ACRU’s Ken Blackwell chairs the America First Policy Institute’s Center for Election Integrity in Cooperative Effort to Protect America’s Election System

Naples, FL– The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) announced today that ACRU Policy Board Member and former Ohio Secretary of State, Ken Blackwell, is chairing the America First Policy Institute’s Center for Election Integrity in a cooperative effort to encourage citizen involvement in protecting American elections.

Blackwell, also the former mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, discussed the importance of citizen participation in protecting election integrity on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. He emphasized the need for citizens to become poll workers as a first line of defense.

“What we’re trying to do is to make sure that folks understand that whether it is open borders, whether it is the advancement of state-sponsored racism, or whether it’s crime wave associated with this effort to ‘defund the police,’ all of this comes together as a leftist movement that demands we push back. Because as Frederick Douglass said, those who are whipped easiest are whipped most often,” Blackwell states.

Lori Roman, President of the American Constitutional Rights Union, praised Blackwell’s leadership in fostering cooperation between like-minded organizations to protect elections. “It is a good sign for the country that many organizations are working cooperatively to ensure it is easy to vote and hard to cheat. ACRU Policy Board Member Ken Blackwell is a great leader and role model in these efforts.”
