2004 Ohio Voting Already in Federal Appeals Court

Ohio Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell lost his case to prevent provisional voting in Ohio yesterday. Guess what. He appealed to federal circuit court.

Is this depressing or what? We are more than two weeks away from election day, and Republicans are fighting in federal court like a litigious Joseph Stalin to keep people from voting. I don't know whether to be happy that Democrats are fighting back, or heartbroken that we have to.

Republicans have a real problem with provisional voting. It seems they only trust local election officials to manage voting rolls if they're scrubbing the list of felons.

Keep up the good work on this blog - it's great to have a blogger right in the thick of it - in Ohio.

Dr. Robert Fitrakis is running for Governor of Ohio. He was the first person who began the investigation of the 2004 stolen Election in Ohio. He was also the person who gave the report to Robert Kennedy.
