Board of Elections: 3 out of 4 Ohioans don’t count.

…Now what are you going to do about it?

We have all heard Stalin’s (attributed-perhaps falsely) quote, “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes”. Whether he said this or not, the essential meaning is, “As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it?” Unfortunately, this is an apt introduction to the candidacy for Ohio Attorney General, namely, Steve Christopher of Findlay Ohio’s TEA Party.


Last evening, my husband received unofficial word that of the over 2,700 signatures that he turned in on his petitions to get him on the ballot for Ohio Attorney General, over 2,000 of them were deemed “invalid” by Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner. I think you would agree that this is highly unprecedented.

At this time, we are optimistically waiting to review and audit the signatures. We have not received any official word regarding the validity of the signatures. We will be conducting an internal audit and verification to vet the signatures we did obtain. At the time that we vet the signatures and obtain official word on why the signatures were rejected, we will make a determination and advise everyone as to the direction we will take.

As you can see, there are some very compelling differences between Steve’s positions and Mike DeWine’s voting record.

    There has been some new news about those signatures. It seems that Brunners office claims to have only received 788 signatures to validate. What happened to those other 1,962 signatures? Are they lost? Maybe tucked away in an “oops” area? Maybe just omitted on purpose? I don’t know the answers, but somebody must be accountable for this blunder. Read the press release in the Daytondailynews. It has the story in black and white.
    I must mention that out of those 788 they do claim to have received 638 were found to be valid. With a percentage like that, there would be no question that Christopher would be on the Republican ticket this next primary. Maybe that thought is to scary for those professional politicians in Columbus. I am sure the Christopher camp will be doing their best to pursue the next avenue to vindicate themselves, and get their rightful place on the ticket, so the voters in Ohio can truly voice their opinion.

    Steve Christopher turned in 2750 signatures and was given a receipt for that number. I wonder myself where most of those went? My husband and I gathered signatures in Knox County and we are helping confirm these signatures. This had better turn out okay!! We gathered those signatures in the 10 day time frame before the Feb 18th deadline, in horrible weather. It wasn’t easy.
