(CNSNews.com) - The Ohio Republican Party officially filed challenges Friday to approximately 35,000 registrants in 65 counties where voter fraud is believed to have taken place.
The state's Republican Party is pre-challenging these registrants' right to vote in the 2004 presidential election because mail to the new registrants was returned as undeliverable by U.S. Postal Service authorities.
"Our goal in filing these pre-election challenges is to protect the integrity of Ohio's electoral process," said Bob Bennett, chairman of the Ohio Republican Party. "We want to ensure that voters are not disenfranchised by fraud in this election. This is an effort to clarify questionable registrations in advance so they don't become an issue on Election Day."
Earlier in the week, Bennett was joined by Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie at a news conference where he showed thousands of pieces of undeliverable mail to newly registered voters. Concern was raised when the rate of return was at an unprecedented higher rate than in the past.
At the previous news conference, Bennett cited that the normal rate of return on new registrations in less than 1 percent. However, this year the rate of return has ranged from 2 percent to 11 percent in Ohio counties.
Bennett also called on the Democratic Party to help in ensuring a fair and honest election this November, instead of making outrageous claims that the Republican Party is trying to suppress voters.

Now, if we can get the GOP off their butts in Floriduh we may get somewhere.
All I know is that the Democrats are going to accuse us of trying to suppress the vote when we defend ourselves like this...
This is going to be a very messy election. We must stay firm.
"We know this has been going on, a story the MSM is hiding."
Or trying to spin. I live in Ohio and one explanation being given for the new added voters causing an area's population to be greater than the census states, is that people are kept on the voter rolls long after they move. In other words, it's just an accounting artifact. There REALLY is NO fraud going on!
Some people's ID in Florida's is a rock.
Juuuuuuust kidding... :)
Finally!! A preemptive war in on the DNC... love it!
"All I know is that the Democrats are going to accuse us of trying to suppress the vote when we defend ourselves like this....."
Who the f$#k cares what they think or say? I am so tired of our actions and responses being influenced by what these anti-American a$$&oles say. Screw them. It's all about results right now.
Looks like we have better lawyers!
YES!!!! (Dancing in the living room!)
And I would like to sell them a piece of the bridge over Lake Erie/
The GOP does have some pretty good lawyers, and plenty in reserve. They just don't flash them around like the Dems do.
It's hard to argue that systematic, massive election fraud is an aberration.
How about JAIL TIME for the leftist bums?
Flip the slobs doing the dirty work to get the engineers of this grave threat to our democracy.
As Peggy Noonan said the other day, election fraud is treason.
Whoa! Someone woke up! It's about time! Get out the vote so the Dems can't STEAL this election.
Now, I expect the Texan named Bush to take it to the outlaws. This state ain't big enough for the both of 'em.
I believe Bush has learned his lesson about reaching out to Washington Democrats, they bite.
"...piece of the bridge over Lake Erie"
One might ordinarily surmise that new registrants would have valid mailing addresses. There is a serious war going on here, and the enemy seems to be without honor.
You nailed it!! I could never understand why he tried to get along with the demokooks in Washington, guess he had better luck in Texas. If you take a cold snake into your bosom it will soon warm up and bite as you said.
The Democrats would then never win another seat in the House, Senate, or elsewhere.
35,000??!!! Hope weve got some good lawyers packing for Florida as we speak!
