You may have heard that Obama wants to stop extended voting for the military in Ohio. That is completely false.
Mitt Romney is attacking the Obama campaign for suing the state of Ohio for restore right to vote early, as was the case in the 2008 election.
The Romney campaign is arguing that the Obama camp is actually trying to limit military voting. And his supporters are eating the claim up on Facebook, where Romney posted the claim. But as the day goes by even rightwing commentators seem to be realizing that this is simply a lie.
The whole episode is tailor made to expose how corrupted the press corps is. The entire thing is a demonstrable lie, and all in the service of keeping vote participation as low as possible. In other words, a Fehrnstrom Special. Very curious to see whether the biggs report it as such.
Wow, I just had a look at the Facebook page linked above. Sure are a lot of people taking Mitt’s word for it.
Early voting in Ohio has ran up until Monday before the election (aka the day before). A new rule would end early voting on Friday, while letting military personnel still vote until Monday.
Obama’s lawsuit extends the early voting period back to Monday for Everyone, instead of it only being the Military with the extra time. The lawsuit has no bearing at all on the time that service members have to vote.
But who ever let a little thing like facts get in the way…especially when you know how much of the Republican base won’t bother to look at what the lawsuit is and are so full of hate for Obama that they’ll rally against anything negative said about him, no matter how easy it is to prove that it’s a lie?
