2. If they act in a partisan manner

then, to me, they are not at all fine. They are supposed to be fair and even-handed.

4. In Minnesota our Secretary of State is both partisan and fair and even handed

He is a very staunch Democrat but he runs what may be the most transparent system in the nation and makes sure everyone can see that the votes are being counted fairly and accurately. The recounts he has administrated may have taken a while but they were the most transparent elections most people had ever witnessed.

6. He is a partisan Secretary of State though

The point is your subject line is far too broad. I would argue that the Secretary of State should be a non-partisan position, but the fact is that in most states it is not non-partisan. If your subject line were to be taken literally then most of our Secretary of States would be in prison. If you made a simple change in wording to change the word partisan to something like "crooked" or "corrupt" then I would fully agree with you. I believe the Secretary of States of OH, FL, and AZ should do prison time because there were obvious attempts to disenfranchise legal voters in those states.

7. Here is the blog post

They are more than subject lines:
"First off, let’s note that Secretary Of State (SOS) has the same acronym as Sack Of S*** (SOS). Coincidence? Mr. Blunt and Cranky thinks not.

http://mobile.cleveland.com/advcleve/pm_29204/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=yS5XCPR9 is a link to a story that shows just how much of a scum-sucking partisan is Mr. J. Husted, and how pissed off the judiciary is getting with his reindeer games. He has spent loads of scarce taxpayer money trying to suppress Dem voters, all with the blessing of Kasich and the rest of the “Republican” yahoos that run the State-level government here in O-H-I-O. Indeed, he has gone all the way up the judicial ladder with his sleazy, unconstitutional power plays and been shot down like a skeet on almost every occasion. But does he stop? Nooooooooo. He keeps on keeping on in his quest to steal the next election (since he failed miserably this time), and be damned to those who want free and fair elections: or even those who just want him to stop wasting our money.

Nor is he the only SOS who is stinking up the joint: in Kansas, they have a jackass who is busy trying to get every non-lily-white person in the U.S. deported (even if they were born here). Any of those swarthy folk he can’t boot out, he is trying to remove from the state voter rolls. Citizens there are trying to recall his ass, so far without success.

And let’s not even talk about the malodorous SOS in Florida, who is working with Rick Scott to make his state into a bigger banana republic (and laughingstock) than it already is. Yes, you thought it couldn’t happen: but they are giving it their all. Bless their pointed little heads.

These “people” are required to be fair and impartial: they don’t even pretend anymore. Or, if they are pretending, not much of anybody is buying their act. But they continue trying to steal elections, disenfranchise voters, waste our hard-earned and generally making a mockery of the oaths they swore.

Throw ‘em in prison (since we aren’t allowed to use stocks in the village square anymore) and let them rot. We do that to criminals who steal cars: we should most certainly do it to politicians who are stealing whole state governments. Perhaps the next politician who “serves” as SOS will take the lesson and actually do the job he promised to do.

Mr. B & C"
