The Ohio Republican Party Moves to Crush Democracy

The GOP is ramming legislation through the Ohio legislature that would make voter registration harder, make challenges to electoral irregularities in state elections more difficult, remove all public oversight from electronic voting, and forbid challenges to federal election results in Ohio altogether. The aim of this law is clear: to permanetly cripple the Ohio Democratic party. The disgusting details are here.

Ohio is rapidly becoming the most corrupt state in the Union. Its government is in the hands of Republican crooks, most notorious of which is rightwing fanatic Kenneth Blackwell, the lying, corrupt, dishonest bastard who happens to be Ohio Secretary of State. If this bullshit electoral law isn't challenged and defeated, the Democrats can kiss a key state goodbye for a long time.
