“President Obama’s lawsuit claiming it is for Ohio to allow servicemen and women extended early voting privileges during the state’s early voting period is an outrage.” – Mitt Romney
WHILE SEN. REID continues to confound Republicans on what they can do about his unabashedly brazen charges that Mr. Romney hasn’t paid his taxes for 10 years. He picks up an ally in Minority Leader Pelosi who’s now moved the conversation to “the fact” that Reid was told what he was told. But the Romney campaign itself is busy rewriting the intent of the Obama efforts in Ohio, making mush out of a very important voting issue.
Team Obama hopes to give all voters what the military enjoys, which is laid out in the complaint filed. They want to reverse an Ohio law that doesn’t allow American citizens the same voting rights as the military.
“Ohio election law, as currently enacted by the State of Ohio and administered by Defendant Ohio Secretary of State, arbitrarily eliminates early voting during the three days prior to Election Day for most Ohio voters, a right previously available to all Ohio voters,” the lawsuit states. The Republican-sponsored law ends early in-person voting for non-members of the military three days prior to Election Day this November, eliminating early voting on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday leading up to Nov. 6. – [ABC News]
The sausage making of winning a presidential election.
Mr. Romney is simply not telling the truth on this one. By this one I mean the Ohio charges against Team Obama with voting and veterans, not the other story that has the GOP claiming Reid is lying about Romney.
