No, this is not some right-wing fantasy reported on Fox News. It’s real. Cincinnati.com reports that an army of attorneys has descended on the state both from the Obama side and from the Romney side.
[A]s Election Day approaches, the first wave of lawyers already is swarming over Ohio to prepare for the possibility that the election may be decided not just at the polls, but in court.
New regulations in Ohio will likely cause the number of provisional ballots cast to skyrocket over the 2008 number of 40,000. The court scenario is very real, and we may not know who won Ohio for weeks.
Pollsters say that turnout will determine the outcome. There are more registered voters who say they favor Obama, but there are more likely voters who favor Romney, says the Gallup Poll released today. The Republican Secretary of State in Ohio has tried his best to restrict the number of days for early voting in the state (an attempt finally lost before the Supreme Court) and has shortened the number of hours of early voting for the three days before the election (compared to last year). Huge lines are reported today in Ohio for early voting, with some waits reaching 6 hours. All of this hurts turnout and helps Romney.
I believe that the vote is sacred in a democracy and any attempt to make it difficult for a legal voter to vote is the most heinous crime there is against democracy.
