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.

Cherry picking, not so much. Clermont was running short on ballots - I for one wouldn't want to wait around for an indeterminate amount of time while waiting for the sheriff to deliver the ballots. Cuyahoga had crap weather all day. Cherrypicking, hardly.

Clinton media whore manipulation tired and tyrannical. These people are the second coming of Rove, with Dick Morris as guru

Maybe if all those people who voted for John Edwards (!) had instead voted for Obama.

Can 38,000 morons be wrong?

This is why it's fun to watch libs eat each other. Resorting to undemocratic courts usually works for them, because they were packed years ago by liberals for liberals, but it won't work for Hussein. Why? Because they were packed by Clintons! Ted Strickland? Good freind of the Clintons! In this particular case, when Michelle OB says life's unfair, she's right, because of all the years she and her freinds spent rigging things for the Clintons is now backfiring on them. Go ahead, count again! This cannibalism would be great theatre, if only OH taxpayers didn't have to pick up the tab every time a commie has a hissy.
