Lawsuit filed by Obama campaign

This just in from Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner:

Brunner received notification five minutes before the close of polls that the Obama campaign had filed an action in federal court in Cleveland to keep polling locations in Cuyahoga, Clermont and Franklin counties open until 9 p.m.

The campaign withdrew the Clermont County request.

A judge denied the Franklin County request.

The Cuyahoga County request was pared by the court down to 21 precincts in the City of Cleveland. The Secretary of State's office received Judge Tim Oliver's order at 9:05 p.m., after the time the Obama campaign asked for polls to remain open - 9:00 p.m.

Polls closed in Cuyahoga County at the scheduled time of 7:30 p.m. The board undertook the necessary efforts to reopen the 21 polls until 9 p.m.

Boards have also begun to submit results as they were directed with the closing of Sandusky County polls at 9 p.m.

From what I can see, there were potentially 1000s of people disenfranchised from the voting process across Ohio, either due to polling stations running out of ballots or by other irregularities, such as widescale power outages throughout Cuyahoga county. The Obama staff should call out these problems and file a lawsuit to have the Ohio vote thrown out. The only way to have a fair vote in Ohio would be to have another vote.

Ahhhhh yes......The old fringe liberal strategery. When it doesnt go your way, sue and sue and sue again until it does go your way. I blame Ken Black....wait...The Republicans arent in charge in Ohio anymore. How could this have happened???!!!

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.

Obama begins to panic. This is the beginning of the END. It was exciting for a couple of weeks when Obama was an unknown, good orator. The skeletons are coming out of the closet.
