        If he were to twice in a row write deceptive language when he had appropriate language in front of him, it wouldn't be surprising if the court ordered the Ohio First language.

        Knowing that, he may try to bias it less blatantly, but its also harder to get away with after once being called up by the court.

        •  Don't put defying a court past Husted, he has (8+ / 0-)

          already defied and lost when he tried to do it with a federal court.  He will skate up to the line of contempt, and even perhaps cross it.  The Ohio Supreme Court does have the power to disbar him, but I still wouldn't put it past him.

            ... in front of him would, evidently, be a softer ruling than contempt or disbarring.

            If he is trying to run out the clock to miss the deadline for 2012 and push it to the 2013 election, he is making a strategic blunder, since as we saw in 2011, its easier to make an issue the big event in an odd year election. And making the Republican map the big even in an election is going to continue the withering of the Republican party bench at the local level that we saw in 2011.
