COLUMBUS, Ohio A man who was dressed in a squirrel costume was escorted from the Ohio Statehouse steps on Monday morning while Gov. Ted Strickland, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Mayor Michael Coleman were discussing negative campaigning by Republicans.
The squirrel held up a sign that said, "Don't Let Obama + ACORN Steal Ohio."
Strickland, Brown and Coleman stood on the Statehouse steps to call for an end to what they called "lying, deceitful ads" by Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, 10TV's Patrick Bell reported.
McCain's campaign accuses ACORN, a community activist group that operates nationwide, of perpetrating "massive voter fraud," claiming Sen. Barack Obama has "long and deep" ties to the group.
"I say to Sen. McCain and those backing him in the way they do things to stop squirreling around and start being straight with voters," Coleman said. "We ought to be tired of the ridiculousness we're seeing here."
Ohio Democratic officials have admitted that up to a third of the 600,000 new voter registrations made this year have some kind of discrepancy.
On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a bid by Republicans to force Ohio to verify suspicious registration before the Nov. 4 election.
Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, a Democrat, has said the discrepancies most likely stem from innocent clerical errors rather than fraud but has set up a verification plan.
"This unanimous ruling by the United States Supreme Court allows Ohio to move about the business of ensuring a free, fair, open and honest election without the threat of widespread voter suppression by the GOP," Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern said in a statement.

Priceless!! I would give him a big kiss!
what a nut...
That costume clearly depicts a CHIPMUNK, not a squirrel.
Can the MSM get anything right?
Probably a fellow FREEPER!
LoL. I like it!
LoL. I like it!
Anybody seen the good Doctor?
I sweat to Heaven above these people lie when they don't even need to lie....
LOL! Could be a red squirrel that are really only found in the UK anymore and maybe Europe. Our grays have been crowding the smaller reds out in the UK. I am not sure how the grays got there.
Ya know? At the moment I have a squirrel in my house.
He’s all claws and teeth...
I guess some rodents are more equal than others.
I was hoping to see Rocket J. Squirrel. Instead I got Alvin and the Chimpmunks.
That man's behavior just made my day!
They escorted him off the stairs of the Statehouse steps because he was holding a sign and dressed like a squirrel?
We have to put up with gangs of stinky unwashed hippies while they kiss their *sses with their obscene signs and screaming obscenities, yet this guy gets walked off for having the guts to stand alone.
This is B.S. IMHO
Does the GOP have any fall back position on Ohio and this vote theft. The guy in the squirrel/chipmunk suit is priceless but I am not sure if that will stop the vote theft. What about the equal protection clause?
Can anyone call Mark Levin about this? The GOP should have had a backup plan.
Wish I had that inspiration, but that’s not one of mine.
If a squirrel is pestering Sarah Palin, she’ll shoot it and serve it for dinner.
Sean, Rush, Laura, Michelle, Ann and Brit.
Think this will get mentioned?
