Ohio voter ID law suspended
Associated Press ^ | 10/27/06 | American Pravda

Posted on 10/27/2006 7:09:40 AM PDT by perfect_rovian_storm

COLUMBUS - A federal judge on Thursday suspended Ohio's new voter identification law for early voting already under way, saying the state's 88 counties are inconsistently applying the rule for people filling out absentee ballots.

U.S. District Judge Algenon Marbley granted the temporary restraining order on behalf of labor and poverty groups who filed a lawsuit earlier in the week.

The ruling is in effect until Wednesday, when the judge will consider arguments from the same groups seeking to block application of the identification law for voters who go to the polls on Election Day.

On absentee ballots, their signature is what's used to ID them.

Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, will accept utility bills from the current month but nothing older, and Mahoning County Ohio has no policy on what would be acceptable, Chandra said.

Sounds like they can't get their act together and compile a list of acceptable IDs. It's been proven time and again that utility bills, credit card statements and the like are easily obtainable when bums and illegals (pardon the redundancy) are rummaging through your trash.

'Marbley is a Clinton appointee'...Thanks, we need to know who appoints the jerks who do things like this on the bench. The 'federal judge' aura of invincibility has enabled the Left to push this stuff on us for years with no accountability...sorry, the Republican complaint about 'judges legislating from the bench' is not specific enough to penetrate the media fog.

You've got to be a total and absolute moron of a federal judge to grant a restraining order less than a week after SCOTUS spoke on the very same issue. No restraining orders, no suspending and restoring the voter id laws.

"{Judicial Activism" is at work and they plan on stealing elections.It is a sad day indeed when illegals and dead people vote.The ABA in my opinion has been in the process of setting up a dictatorship and I believe the Clintons and Democrats are in it up to the eyelids. Remember the Judicial System in America is controlled from beginning to end by lawyers and they police themselves. They are immune from law suits and they are a "brotherhood" in the strongest sense of the word. Americas Constitution matters not when it can be interpeted according to whim.

"saying the state's 88 counties are inconsistently applying the rule for people filling out absentee ballots."

Well that tears it.

If they can't apply the rule 'fairly',why, we'll just throw the law out.

Like throwing out the baby with the bath water.

I know this is going to get appealed, mostly because we have a Secretary of State who has intestinal fortitude (thank you, Ken Blackwell!) and isn't cowed by these moonbats. Funny, I've known that we had to have ID to vote about a month or so prior to the election yet only NOW do we get this from these cheating, leftist groups, close to the election.

Here's a curiosity question:
How hard would it be to get a database set up within every state so one could type in their voter ID number and a password to make sure that their votes are recorded for checking in the future after elections. I asked a lady when I went to early vote why we couldn't get a receipt or hard copy to show how we voted. She said it wasn't legal because we could sell our votes. I didn't understand how, though.

You could take it to your "patron" as evidence that you voted his way, and then he could pay you for it.

This is now just as bad a forum shopping or judge shopping.

You time the lawy suite in order to make appeal physically difficult if not impossible.

This is the same state, that just days ago was complaining about ACORN submitting 300k new voter registrations, 150k of them with 'inconsistencies' like incorrect addresses, names, pets, dead people, etc...

The same group that got caught doing the SAME EXACT THING in 2004, and was 'warned' about it after reports in 2003.

And 3 days later the voterID law is 'suspended' by a Judge...

SHADY SHADY SHADY

OOHH! I see now.
I still think a database wouldn't hurt. I'd like to be able to go to the county site and make sure my votes were registered there the same way that they were cast. We require an ID to vote, but I'd still want to make sure that some cheating librat didn't hack into the system and change anything.

Since when do the counties have to do things all the same? Elections are generally handled by the county authorities with no particular regard for, or alignment to, all other counties. If now they must do everything the same, then they'd better have the same equipment as well! And make sure all the poll workers get the same coffee and doughnuts too.
Where does it say in the law that election procedures and standards are under state rather than county authority?

In Miami Florida there were repots ACORN was doing voter registration drives and then throwoing out those which were republican. Nobody would have known BUT FOR some hones workers who brought boxes of republican absentee requests to reporters who did cover the story.

It was denied and then droped. no prosecutions.

MAKING IT EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR REPUBLICANS TO GET OUT THE VOTE!

I think you've got most republicans mobilized and are still coming up short. Those Blackwell, DeWine and others need to appeal to the independents in order to get elected. They are the sway vote this election. I think DeWine is trying, but he's been so pummelled by the right for his gang of 14 activities and the talk show host that filled the airwaves with it so much so they know DeWine did something wrong, even if they can't answer what it is.

Blackwell has his base mobilized. As a matter of fact, they are tugging at their chains so much they are ready to break. What he hasn't done is find a comfort zone with the independents.

I only saw a portion of one debate and it was the last one. While Blackwell had the right answers, he looked very uncomfortable. I've never seen him like that. Usually, he has the look of poise, charm and confidence. He looked like dinner wasn't setting well and was trying to hold in gas. I know most people don't watch these except for political junkies, but even though his answers were great, he looked terribly uncomfortable. Again,unusual for him. The problem was for him is the masses will only see outtakes that made it to the news.
