Judicial Watch Founder Klayman Disses Cleveland for GOP Convention

The Republican National Committee chose Cleveland, Ohio, as the city where it will hold its national convention in 2016 and Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman wants to know why.

First of all, "99 percent of all the precincts voted for Obama," Klayman told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"It's the most liberal city in the United States, bar none," he said. "Dennis Kucinich, who was a congressman there, essentially a communist — that was their congressman."

Besides the political drawbacks, Klayman says that it also doesn't make sense "from a logistical perspective."

"Cleveland is completely a dead letter," he said. "They don't have hotels, they have one decent hotel downtown at the [Tower City Center] and that's in a high-crime area that's frequented by gangs."

"There are essentially no other facilities to serve the Republican convention," he said. "There are three restaurants downtown that you would want to eat at, unless you want to go to McDonald's or something like that."

"Then in July and August of each year, these really foul creatures called lake flies, believe it or not, I mean they're gnats but they're bigger, they're giant gnats, swarm into the area," he said.

Klayman also voiced his concern about Cleveland as the location for the GOP convention in a column titled, "Cleveland and the GOP: Both Losers."
