About 200K Ohio voters have records discrepancies

McCain Demands Obama To Explain Relationship With ACORN


CINCINNATI (AP) - Close to one in every three newly registered Ohio voters will end up on court-ordered lists being sent to county election boards because they have some discrepancy in their records, an elections spokesman said Wednesday.
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner estimated that an initial review found that about 200,000 newly registered voters reported information that did not match motor-vehicle or Social Security records, Brunner spokesman Kevin Kidder said. Some discrepancies could be as simple as a misspelling, while others could be more significant.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati sided with the Ohio Republican Party on Tuesday and ordered Brunner to set up a system that provides those names to county elections boards. The GOP contends the information will help prevent fraud.

"Things already are in motion to comply," Kidder said. "We're working to establish these processes on how we can make this work. The computer work actually began last week."

About 666,000 Ohioans have registered to vote since January.

Brunner previously cross-checked new-voter registrations with databases run by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicle and the Social Security Administration and made the results available online, but the 6th Circuit said the information was not accessible in a way that would help county election boards ferret out mismatches.

Brunner, a Democrat, told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer on Wednesday that she is concerned the court decision is a veiled attempt at disenfranchising voters. Brunner said she'll urge counties not to force these people to use provisional ballots.

The court gave Brunner until Friday to get election boards the information but it was unclear whether that deadline would be met. The court set no penalty for missing the deadline.

County election officials were trying to determine Wednesday how they will respond once they get the information.

"I'm very concerned with these new requirements as we get closer to Election Day," said Steve Harsman, director of the Montgomery County Board of Elections in Dayton. He said his staff already is working 16 hours a day, seven days a week.

"It's clearly going to have an impact in regard to resources we have to expend to resolve discrepancies," said Jeff Hastings, chairman of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in Cleveland.

"We've had about 100,000 (registrations) since January and of those about 34,000 since the primary. We will do whatever is required of us."

Also Wednesday, the Ohio Republican Party said it has filed public records requests with all 88 counties for copies of forms submitted by newly registered voters, especially those who registered and cast an absentee ballot on the same day during a one-week window earlier this month.

Brunner has said that 13,141 Ohioans registered and voted immediately during the window.

"We've seen reports of fraudulent registrations, and we want to see those forms first-hand," said Jason Mauk, the state GOP's executive director.

The dems might actually register enough people to offset 5% of the legitimate voters that the GOP illegally kicks off the voter rolls every election.

Cry me a river.

I thought it wasn't voter fraud until someone actually tried to vote with that information.

In other words, it's not illegal until someone claiming to be Mickey Mouse actually shows up at the poll and tries to vote.

Please correct me if I'm wrong - I know several people will.

This all reads to me like McCain and Co. are just sowing the seeds (har har) of delegitimizing Obama's win. So that if he wins, McCain and Co. can go around pointing fingers to say "Yeah, but they won by cheating."

So basically, same shit, different election, different side pointing the fingers. Debatable as to which side is cheating worse than the others from election to election.

(But I'm still waiting for proof that the Dems are doing anything bad here.)

Maybe they shouldn't write every name off as voter fraud: Bizarre kids names?

I don't know what Obama's, or McCain's which is interestingly not being questioned, long affiliation with the apparently nationwide operating organisation of ACORN directly has to do with a local branch of that organisation recently screwing up and doing a stupid disservice.

You're not wrong.

And there's no proof that the Dems did anything.

i said this a few pages back -- you are correct.

but being correct doesn't give good hysteria, nor does it correctly lay out an "explanation" for why the GOP is likely going to be trounced soon.

i said likely, bitches. back off.

‘Plumber’ says he has no plumbing license

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Joe the Plumber, America's most famous tradesman, said Thursday he doesn't have a license and doesn't need one.

Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, the nickname Republican John McCain bestowed on him during Wednesday's presidential debate, said he works for a small plumbing company that does residential work. Because he works for someone else, he doesn't need a license, he said.

His boss, Al Newell of Newell Plumbing and Heating Co. of Toledo, is a licensed plumbing contractor in Toledo, records show. But anyone working under Newell should have a journeyman’s plumbing license or an apprenticeship license, officials said.

And the county Wurzelbacher and Newell live in, Lucas County, requires plumbers to have licenses, but neither is licensed there
, said Cheryl Schimming of Lucas County Building Regulations, which handles plumber licenses in parts of the county outside Toledo.

Wurzelbacher, who voted in the Republican primary and indicated he backed McCain,
.....

Poor guy. He's turning out to be a real doofus, and it's all because McCain mentioned him 23 times. It's almost similar to Sarah Palin pimping out her pregnant daughter or her DS son in the public spotlight for her own benefit (other pediatricians in my clinic consider that child abuse, btw).
