Blackwell Violates Ohio State Law?
Advertisements [?]
This deserves a new thread, and do we want to media blast it?

The thread records evidence that Blackwell ordered an election official to deny a voter access to poll books.

Then Carolab posted this.

< 3599.16.1> 3599.161. Prohibiting inspection of election records.

(A) The director of elections, deputy director of elections, or an employee of the board of elections designated by the director or deputy director shall be available during normal office hours to provide any person with access to the public records filed in the office of the board of elections.

(B) No director of elections, deputy director of elections, or employee of the board of elections designated by the director or deputy director shall knowingly prevent or prohibit any person from inspecting, under reasonable regulations established and posted by the board of elections, the public records filed in the office of the board of elections. Records relating to the declination of a person to register to vote and to the identity of a voter registration agency through which any particular person registered to vote are not public records for purposes of this section.

(C) Whoever violates division (B) of this section is guilty of prohibiting inspection of election records, a minor misdemeanor, and shall, upon conviction, be dismissed from his position as director of elections, deputy director of elections, or employee of the board of elections.

HISTORY: 137 v H 86 (Eff 8-26-77); 145 v S 300. Eff 1-1-95.

The effective date is set by section 3 of SB 300.

This looks like Blackwell may have done something contrary to Ohio statute which, if he did do it, would mandate his dismissal. I word this cautiously because libel law comes into play here. So let's be careful how we discuss it, but let's also not fail to seize the moment.
