Leauge of Women's Voters Lawsuit Against Ohio Election Officials Gets the Go Ahead

Slow down. Don't get your hopes up, this isn't the beginning of an investigation into Bush's "victory" in 2004, but it is a start that may end up uncovering evidence that could lead to such action. This case has been tied into the recount case and is scheduled to go to trial the week of August 22, 2006. Read the amended complaint here.

''There is no question that LWV (the League) has
alleged actionable constitutional violations,'' Toledo-based U.S. District Judge James Carr wrote on Friday, rejecting the request for dismissal by Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell (aka: co-chair of the Bush-Cheney campaign while running the 2004 election) and Governor Bob Taft. (aka: cog in the wheel that helped "lose" $12 million of the state's Bureau of Workers' Compensation investment money with Tom Noe who has been charged with federal money laundering violations on behalf of the Bush-Cheney campaign) ''What remains is whether Secretary Blackwell and Governor Taft are legally responsible for those violations.''

If they are found to be legally responsible for the violations, then we might just get a chance to attack the horrific system in Ohio.

Best of luck ladies!

In related news, the
state of Ohio has a bill in the works that would prevent the current practice of allowing the chief elections officer to both count votes and stump for candidates. Good job Ohio!
