Ohio, Banana Republic
According to the Toledo Blade, the Ohio GOP is appealing a federal court decision to halt its challenges to around 23,000 voter registrations. If they get their way, these voters will receive provisional ballots tomorrow. Money quote from the Board of Elections director in Sandusky County: "This is a joke," said Ms. Tuckerman, who said her office has been flooded with phone calls since the challenges were filed. "It is becoming a banana republic. I'm beginning to think we should load our guns and fight it out on the street.''
