Ieshuh Griffin is a candidate for state office in Wisconsin, and she has a message for the voters. Ieshuh wants you to know that she is "NOT the white man's bitch".
Ieshuh even wanted that to be the slogan under her name on the ballot. "Its not racist, its not a slur...its not pointed to a particular person, in my point of view the average politician is a token" Griffin says. The state's Government Accountability Board said no, and now Griffin is suing. She says her "freedom of expression" is being "suppressed". A spokesperson for GAB, Reid Magney says Griffin was denied because "Staff determined that her language used on her declaration of candidacy is pejorative in nature and does not satisfy the requirements of Wisconsin statutes".
