While a fourth woman has come forward to say that Herman Cain tried - sexually - to screw her, his "brothers by a different mother," the Koch Brothers, are continuing their efforts to economically screw the American middle class. But are we going to see politicus interruptus? With elections in Ohio to determine the fate of the radical anti-union law known as SB-5 - Republican Governor John Kasich and his buddies are doing anything they can to stop repeal of the law he has lusted over. So on Friday - Ohio Republicans prematurely ended early voting to keep people away from the polls. The Ohio Secretary of State - Jon Husted - who also has a cozy relationship with ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council - ordered the polling stations to be closed despite the fact that early voting in Ohio has always been available to the public in previous elections. But this election is different, due to a new law - passed by Republicans in the state legislature - that conveniently took effect last week and bars early voting three days before an election. And as we all know - this latest effort to cut off people from the polls is "just the tip" of right-wing voter suppression efforts around the country. So how might this rejection of democracy affect tomorrow's vote? And will Governor John Kasich get any satisfaction?
