The Secretary of State in Ohio, Jon Husted, has upped the ante in his attempt to disenfranchise Democratic voters:
The two Democratic members of the Montgomery County Board of Elections have been fired, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said in a letter released Tuesday afternoon. […]
Husted said in his letter that board members are free to express their discontent with any directive or advisory issued, “but they cannot disobey them.” […]
The move by Husted, the state’s chief elections official, was the latest in a series of flare ups over when Ohioans can cast an early ballot in person in the presidential battleground state. The issue essentially broke down along political party lines. Ohio is one of 32 states, plus the District of Columbia, that allow voters to cast an early ballot by mail or in person without having to give a reason.
And that’s not the worst of it. Just wait until the next post regarding disenfranchisement in Florida.
