Beachwood, Ohio, Anomalies

From an Analysis of Beachwood, Ohio, anomalies, by Tim Lohrentz:

"Beachwood, Ohio, is home to Edward Lozick, Finance Chair of Ronald Reagan's election campaigns in 1980 and 1984, and leading member of the secret, far-right, Council for a National Policy. Guess what? Beachwood's 2004 vote tally doesn't make sense."

"Lozick and the Vote in Beachwood, Ohio

In my article about the Cuyahoga precincts, http://www.indybay.org/news/2004/11/1704733.php, I mentioned how nearly all the precincts in Beachwood, Ohio, had more (or equal number of) votes for Bush than for Republican Voinovich in his Senate race. This is highly unusual, given that county- and state-wide Voinovich got 19% more votes than Bush, as many independents and moderate Dems voted for him. "

"Well, a couple interesting facts about Beachwood. Based on census info, it is right on the edge of where African Americans are moving into. It was 9% African American in 2000. One precinct had a vote of >90% for Kerry - most likely a Black majority precinct - and several others had >80% for Kerry. But most were majority Bush. So the integration is being fought. "
