Supreme Court Backs Dems on Ohio ACORN Issue

The US Supreme Court today ruled that the Ohio GOP does not have standing to file suit.  This means that Democratic Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner doesn’t have to abide by the 6th Circuit Court’s earlier ruling that she implements some voter fraud prevention.

This is a travesty for Ohio and the nation.  Some 200,000 of nearly 666,000 new voters have records that don’t match government databases.  This is not about voter disenfranchisement, this is about preventing voter fraud.  When nearly 1/3 of your new voters are in question, there is a problem.  The Board of Elections simply doesn’t have the resouces to handle this.

Anyone that is confident in the system at this point is insane.  Between cries of Diebold fraud on the left and voter registration fraud on the right, where is the confidence at?  I know many people are angry at the tactics that ACORN is using, I am one of them.  When you hear stories of people being bribed to register 72 times, how can you feel safe in the process?

Palin Visits West Chester

Personal Photo from Palin EventI had the privledge of being able to attend the Palin rally in West Chester, Ohio today.  It was an absolutely fantastic event.  I’d guestimate 3,000-4,000 attended, though I will warn that I’m not great at estimating!  I took a load of pictures with my brand new Canon XSi (available on Flickr), one of them is now the banner for the site!

Palin made a point to stress Obama’s links to ACORN.  Given the importance of ACORN’s activities in Ohio, it was perfect for the crowd.  She made the call to the Obama campaign to release all their communications with ACORN to the public.  Given Obama’s quick move to distance himself from ACORN (as he has done with all his associations sofar in the campaign), it is unlikely he will.  Sarah also gave a great one-liner along the lines of not letting Obama turn the Buckeye State into the ACORN State, which got a great response from the energetic crowd.

Southwest Ohio, particularly Butler County is safe territory for McCain/Palin.  Boehner has a solid hold on this area of the state.  The key here is to keep the base energized so that turnout is high to counteract the rest of the state (especially the voter fraud being perpetrated by groups such as ACORN).

If you get a chance to attend one of a Palin rally, I highly recommend it.  She is an excellent and energetic speaker and isn’t afraid to bring her points home bluntly.

McCain Only Down 2 in Gallup Poll

The latest Gallup Poll shows McCain has shrunk Obama’s lead.  McCain now trails Obama 47-49 among likely voters.  Perhaps Obama’s exposed “share the wealth views” (thanks to Joe the plumber) is starting to push him down a bit.
