'You Are Still Being Hunted': Conservative Group's Tweet Draws Ire

The Cincinnati NAACP is calling for an apology for "reprehensible" tweets about a black council member from conservative group COAST

Cincinnati -- A tweet from local conservative activists has set off a wave of criticism, including calls for an apology from a prominent civil rights group.

The Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes tagged Cincinnati City Councilwoman Tamaya Dennard in a tweet sent the evening of Nov. 28 that read, "you are still being hunted. Think about it, eventually you will make a public appearance where Sheriff can serve you with your Grand Jury subpoena. Do you really want to make a spectacle of this? #cooperate #turnyourselfin #surrender."

In case anyone had any doubts about the manner in which the word "hunt" was used, COAST followed up with this tweet: "Two deputies with guns at their side are scouring the city looking for her. What term would you prefer? We'll switch it up."

The barbed social media missives come as COAST members Mark Miller and Brian Shrive, his attorney, press a lawsuit against the city alleging five council members, including Dennard, violated Ohio open meetings laws by group-texting during the stormy ouster of then-City Manager Harry Black by Mayor John Cranley.
