Politicians say advertisement in Ward 5 discriminates against minorities and felons



CLEVELAND, Ohio--An election-related billboard in Cleveland's Ward 5 has caused a stir, prompting some complaints that it discriminates against minority groups and felons.

The advertisement, posted at the intersection of Community College Avenue and East 35th Street, warns that "voting fraud is a felony" in bold lettering. It also states that the penalty is punishable by up to three and a half years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

The ad also shows a gavel and sound block and lists that it was paid for by a private family foundation. The billboard is operated by Clear Channel Outdoor.
