Skip to comments.Romney campaign files federal suit to ensure all military ballots count in Wisconsin
Posted on 10/15/2012 8:45:33 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romneys campaign has filed a federal lawsuit in Wisconsin to extend the amount of time military and overseas absentee ballots can be returned.
The federal suit came on the heels a campaign request to the states Government Accountability Board to extend the deadline after at least 30 Wisconsin municipalities failed to send overseas ballots 45 days before the election, which is required under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voter Act (UOCAVA). The campaign proceeded with the suit against GAB after their initial request was denied.
Because members of the military are often stationed in remote, dangerous, frontline locations, there is a substantial likelihood that the defendants violations of law will prevent military voters from receiving, completing, and returning their ballots in time to have them counted, the lawsuit filed Friday reads. The defendants unlawful conduct therefore may effectively disenfranchise the very men and women who make daily sacrifices to protect our system of democratic government.

The GAB is completely corrupt. Seven unelected former liberal activist judges make up this pane.
Excellent, so nice to have a candidate who wants to win.
Keep the foot on the gas!

Well, there’s a big ole shock (Not). Good for Mitt that he’s staying on top of it. Hasn’t this happened before?
