Obama will stop at nothing to be elected president
The Obama campaign will do just about anything to win the election in November, but suing Ohio to block a law which extends early voting for members of the military, who have placed their lives on the line for this country is unfathomable!
Tradition has always allowed for special circumstances for military personnel in voting and dates back to the civil war. Republicans traditionally have received the majority of the military vote, and with Ohio being a key battleground state, and no Republican ever being elected without its 18 electoral votes, it’s too important for the Obama campaign to allow extra consideration even for our military personnel and their families.
The Obama campaign sued Republicans DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted, contending Ohio’s two-tiered early voting process violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of equal protection under the law.
Ohio is among 32 states that allow voters to cast an early ballot by mail or in person without an excuse. In 2008, about 30 percent of the swing state’s total vote — or roughly 1.7 million ballots — came in ahead of Election Day.
In addition, state law allows families of armed forces members and civilians overseas to vote through the Monday before an election, while early voting for all other Ohioans ends the preceding Friday. The Nov. 6 election falls on a Tuesday.
The Obama lawsuit said that the latter part of the Ohio law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis” — and that all voters should be able to vote on those days. The campaign seeks a court order invalidating the statute.
Also, the military and their families vote in a higher percentage than other Ohioans.
This action taken by the Obama campaign shows what is important to this president, who has run for office almost continually, since being elected over three and one-half years ago.
