    is already talking about their protest demonstrations.

    The 2012 presidential election actually ran very smoothly here in Cleveland (I was working the cycle at the Board of Elections). Secretary of Voter Suppress ... I mean STATE ... Jon Husted pulled out every trick in the book and kept getting slammed down by the courts, even the U.S. Supreme Court. I remember seeing the copies of the grudging directives from Husted that he was doing the right thing (because he was ordered to) landing on our desks.

    2004 was the clusterfuck. They'd love another clusterfuck in 2016 (although courts are already blocking some of Husted's actions). We need to dump Husted this November and replace him with Nina Turner who will see that EVERYONE has the same access to the ballot box, regardless of age, race, partisan leanings (although she's fond of saying "I HOPE they will vote our way!) or anything else.

      your friends there- in Minneapolis the repugnicans and the sherriff's department set up "free speech areas" blocks away from the convention and ... well, you know.
      Cleveland's a pretty tough town and I am counting on you all up there to represent me.
      Wish I could be there.

      I buy and sell well trained riding mules and American Mammoth Jack Stock.
