Ohio secretary of state Frank LaRose cut ties with Kids Voting Ohio after Free Beacon inquiry.
A left-wing activist group that provides parents and teachers with radical "antiracism" teaching materials won the endorsement of Ohio's Republican secretary of state—who says he was unaware of the radical content and has cut ties with the group.
Ohio secretary of state Frank LaRose in January threw his support behind Kids Voting Ohio, a group "committed to creating lifelong voting habits in children" by providing them with "all the resources necessary for informed civic engagement." LaRose joined the group's board of directors and its website homepage featured the official logo of LaRose's office, pointing to the secretary of state as one of its main partners.
Also on the homepage was a link to the group's "Anti-Racism in Classrooms" resources. Among the resources linked to are "culturally responsive teaching," author Ibram X. Kendi's How to Be an Antiracist, and a video on "white rage."
