After several hard fought seconds of deliberation, the editorial board of the Impeach Mallory Blog has decided to endorse Kimberly Hale for the Statehouse in the Ohio 32nd.

It was not a tough choice given her opponent. Let’s first take a look at Dale Mallory.

In February of this year, Dale Mallory was impeached and removed from office from the West End Community Council. Dale Mallory conspired to deny his community a vote of opposition on the CityLink Center project. Later investigations by the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Cincinnati Business Courier revealed that Dale Mallory was a paid advocate on behalf of CityLink, and that he had sold out his community. The CityLink case is still in court, and Dale Mallory is currently under criminal investigation.

This is a list organizations opposed to CityLink:

1) West End Churches and Ministers
2) Cincinnati City Council
3) Sheriff Simon Leis
4) Over The Rhine Chamber of Commerce
5) OTR Brewery District
6) Clifton Heights Business Association
7) Brighton Business Owners Association
8) West End Community Council
9) Pendleton Neighborhood Association
10) Westwood Concern
11) Dayton Street Neighborhood Association
12) Klotter / Conroy Residents Association
13) CUF Neighborhood Association
14) Clifton Heights Improvement Association
15) West McMicken Improvement Association
16) Mulberry Hill Neighborhood Association
17) East Walnut Hills Assembly
18) Cincinnati Homeowners Association

The list of community organizations and neighborhood groups that support CityLink still stand at zero. Dale Mallory claimed neutrality, but he was later exposed for being a paid shill for the cause. Dale Mallory was paid to support CityLink, even while he was actively denying his community a vote on the matter.

Dale Mallory was the executive director of Genesis Redevelopment. The Genesis Redevelopment Scandal rocked the West End a few years ago. Genesis had a budget of nearly a million dollars, and they promised to develop over a hundred units of housing. Investigations found that Genesis built only one home, along with giving contracts and doing surface cosmetic enhancements to homes of families and friends of those involved.

As President of the West End Community Council, Dale Mallory appointed the City Hall Hitman / Functionally Illiterate dishwasher Howard Beatty to the Board of Directors of the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation. Dale also had a hand in appointing George “Junebug” Beatty and Len Garrett to the Board of Directors. As chairman of the board, Len Garrett then gave Dale a “consulting” position reporting solely to him. The whole affair was exposed by the Cincinnati Enquirer, which raised both ethical and legal questions that Dale Mallory never answered. As soon as the news became public, the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation fired Dale Mallory. That brought to an end his only constructive employment in the last decade.

After Dale Mallory was impeached and removed from office, he filed two lawsuits against over two dozen people. He sued his niehbors, West End Ministers, the Cincinnati Police and the Sheriff. One suit was thrown out of court, and the other was dropped before it followed the same fate.

Months after being impeached and removed from office, Dale Mallory cleaned out and closed down the West End Community Council bank account. He is currently under a felony investigation for that act.

During the current political campaign, Dale Mallory has refused all attempts to answer questions, conduct interviews, or have debates. He has run a silent political campaign. His sole strategy is to rely on the Mallory family name.

On the flip side we have Kimberly Hale, who is a breath of fresh air into the Cincinnati political scene. This is what the Cincinnati Enquirer had to say when endorsing Kimberly Hale:

There's a better alternative for voters in this district of central Cincinnati neighborhoods. Kim Hale, a West End neighbor of Mallory, decided to run after GOP candidate Mike Poast discovered he wasn't really a resident of district. She also was motivated by what she saw as Mallory's attempt to ram CityLink through without debate.

A progressive-minded community activist, she's not a typical Republican but is a very good fit for this district - bright, hard-working, good at networking and collaboration with various community groups.

She is president of the Dayton Street Neighborhood Association and member of the Cincinnati Human Services Advisory Committee. She would focus on attracting and encouraging small businesses, and she has specific ideas on combating crime and on increasing residency in the district. We endorse Kim Hale in the 32nd House District race.

It is about time the 32nd got proper representation. We need someone who cares about the people and the needs of our community. We need someone who can’t be bought off and sold to the highest bidder like Dale Mallory.

Kimberly Hale offers a fresh alternative to the corruption that is plauging the district. A vote for Hale is a vote for change in the way we do business. We here at the IMB both support and endorse Kimberly Hale.

Dear Mr. Dallory,
You sure waited long enough!
Had Ms. Hale known of the endorsement earlier, she could have included this endorsement on her literature.
The Blogosphere has been holding its' collective breath in anticipation of this momentous announcement.
Who'd of thunk you would stick yur red neck out so far and endorse Ms. Hale. You have held your cards so very close to your beer stained vest.
Let's all hope this critical endorsement tips the balance in Kim's fovor. Here's to a Hale victory Tuesday.
Hale yes!!!

When anyone writes that a Republican is an alternative to corruption, then that is the best evidence I know about why we need to support more independents.

I know Kim Hale.
There ain't no one more independant than Kim.
Kim ain't beholdin to any party or any lobby.
She took the Republican endorsement because it was offered and it will provide votes. There were NO strings attached.
Kim will study the issues and do right by her neighbors and the City.
Kim's no party hack. She's an involved citizen that got fed up with Mallory corruption.
Dean, you KNOW that Dale's as rotten as rotten can be. She's got what we need to have a voice of the people in Columbus.

I'm voting for Kim.
I'm also voting for your Green Party guy for Gov.
I'll vote 3rd party when needed.
I'll also vote for a newbie like Kim if she can oust corruption like the Mallorys.

"I'll also vote for a newbie like Kim if she can oust corruption like the Mallorys."

The Truth Squad has only given you a sneak preview of how to slice through the Mallory corruption when they dissected Dale. There's more out there to be examined and dealt with.

Kim Hale is the only choice for Tuesday.

In addition to the Impeach Mallory Blog endorsing Kim, the Coalition of Community Court Watchers tossed their hats in many weeks ago.

We're on to the final push, so let's go!

Hale YES!

You hit that dead on the head. She is as independent as they come. Columbus would love her!

I've been reading this blog for more than a year now and it is time for me to get my two cents in.

I've never met a more honest, transparent, level headed person than Kim Hale, but there is more to her......something that you can't put your hands on.

She is a strong negotiator, very intuitive and her incredibly warm sincere personality seems to lead without cause. She is frank and party lines mean nothing to her. People are drawn to her confidence and optimism and her charisma. In her presence, people expect her to lead - which she does without hesitation or thought.

Whatever Hale has, you can not bottle it - it's just there.

She would be an excellent addition to Ohio's house, congress or senate.

The huge HALE YES mobile billboard was parked directly across from the front steps to CityHall this morning. Everyone entering the building walked right past the truck, many stopping to read and admire. The amazing part ,almost all appeared to smile and those in groups engaged in spirited conversation. A meter officer stood adjacent to the meter for the entire time waiting for the time to expire. The volunteer driver fed the coins keeping the ticket writer at bay. I imagine a meter violation would have been headline breaking news on the Mallory operated CBB. The Hale camp would have been accused of another serious criminal violation. These Hale volunteers are motivated and fun to watch. I am sorry the election is tomorrow these grass roots, Hale supporters are just getting warmed up!

You have often displayed a picture of Dale (on this thread) with a Channel 9 (WCPO) ID line and an apron-clad, orange-shirted fellow to the rear. Is that George "Junebug" Beatty?

Ugh... Did no Democrat read the Citybeat issue? That should say something when citybeat slams a Dem.

I guess this tells us two things. 1. The Mallory name alone still sells well. It doesn't matter who the first name is. 2. The 32nd district has always voted heavily democrat and will probably always vote party lines.

The only way to get this crook out of office either by a conviction, or by running a competent Dem in the next set of primaries. The candidate may need to be African-American, but I don't care about skin color. I just don't want a crook representing us in office.

She never had a chance. The race was over as it always is in the 32nd, in the primary.

Dale could have been indicted on those felony charges and still won the 32nd. The 32nd is never going Republican.
