UnGovernor: Kitzhaber Is His Name...
Oregon Lawmaker Mitch Greenlick plans to carry water
this legislative session for UnGovernor John Kitzhaber on the Death
Penalty. Greenlick wants a
constitutional ban on the death penalty. Yet Oregonians overwhelmingly support Capital Punishment…as do the vast
majority of Americans.
voted to preserve the death penalty by a solid majority…despite a multimillion
dollar campaign to convince them otherwise.
National polls show support for the death penalty over seventy
percent. The least supportive
demographic group…black Americans…support the death penalty by 55 percent. The same governor who champions doctor
assisted suicide calls capital punishment inequitable and immoral.
First, white death row inmates are more
likely to be put to death than black. Second…it doesn't matter what citizen Kitzhaber thinks is moral. He took an oath to do a job and part of that
job is enforcing a law Oregonians voted to put in place.
