200,000. 200,000. 200,000. Oh yeah, you read that correctly. I’m sitting here watching Barack Obama (Gumby) get his ass handed to him by Joe the Plumber via John McCain and what do I come across on the web?
The Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner (D) is being forced by the court to cough up mismatched voter registrations to the tune of 200,000 voters. (Wow, that’s alot of fake people. I wonder if Minnie is in there?)
Brunner: I’ll obey court order, but thousands could lose their right to vote. (Thousands of what…and I thought you were an state officer and had to comply with court orders….so obeying shouldn’t be a choice, dimwit.)
COLUMBUS — More than 200,000 Ohioans who registered to vote this year for the first time or updated their voting information since Jan. 1 could be affected by the latest court ruling requiring the state to set up a new registration verification system by Friday, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said.
Brunner said she would comply with the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling late Tuesday but said she is deeply concerned that the decision is a veiled attempt at disenfranchising voters. (doublespeak for I really want the dead and their dead pets to be able to vote too.)
Since Jan. 1, Ohio has 666,000 newly registered or updated voters — all of whom fall under scrutiny by this latest court ruling. Brunner said an initial review found that at least 200,000 of them might have mismatched information. Once the office identifies all of the mismatched voters, Brunner will send the list to the county boards of election where the individuals have registered.
But state Republican Party Chairman Bob Bennett said Brunner’s decision to not implement the verification system sooner without the court forcing her to do so has cost county boards of election valuable time reining in examples of fraud.
“Unfortunately, her delay in providing this matching system leaves little time for election officials to act on questionable registrations,” Bennett said in a statement. “Secretary Brunner should immediately issue a new directive providing clear guidance on how the boards should handle the mismatched voter data.”
Between the secretary’s office and the county boards, Brunner said, efforts will be made to notify the voters of the discrepancy and urge them to update their information. Brunner will also follow that up with a directive to the counties urging them not to force people to vote provisionally. She said that could set up yet another Republican challenge, but that federal law does not require a person with mismatched information to vote provisionally, as opposed to getting a regular ballot.
We have 20 days of watching the ACORN Voter Registration Fraud unravel and take Bambi, and the rest of the socialist dems with them.
