Back from Ohio

As I alluded to earlier, I spent the last few days of the election cycle in Cleveland, working directly with, among others, this guy:

“Ecuador has more voting integrity than we have here in East Cleveland today.”

"That is the considered opinion of a Republican attorney who is helping to monitor elections in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. He requested anonymity to avoid drawing attention to his employer. I have known him for years as an honest and very serious patriot and consider his comments reliable. He rang me to discuss the shenanigans that he and other Republican poll watchers have witnessed today in greater Cleveland.” Hijinks Mar Ohio Vote by Deroy Murdock on National Review Online

I’ve done this for several elections, starting with the 2002 Maryland Gubernatorial race. In 2004, I was in Dayton Ohio. It’s necessary but tiresome. You have to show a picture ID card to buy a beer, get on a plane or attend a Barack Obama rally but it is considered voter intimidation to request one at a polling place.

Lax voting law enforcement - which anecdotally seems to be concentrated in big city, heavily Democratic strongholds - is not the reason we lost Ohio but it remains a potent weapon in their arsenal. But nowadays, instead of the strong-armed tactics of a Mayor Daley, they can instead rely on the incompetence of so many election judges as well as the ever-changing softness of election law (i.e, Early Voting, ACORN registrations etc.).

So let’s give thanks once again for the Constitution and the voting fraud firewall of the Electoral College.
