Lawyers: Request for sanctions over election challenge frivolous

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The lawyers behind an aborted challenge of the presidential election told the Ohio Supreme Court they presented a convincing argument and shouldn't be sanctioned.

The four lawyers said in legal documents filed Friday that the challenge they filed on behalf of 37 voters included enough evidence of voting irregularities to back up their allegations of widespread fraud.

The filing was in response to a request on Jan. 19 by Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro to sanction lawyers Cliff Arnebeck, Robert Fitrakis, Susan Truitt and Peter Peckarsky.

Petro's motion, filed on behalf of Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, said the election challenge was meritless and filed for partisan political purposes. Petro's office argued the challenge presented little evidence and instead relied on theories and conjectures.

1. I hope the court isn't as brazenly partisan as Blackwell
Finally, Blackwell has something for which he DOES have undeniable expertise: "meritless" work and and "filing for partisan political purposes." Unfortunately he's indulged his drive for bootlicking his way up whatever political mob will advance him and his apparently compulsive lying habit again.

Blackwell obviously believes that the more outrageous he is, the better the GOP powers will like it. It's like a new mobster cutting off a finger to show commitment and loyalty. I hope the court slaps him down in no uncertain terms.

I also hope there will be that much more of an opportunity to publicize the outrages against fair elections in Ohio. Blackwell is pure scum and his every action shouts it. I have to wonder if some of his GOP patrons may wonder if he's a bit TOO eager to please. After all, can't have the sleeping homeowners getting restless while the night burglars are quietly stealing them blind.
