Congresswoman Fudge endorses Mike O'Malley over Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, and the county Democratic party executive committee, on behalf of the party, will decide who is officially endorsed for county prosecutor by the party on Dec 17, if anybody.... State representative Bill Patmon calls the city ward leaders endorsement of O'Malley a rejection of McGinty by his own party....Community activists want McGinty out of office, says Art McKoy, and Charles E. Bibb Sr. says that he backs Fudge' s endorsement of O'Malley 100 percent...McGinty's fall from grace follows his prejudicial handling of the Tamir Rice Cleveland police murder case, his illegal adoption of unconstitutional office policies to protect police that kill unarmed Blacks, his interoffice conflict, his conflict with common pleas judges, the Brelo verdict, and his public harassment of Rice's grieving mother....Some residents of Cleveland Ward 1 who are also on the executive committee yesterday overwhelmingly decided against McGinty at a meeting led by Ward 1 Councilman Terrell Pruitt and also attended by Nina Turner.....But Ward 1 did not embrace O'Malley's candidacy at yesterday's meeting....Some Black elected officials say that O'Malley is not much different than McGinty when it comes to the Black community and overzealous and unfair prosecutions and otherwise, but is the lesser of the two evils....By Cleveland Urban News.Com Editor-in-Chief Kathy Wray Coleman
