Ohio Sec State breaking the law
Posted by: McQ on Friday, October 10, 2008

Tell me this election isn't turning into a real nasty event:
Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is breaking federal law by not giving county elections boards the chance to determine whether new voter registrations are fraudulent, a federal judge ruled this evening.

"It is hard to imagine a public interest more compelling than safeguarding the legitimacy of the election of the president of the United States," said Judge George C. Smith of U.S. District Court in Columbus in upholding the Ohio Republican Party's request for a court order.
Yeah, who needs ACORN when you have the Secretary of State intimately involved in perpetrating fraud.

I’m surprised MK & Retief haven’t been by yet to observe this is all the fault of George W. Bush.

My experience in Ohio from many years ago was that it was probably just as corrupt as Illinois or New Jersy, anyway, just with more power centers (Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron).

It was, and possibly still is, the only state in the nation with a statue of a man carrying a briefcase in the capitol city, as opposed to one on horseback or wearing a toga or something. It was of former Republican Governor James Rhodes. Everyone figured the bronze briefcase was full of bronze cash.

This present case is an especially odious example of corruption, however.

I suspect I’m not the only one who finds it exceedingly odd that when given the chance Democrats use all the tactics they constantly accuse Republicans of.

Of course, in Ohio Republicans shot themselves in the foot (or some more painful appenage) by governing like idiots.

It would be nice to have a serious, non-corrupt party in the country that might win elections.

This ruling has already been reversed by an appeals court. Oops! Gonna have to revise your logic! (Just kidding. We know that doesn’t happen).

The problem is that OH’s tech is in shambles. Brunner just took over, so Blackwell gets the blame for OH’s technological nightmare.
