand boy Lew Fidler, wants to stop brother Barron from offering people a choice," said Morgan, businesswoman, Union activist, and host of the Vivia Morgan Show on Brooklyn Access Cable." The all-white Democratic state ticket fears people of color."

"I will stage a march of people of color on this pig's home and confront him if Barron is removed from the ballot," said Morgan. "The pig Fidler must know their will be consequesces."
