Not Selling Out In Steubenville, Ohio

Mic-checking (TWICE!!) Gov Kasich's Steubenville debut was part of the protest rally there February 7, 2012.
Ten citizens made their message heard to the governor and his audience, reminding us all that the voice of the People shall not be silenced. Together they recited this near the end of Kasich's speech as he began to discuss fracking, "John Kasich is selling us out - to the frackers on Wall Street - We will not be sold - We will not be bought - Give the power to the People not the corporations."
