Leslie Ghiz has angered some Occupy
Cincinnati supporters by posting on her Facebook page the home and email address of one individual and the email address of another who criticized her for pressuring City Manager
Milton Dohoney to kick the protesters out of the park. The two individuals wrote to Ghiz's campaign, according to Ghiz.
A federal judge yesterday ordered police to stop ticketing protesters during the 28-hour period ending 8 p.m. Wednesday while representatives of Occupy Cincinnati negotiated with the city over its use of the park after hours. No agreement was reached, as the city refused to grant overnight use and protesters reportedly refused offers to move to another location.
Judge Susan Dlott isn't expected to
rule on the First Amendment lawsuit until next week, and City
Solicitor John Curp told The Enquirer that once the court-sanctioned standstill period ends on Wednesday
that the city will resume “issuing citations or more."
In the meantime, Ghiz's Facebook page
is buzzing with disdain for the individuals involved in the protest.
Responses from commenters include the following:
"The protesters need to move it to DC that is where the real problems started they are all freeloaders at this point"and:
"Must be nice to have no job and live off the government with nothing better to do than sit in a park all day...
Ghiz has responded to the support by comparing the breaking of a potentially unconstitutional law to refusing to pay a parking ticket, posting the following suggestion which was also met with praise:
