    would be interesting candidates to run against Husted when his term is up. Firing people for doing their jobs is...unAmerican, among other things. Misusing your publicly paid position to deliberately attempt to undermine the democratic process is also...unAmerican, not to mention immoral, unethical and blatantly corrupt.

    One of those two gentlemen should begin a campaign committee today, using Husted's blatantly unethical misuse of his office as their key campaign message. Not to mention Husted's blatantly racist and anti-worker behavior.
    How could every single resident of Ohio not be outrage by Husted's behavior.

      Both are older guys unknown outside their home county which is battling a tradition of weak Democratic turnout. If they don't get rid of Mike "Who?" Turner this November, I wish Montgomery would secede from Ohio.

      (Here's Sharen Neuhardt's website and she's got a shot — she's getting support from national groups, and the GOP has panicked is dumping money to shore up this once very safe seat:

      We need someone like a David Pepper — a fierce young gun who has already run one statewide race and did well in a bad Democratic year, earning name recognition far from his home base. And who just reminded his Facebook friends "So the Secretary of State fires two officials who wanted to keep the expanded weekend hours of prior elections....but doesn't say a word about the Franklin County election official who boasted that the effort to restrict voting was based on the race of the voters likely impacted by the restrictions."

      Yeah, Husted, what about firing the Republican BoE member from Franklin County who said we can't "distort" the process to accommodate "the urban — read African-American — voter turnout machine"?

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
