Posted on 10/15/2008 8:01:53 PM PDT by XHogPilot
A federal appeals court on Tuesday ordered Ohio's top elections official to set up a system by Friday to verify the eligibility of voters registered since Jan. 1 and make the information available to the state's 88 county election boards.
The full 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati upheld a lower court ruling that Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner must use other government records to check thousands of new voters for registration fraud.
About 666,000 Ohioans have registered to vote since January, with many doing so before the contested Democratic primary election last March between Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Since then, Ohio Republicans have filed a series of challenges to the registrations and Brunner's administration of election rules. They have helped voters file lawsuits against local boards of election over registration rules, absentee ballot requests and a weeklong period that allowed registration and voting on the same day.
Brunner said it's "imperative that voters not be disenfranchised because of federal government red tape, misstated technical information or glitches in databases beyond the control of voters or the secretary of state."
Brunner argued that it would take two to three days to create the necessary computer programs, and said nothing in the federal Help America Vote Act required her to do what the district court ordered.
Ohio Republican Chairman Bob Bennett accused Brunner of pursuing a partisan agenda ...
"Her shameful actions to disenfranchise Republican absentee voters, block the transparency of early voting and refuse the proper verification of newly registered voters have rightfully damaged her credibility as a nonpartisan election administrator," he said.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
I was on the DU reading their garbage and in response to this their comments were something like “the Republicans will do anything.” Are they really the dumbest people on earth or is it just a facade to fake us out?
This is good news. ACORN is hurting Obama.
The court should have added that if they cannot all be validated per the deadline, then the ones not addressed don’t get to vote. Finally, the court should have added that the ACORN registrations should be checked last since they have the highest probability of being fraudulent.
That would be justice.
Start calling for her resignation. She is obviously in over her head and incompetent.

I don't think the people at DU are dumb. They are intelligent and very dangerous. A very different philosophy guides them. The liberal philosophy includes:
My take on this is:
The critical problem with communism is the communists.
Truth to the Left is that which advances their goals. Factuality is irrelevant.
