He got the idea from Al Gore.
Breitbart News’ Mike Flynn broke the news that the Obama campaign was suing in the swing state of Ohio to block a law that extends early voting for members of the military for an additional three days. A fierce battle erupted, with Democrats (and a few conservatives) arguing that Obama campaign was simply trying to extend the military’s privilege to everyone else. Regardless of the remedy they seek, Flynn points out, they are suing to end an exemption for military voters. It would not be the first time Democrats–who pretend, in their fight against voter ID, to want more ballot access–have tried to stop the military’s votes from counting.
……In 2008, for example, the State of Virginia (a critical swing state in 2012) had failed to send absentee ballots to members of the military on active duty in time for them to complete the ballots and return them before the election. When the campaign of Republican nominee Sen. John McCain sued to compel the state to count military ballots that had arrived after election day, the State Board of Elections–then run by Democrats, appointed by a Democratic governor–argued, effectively, that it could send absentee ballots to the military a day before the election and still be in compliance with the law.
Obama, like his Dem pals, doesn’t like the military anyway, and has more concern over “gay rights” for those in uniform than voting rights.
The Dems also make sure that dead people, fabricated registered names, and illegals are part of their voting bloc every election cycle.
Right here in Ohio, our former illustrious Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, abetted voter fraud (including ACORN)and the 6th District Court of Appeals gave its blessing. In addition, out-of-state Dem voters took up a temporary residence for the sole purpose of fraudulently voting for their boy Obama; taking advantage of a huge loophole in Ohio law. Ohio requires that you live within its borders for 30 days prior to registration with the intent to stay after the election. They voted and left the state.
Boss Tweed would be proud.
