Obama campaign, DNC sue Ohio to restrict military voting

The Obama re-election campaign, along with the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed a lawsuit in Ohio to strike down part of that state's law regarding military voting, Breitbart.com reported Thursday.

"Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election," Mike Flynn wrote. Military members, he added, are "given three extra days to do so."

Flynn says he thinks the extra time is "entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women's time and their obligations to their sworn duty."

No Exceptions

Rights are equal, no exceptions.

Plenty of people have "duties" to fulfill. It's a great idea to give them the extra time, but then everyone should have the extra time, because who's to say whose time is more valuable?

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

This is all one big media lie

I have family in Ohio. This case isn't about the military. Ohio changed there voting laws. All people in Ohio could vote up to 3 days before the election. This was because of 2004. People were waiting up to 4 hours to vote. Then this year they changed it to only military. Its about all Ohio voters. The media is trying to spin this about the military. Well foxnews is anyways. They wrote this article on there own then all the media outlets picked it up. The GOP are the ones who changed this law to there advantage to make sure voters were suppressed like in 2004.

Then it is NOT a media lie if what you say is true

"Then this year they changed it to only military."

You took one line from my

You took one line from my paragraph. It is a media lie. This was set up by the GOP to be a lawsuit. They took all Ohioans voter from being able to vote 3 days early to only the military. The lawsuit only wants to replace that law to back to what it was before. It doesn't say it wants to stop military from voting 3 days early. Foxnews is spinning it as if the democrats want to stop the military from voting.
