Federal Judge Orders Ohio's Law Against Early Voting Struck Down; Appeal Pending

U.S. District Court Senior Judge Peter C. Economus ( a Democrat and Clinton appointee, of course, confirmed by a Democrat senate in 1995) sided with the Obama Administration in its lawsuit Obama for America v. Husted and ordered the state of Ohio to allow early voting on the three days prior to the Nov. 6 election to all voters.

Then new law that was passed restricted the early voting to active duty military and was designed to combat voter fraud and to allow time county officials said they needed to get their poll lists updated and purge the rolls of deceased voters, people no longer Ohio residents and felons.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has already announced that he will appeal to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in an effort to get th einjunction dismissed.

Stay tuned.

Well, at least you're not claiming that this disenfranchises military voters any more. You must have finally read the law and the complaint. Congratulations. Baby steps...

This particular law was designed to prevent voter fraud, and merely made an exception for military voters because of their special circumstances and duties. And you're quite aware of that.

You also know that the way the complaint was framed,it was designed to stop anyone in Ohio, including the military from voting early if the Dem's pet constituencies of the dead, illegal aliens and felons were not allowed to.

The Democrat party's odious history (and the Obama Administration's in particular)of actively working to disenfranchise military voters is very well known and well documented.

Only an 'any means to an end' doctrinaire lefty would take any pride in such a despicable policy.

Take your patronizing 'baby steps' and feel free to stick them in the appropriate orifice.
