Skip to comments.Obama camp: Romney's Ohio voting claim 'shameful'
Posted on 08/04/2012 7:02:14 PM PDT by ColdOne
Mitt Romney sparked a Saturday tit-for-tat by claiming, without pointing to any evidence, that President Obama's campaign is trying to restrict military voting in Ohio.
Obamas campaign responded, ripping Romney for "completely fabricating" a claim it called shameful.
At issue: A lawsuit the Obama campaign filed July 17 that seeks to restore three days of early voting for all of the state's voters. At no point does the lawsuit attempt to curb the rights of active military.
Instead, the federal suit tries to restore three days of early voting for all citizens that Ohio GOP-led state legislature eliminated in 2011.

I got a phone call and the caller said 0bama’s eating dog meat again.
Bull! The reason we give an early voting privlege to military is because it takes extended time for the ballots to arrive. Those within the state of Ohio can simply walk to their polling places that Tuesday. If they’re not around, they can vote absentee.
Early voting within the United States is a sham that encourages fraud.
Obama, or your own lying eyes?
“The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee this week filed a lawsuit to block a new Ohio law that expands early voting rights for service members, allowing military members to vote up until the Monday before the election three days longer than is allowed for the rest of the public.”
Bath-House Barry LIES-—That’s RULE #1.
Sure... and if it means going AWOL and traveling 2000 miles to do so, well, that's what every service-member should expect to do.
Typical Demo spin. A bill that granted 3 extra days to service members becomes a bill that denied all other voters the 3 extra days. First they perform that slight of hand, then they claim their opponents are trying to deny equal protection to the voters of Ohio.
Same old routine: steal the cookies then run around yelling about how offended you are at being called a cookie thief.
I am talking about weeks of early voting, Not absentee voting for reasons of business or millitary service. For the love of God, you can vote for several weeks before the election in Ohio.
I spent 24 years in the Military and missed several elections due to ballots arriving late. There are voting officers now to help, but it can still be a crapshoot.
