Obama Workers Withdraw 13 Illegal Ballots in Ohio

The New York Post is reporting that 13 campaign workers for Obama withdrew their registrations and ballots in Ohio.  It appears that the prosecutor’s kind reminder that temporary residents aren’t allowed to vote in Ohio prompted the withdrawal.  I guess the threat of a felony charge is a good motivator.

It’s a shame to see either side illegally moving votes to try to steal a battleground state.  It will be harder for the Obama camp to separate itself from this like it did with ACORN.  So far I have not seen anything come across the wire for McCain volunteers facing the same issues.

Volunteer Made Up Story About Mutiliation

Yesterday, a woman claimed that she was robbed and mutilated after using an ATM in Pittsburgh.  KDKA is reporting that the woman had inconsistencies in her story and eventually admitted to making the story up.  In a way, this is a good thing (that someone didn’t actually perpetrate this act)… in another, it’s absolutely disgusting that the woman, 20-year-old Ashley Todd, made this story up.

Acts like this are what feed blind partisanship.  It does not further anyone’s campaign, and does not move forward the political discussion.

The woman will face charges.  Police have not yet disclosed what the charges will be.

Obama Fundraising Falling, McCain Close in Cash

With the polls narrowing and momentum appearing to shift towards McCain, now is not the time to start having fundraising problems for Obama.  According to the Associated Press, Obama only raised $36 million in the first two weeks of October.  That’s drastically slower than the $150 he raised in September.  In that same two week October period, he spent $105 million, double the spending pace he had in September.

According to The Patriot Room, McCain is only trailing Obama by about $10 million in funds.  That could tighten up the advertising exposure, a key for changing the minds of undecided voters this late in the race.

Obama Stands By “Spread the Wealth” Comment

Many have questioned Obama’s “spread the wealth” answer to Joe the plumber’s question.  He has been getting hammered by the McCain campaign and even appears to be losing some ground in the polls.  Obama’s tax plan is being evaluated as bad for business since two-thirds of businesses would face a tax increase on their profits.  Still, Obama continues to stand by his comments that spreading the wealth is a good strategy.  This video seems a bit edited, if someone has a link to a more complete one, please post it in the comments and I’ll update this post.

McCain Volunteer Mutilated in Pittsburgh

A 20-year-old woman was robbed outside an ATM last night in Pittsburgh.  The woman, a McCain volunteer from Texas, says she had just withdrawn money from an ATM.  The robber, reported as a dark-skinned black male, 6′ 4″ and 200 pounds, approached the woman with a knife and took $60 from her.

She retreated to her car, which has McCain stickers on it and the man became agitated.  He punched her in the back of the head, kicked her, pushed her to the ground, and carved the letter ‘B’ into her face.  Unfortunately, the attack happened outside of the view of the ATM camera.
