The Kerry campaign's aggressive politicking in black churches in the final weeks of the presidential election landed some of those churches in hot water. Press accounts told of numerous campaign visits to churches in Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Miami, and elsewhere in Florida by Sen. John Kerry, Sen. John Edwards, Sen. Ted Kennedy, former presidential candidate Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others. The speeches, unabashedly partisan and fear-mongering, lambasted President Bush. In some of the pulpits, pastors openly endorsed Mr. Kerry and urged church members to vote for him.
