As some of you may recall, late last year we had ourselves an election. Americans exercised their right to vote — a right that countless Americans have died to protect.
And about 18,800 Ohioans tried to cheat you out of that right.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio’s top elections official says more than 80% of provisional ballots cast in the November presidential election were counted.
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner says voters cast about 207,000 provisional ballots, roughly 3.6% of all ballots cast. About 167,000 were counted.
About 47% of provisional ballots rejected in November were because the voter wasn’t registered in Ohio.
Yep. 18,800 people who were registered in a completely different State took the time to stand in long lines and fill out provisional ballots in the always important swing State that is Ohio.
I’d post the part of the article where Sec. of State Brunner describes how she is going to make sure these people are charged to the fullest extent of the law, but alas, there was no mention of it.
Election fraud continues to get worse in this country. Now Brunner may point back at this being an instance of her office doing its job right. After all, these people didn’t have their vote counted, right? Unfortunately, that’s not good enough.
Why? Well for one, we don’t know if she successfully identified everyone that fraudulently voted. And two, if no one is prosecuted for breaking election law, then there is no disincentive to try it again.
Every legal vote counts, or at least it should, Secretary Brunner. So please, do your job.
Think it doesn’t matter? Tell that to Florida in 2000 or Minnesota right now.
