Wake Up And Smell The Voter PURGE in Ohio

Here we go again,and again, and again! Is there no end to Ken Blackwell's sleaze?

Tell The DNC To WAKE UP And Immediately Seek An Injunction To Reverse The purge Of Democratic Voters In Ohio


You had to know this was coming. The further they fall in the polls the more massive the voter fraud and preemptive vote suppression the other side will attempt. The key word here is "attempt." We're not supposed to let them get away with it without a fight. That fight must start NOW!

Reports are breaking that the pathologically partisan Ohio secretary of state has been secretly using the master database of voters to systematically purge hundreds of thousands of likely Democratic voters from the registered rolls. Their latest version of an old scam is to put a discriminatory burden on voters in heavily Democratic precincts to meet a special hurdle of verification of their address, a "guilty until proven innocent" routine. And they have been doing this without any public notice
that such a massive operation was underway, and timed in such a way that voters would have no recourse to re-register.

Never again will we allow such outrages against democracy to go unchallenged by the fullest force we can bring to bear. Bob Fitrakis, who has been fighting the election criminals in Ohio for years, has announced that he will file a lawsuit no later than this coming Monday. Please tell the DNC, and also the Ohio Democratic party (if you are an Ohio resident), to bring every resource to bear to join in this battle for the soul of our electoral process.


Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours.
