CARROLL G. ROBINSON, ESQUIRE
March 12, 2008
Honorable Sheila Jackson-Lee
Member of Congress
Dear Congresswoman Jackson-Lee:
As my member of Congress and a National Co-Chair of the Hillary Clinton for President Campaign, I am calling on you to denounce and reject Geraldine Ferraros’ racist attack on Senator Obama and demand that she resign from the campaigns national finance committee.
You can support Senator Clinton for President but you must speak out against the negative, and at times racist, campaign that she is running.
You are beginning to lose support and respect in the 18th District and people are beginning to say that they will not vote for you and Clinton if she is the nominee because of the kind of campaign she is running against Obama.
You have a special and historic responsibility to standup and oppose the unethical and negative campaigning of the Clinton campaign like Barbara, Mickey and Craig would.
Carroll G. Robinson, Esq.
