Brunner: "Obama campaign is cherrypicking counties"
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner just told Enquirer reporters Michelle Bollman and Allison D'Aurora that the Obama campaign "is cherrypicking counties" in an attempt to allow voters more time to vote in certain counties, including Cuyahoga County.
Brunner is appealing an order by Judge Tim Oliver in Cleveland allowing polls to stay open there until 9 p.m.
Oliver ordered polls left open another 90 minutes in 21 precincts, Brunner said.
"There are no reports of voters turned away,'' Brunner said.
The available ballots are running low, she said, causing longer lines, but no disenfranchisement.
A Clinton aide criticized the Obama strategy, which he said was aimed at delaying results until 2 a.m. so a decisive victory could not be announced on prime time news.
