GOP alleging Obama camp traded pizza for Ohio votes



Published: Fri, October 26, 2012 @ 2:05 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Republicans in battleground Ohio allege that Obama for America and state Democrats distributed free pizza at campus rallies as a way to entice college students to vote for the president.

The Ohio Republican Party filed an election complaint Thursday in Franklin County alleging the “Buckeyes for Obama” student organization at Ohio State University violated a law that prohibits offering something of value for a person’s vote.

The party attached an affidavit to the complaint quoting an anonymous student staffer of the Obama campaign who said the campaign has an “unlimited” tab with the pizza chain Donatos for six rallies where student could catch buses to an early-voting center.

The Ohio Democratic Party said the challenge showed confused priorities, when the GOP fought to limit early-voting days in court.

Did the neo-cons mention how they've pushed voter suppression since they got beat the last time? Oops, they forgot to mention that part of the story. the y also forgot to mention GOP voter registration fraud in Florida. I'm sure it was a mere oversight on their behalf.

IslandMike:

You seem to be forgetting about the fraudulent letters sent to Republican voters in Florida, questioning there registration status, indicating that they needed to provide further proof of their status.

You seem to be forgetting about the early voting Romney supporters in SC that indicated their votes were being switched to Obama. This was, of course, just a "glitch" with the voting machines.

You seem to be forgetting that the Democrats themselves in Wisconsin previously insisted that handing out food was a violation of election law, and pressed for legal action against Romney/Ryan.

Island says what?

September 29. 2012 - "...Florida counties have identified possibly fraudulent voter registration forms turned in by a firm working for the state's Republican Party, election officials said today... prosecutors are examining 106 voter registration forms submitted by ONE... worker... the RNC severed its ties to the Virginia firm and filed a voter-fraud complaint."

WOW, Mike! A single worker forged documents and turned them in. The Republicans immediately fired the entire firm and reported the fraudulent activity to the authorities. You sure got 'em on that one Island! Thank you for shining the light of truth and transparency on this terrible issue. Ever hear of Benghazi?

If you want to expose voter intimidation, registration fraud and underhanded dealing, how about this one, Mike?

"Thousands of Florida voters in about 20 of the state’s counties have been receiving fake letters questioning their citizenship status as a way to scare them away from voting... Most of the people who have received the phony letters in their mailboxes are registered Republicans who are US citizens."

Did you miss that one since it was done by dems? Maybe you didn't hear about it until this...

"The FBI is joining an investigation into [THOUSANDS OF] bogus letters sent to many Florida residents, including the Republican Party of Florida chairman, that raise questions about their eligibility to vote. ...They raise questions about the voter's citizenship and appear intended to intimidate people. Officials... said voters who had received the letters so far are white, registered Republicans who consistently vote in elections."

Or this gem of a scumbag dem...

"[Democrat] Congressman's Son Resigns After Voter Fraud Video

Patrick Moran... [an employee and son of] Virginia Democratic Congressman Jim Moran... has resigned after being secretly recorded... advising a... supporter that utility bills could be used to aid in voter fraud."

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-5...

There are many, many more, all of the from the sumbag dems. What was your point again, Mike? You wanted to show everyone how the scum dems ignore the huge problems in their ranks and instead blow everything out of proportion somewhere else?

Mission Accomplished!

Keep going Mike. Millions are seeing the disgusting behavior, attitude and views of the modern left- hatred-filled lunacy one side to the other. Keep running your mouth and keep driving those votes to the only moderates- the Conservatives.

Thanks again!

@southsidedave

I agree that it was very silly that the Democrats started us down this absurd road, when they trumped up their trivial charges against Romney/Ryan in Wisconsin last April.

http://hudson-wi.patch.com/articles/w...

And it is even sillier that the Democrats are displaying their usual blatant hypocrisy by now engaging in the same behavior in Ohio that they previously complained about in Wisconsin.

Silly is a very good word to apply.
