More misinformation. The lawsuit attempts to enjoin Republican backed legislation that restricts early voting in Ohio. It doesn’t do anything to change the period of military voting.

From what I see, from a reputable source, it doesn’t look that way to me.

What proof do you have to support your comment?

“the lawsuit does not restrict the ability of military personnel to cast their ballots early”

”These laws allows voters using the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voter Act (“UOCAVA”) to vote early in-person at a board of elections office up through the Monday before Election Day, while non-UOCAVA voters can vote early in-person at a board of elections office (or designated alternate site) only up until 6 p.m. on the Friday before Election Day. Basically, the Ohio Legislature recognized the undue hardship imposed on those military men and women serving and provided an additional three days for them to vote.The lawsuit by the Obama campaign would eliminate the extra three days allowed the military.

- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - -

Looks like Obama wants to cutout the long weekend that the military currently has to vote… Why?

Being in the Military could very easily result in possible Other Duties to which they are committed, to go beyond the Friday where having until Monday to Vote would enable the busy military to vote where they might not be able to after Friday.

It was NOT broken… The provision was made for a reason… It does NOT have to be fixed…

IMHO, the Military need those three days to vote…

“Plaintiffs bring this lawsuit to restore in-person early voting for all Ohioans during the three days prior to Election Day – a right exercised by an estimated 93,000 Ohioans in the last presidential election. 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. “

Joe, I’m learning to NEVER believe anything the news media throws out as a breaking news story. Invaribly if you wait 24 hours you get a ” so and so” MISSPOKE” or so and so” BACKSPOKE” . The news media sucks and is getting worse everyday. I interpret these words as:

Misspoke-lets alligator mouth overload humingbird ass
Backspoke- ran mouth about something didn’t know anything about and got caught(lied)

I don’t even know what to say about that. You report it as tho’ its a fact, then claim you are not responsible for reporting it? Or am I missing something here?

The truth is Since 2005, Ohio has had in person early-voting in the three days prior to the election. This year, however, the Republican legislature in Ohio eliminated early voting during this period, except for members of the military. The Obama lawsuit is attempting to restore voting rights for all Ohioans, not restrict them for the military or any other group.

But that doesn’t stop Willard Romney from stating the opposite on his face book account. Get this….even Fox News told the truth on this one, even Fox said Romney was full of BS.

Joe, you really need to start paying attention for a change and make it a habit to verify anything twice (see Chipmunk’s post 6 hours before yours).
