Full 6th District Court reverses panel ruling - Ohio Sec State must verify voter’s eligibility
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

So apparently the judiciary, at least in this case, agree that voter fraud is an important issue and should be confronted immediately:
A federal appeals court on Tuesday ordered Ohio's top elections official to set up a system by the end of the week to verify new voters' eligibility and make it available to Ohio's 88 county election boards.

The full 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati upheld a lower court's ruling that Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner must use other government records to check the thousands of new voters for registration fraud.

A three-judge panel of the 6th Circuit had disagreed last week, but the full court's ruling trumped the panel's decision.
This takes a lot of wind out of the sails of the apologists for Brunner and fraudulent registration in general.

I don't think this is the end of the fight:
Brunner argued that it would take two to three days to create the necessary computer programs, and that nothing in the Help America Vote Act required her to do what the district court ordered.

Tuesday's order directs Brunner to verify new registrations by comparing information on them with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles or the Social Security Administration.
And of course ACORN isn't the only problem concerning fraudulent registrations, there's also the problem of non-citizen voting. Recently we saw where Indianapolis had more voters registered than are eligible. That's not an uncommon occurrence as this study shows.

Integrity within the voting system is a critical piece. Legitimacy is critical to the peaceful transition of power. If the people don't believe in the integrity of the system, It might be hard for winners to claim that legitimacy.

You'd think both sides could agree on that.

McQ - Integrity within the voting system is a critical piece. Legitimacy is critical to the peaceful transition of power. If the people don’t believe in the integrity of the system, It might be hard for winners to claim that legitimacy.

Cynic that I am, I scoff at this notion. WINNING is the critical piece as far as too many people (especially on the left) are concerned. When you win, you get to control the entire huge apparatus of the government, including the military and law enforcement. Put in a few of the right cronies at DoJ, Homeland Security and DoD and you can squash whatever opposition remains. If The Annointed One wins as he looks likely to do, it won’t matter a jot whether he won because his pals at ACORN effectively stuffed ballot boxes in battleground states and that his other pals in the MSM effectively ran month after month of campaign ads disguised as news stories on his behalf. He will still be sworn in on Jan. 20, be called "Mr. President", and have all that power at his fingertips.

Ace has Brunner with 200,000+ mismatching voter applications that she has been sitting on.

This is a disgrace.
