Dep Chair of OH GOP says Reports of Obama Supporters offering Alcohol & Concert Tickets for Vote
Edited on Wed Oct-01-08 07:52 AM by mod mom
I HEARD THIS REPORT ON NPR THIS MORNING AND COULDN'T BELIEVE THEY WOULD STOOP SO LOW (MAYBE I'M NOT SO SURPRISED)

Kevin Dewine: We are already receiving reports from around the state of Democrats and Obama supporters offering everything from alcohol to concert tickets for voter registration and even votes.

The Ohio Secretary of States office says they have received no reports of such activity. Ohios Obama campaign spokesman Isaac Baker completely dismissed the accusation.

We heard this claim in the past before the passing of HB3 (GOP's voter disenfranchisement legislation). Of course, no details ever materialized.

1. It is actually Republican operatives doing the offering.
They're the only ones that think they need to do it.

2. If you even think of believing this you best run down to your local Obama headquarters
Those kids don't have money for signs or buttons or bumper stickers. Total bull! And when you are down there please stick around and volunteer. They need you here in Ohio.

5. What can you expect from a DeWhine?
One of Ohio's leading RethugliKKKlan families...meh. Absurd on it's face; let's see the evidence. These people cannot tell the difference between blatant lies and mere smears. Out with ALL of them!
