Ebony Murphy’s Twitter Meltdown (update)

Read below for the Twitter exchange I had yesterday with independent gubernatorial candidate Jonathan Pelto’s running mate, Ebony Murphy. The next Community Party Hartford News column will include an analysis of the Pelto / Murphy campaign’s collusion with former Republican state chairman Chis Healy. Pelto gave Healy a petition, which Healy distributed to his fellow party members in an effort to get the Pelto / Murphy ticket on the ballot and bleed votes from incumbent Gov. Dannel Malloy, who will face GOP challenger Tom Foley in November. http://ctmirror.org/ex-gop-state-chairman-working-to-get-pelto-on-ballot/ I’ll talk about how the relationship between the Pelto / Murphy campaign and the Republicans could eventually impact police containment of low income communities of color in Connecticut. Police repression of Black and Latino neighborhoods is dominating the news since the shooting of unarmed Black teen Michael Brown by patrol officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. No charges have been filed yet against Wilson.
