Ohio Lawsuit to Reinstate hundreds of thousands of Purged Democratic Voters to be Filed Fri or Monday

Following up my previous post:“Ineligable Voters” Thrown Out Of Diebold Voting Machine Registries – GOP Makes ANOTHER Move to STEAL The Vote

I found this piece today:

Ohio Lawsuit to Reinstate hundreds of thousands of Purged Democratic Voters to be Filed Fri or Monday [via] opednews.com


Ohio voting rights activist and attorney, Bob Fitrakis, says the Ohio elections may have already been won, responding to reports of massive voter purges in Democratic precincts.Dr. Fitrakis, told OpEdNews, “Essentially, by purging these rolls, the Republicans, by shrinking the electorate, have already won in Ohio. If they can’t win, which is what the polls show among registered voters, the way to win is to use their nuclear option– to target black voters, young voters and the working poor– by purging them so they can’t vote.

Reports indicate that starting as early as shortly after the 2004 presidential elections, but particularly recently, hundreds of thousands of voters– mostly urban apartment dwellers (likely black) and students– who are primarily Democratic– were sent notifications that they would be purged from the eligible voter lists if they did not respond the letter. But, reportedly, the letter was designed to be easily overlooked, perhaps treated as junk mail. Failure to send in a response caused the voter to be removed from the voting roll.

Fitrakis observes, “They aren’t challenging voter eligibility in Republican areas. This is coming from the republican party. They’re not targeting their own base.

Seems like the first post from DailyKOS now has some added validity.

I’m glad someone is doing SOMETHING to stop the GOP from stealing Ohio.  However, this doesn’t mean that all Ohio is safe and sound.  Ohio voters will have to remain at a state of ready for ANY and ALL TRICKS that the GOP is going to try and pull.  Request absentee ballots.  If you aren’t registered then get registered.  If you fail, Ohio is set to be the next “Florida”, a long prepared stolen election.
