THOSE STUPID CONFUSED VOTERS  1:43 pm September 5, 2012

Ohio Secretary of State John Husted Refuses to Comply With Court Order That Would ‘Confuse’ Voters

by Kris E. Benson

let's see if you have a birthday party this yearRemember when Ohio Republican Secretary of State John Husted tried to extend voting hours in Republican counties, and then when everyone bitched and moaned about it he was all FINE, I WILL TURN THIS CAR AROUND AND NO ONE GETS WEEKEND VOTING, and then it came out that this was all part of a heroic plan to save the election from being sullied by certain kinds of voters? Well, now Jon Husted has had it with all of these shenanigans and with the contortions of the electoral process. This has become too darned confusing, all these voting hours being extended and then not extended and then extended for everyone except for “urban” people and whatnot, so he’s refusing to comply with a court order to expand voting hours so that voters are not “confused.”

From Think Progress:

Jon Husted, Republican Secretary of State in Ohio, is refusing to change his restrictive early voting schedule even after a federal court restored in-person early voting to all Ohioans during the three day period before the general election. Husted claims expanding hours before an appeals court hears his case will “only serve to confuse voters.” Husted first restricted the voting hours in Democratic-leaning urban counties to weekdays only, then restricted all counties’ voting schedules after complaints of unfairness. In spite of several counties’ requests to stay open on weekends, when most employed people have time to vote, Husted has flatly refused to accommodate them.

What an American treasure, looking out for Ohioans and making sure that they can go through their day without being confused by, you know, Democracy.

So if this guy goes to prison for refusing to comply what else will he refuse to comply with and what will the outcome be?

tihond September 5, 2012 at 1:49 pm

I wouldn't be so sure he'd refuse to comply. Looks like he has a "wide stance" to me.

no_gravity September 5, 2012 at 1:57 pm

And a purty smile.

MittBorg September 5, 2012 at 2:53 pm

It's no fun if they don't struggle a LITTLE, at least.

Wadisay September 5, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I hope he does go to prison because he thinks President Romney will pardon him.

Butt-p[lumbing. And if you don't believe that, you've never been to prison or known anyone who has.

A male Republican going to prison?

I don't get it.

Sure, the governor could send in the Ohio National Guard. What could possibly go wrong?

The governor's not the only one with the authority to deploy National Guard troops…

prommie September 5, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Well this is interesting. How many troops does Mr. Husted command?

FakaktaSouth September 5, 2012 at 2:01 pm

He hopes he commands just enough to make sure the election goes whatever evil cheating way he's plotting over and to create a ring around his house when the law comes to get his criminal ass. I wish there really was going to be a door busting. I know, I know.

Boojum September 5, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Maybe we could have a door busting party?

And this morning Eric Holder was heard saying OK Bitch, game on.

prommie September 5, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Oh, sure, you mean the Holder who never met a fight he couldn't weasel away from? Fucking empty fucking suit do-nothing shitbag Holder?

fartknocker September 5, 2012 at 2:09 pm

I was being snarky Prommie. If I was the USAG I would have a pillory set up on every corner of Wall Street with bankers and economists strapped in. What a great motivator it would be for honesty in finance.

prommie September 5, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Man, Holder is the greatest most glaring sign of Obama's fucking worthlessness there is. Not A Fucking Thing has been done about any of the Bush crimes, not a fucking thing. Look over here, we decided not to fight for the validity of DOMA, thats the only fucking thing he has done thats at all something, anything, that the democrats who elected him wanted. Token issue, a distraction, from the continuing domination of the military industrial complex, the finance industry, and the oil companies (Obama covered up every fucking thing about how bad the BP spill was and still is in the Gulf, its criminal).

ibwilliamsi September 6, 2012 at 11:32 am

Is he a "Shitbag Holder", or the "shitbag, Holder"? I love puns!

RedneckMuslin September 5, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Isn't he the one going after Bush, Cheney, and Rove for…. Wait, that still hasn't happened yet.

prommie September 5, 2012 at 2:11 pm

The holder who stopped the torture and extraordinary rendition and prosecuted those responsible? The Holder who went after the banksters who nearly destroyed western civilization with their unchecked greed and fraud? The Holder who took a stand on Gitmo and military tribunals?

The only legal issue holder ever did any fucking thing on was gay marriage. The lesson is: the dems use token hot button social issues to distract us from the fact that they are the fully owned tools of Wall Street, just like the republicans do.

Lascauxcaveman September 5, 2012 at 2:18 pm

LOL, you're harshing my DNC buzz, dude.

pdiddycornchips September 5, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Holder is only the AG. Policy decisions are made by someone else. All this is to say, Hopey sets the policy on shit like extraordinary rendition, GITMO and whether or not to pursue charges against the last administration. Holder has been pretty aggressive about going after Voting Rights Act violations.

prommie September 5, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Didn't he just announce last week there will be no charges and no action against Goldman Sachs? I know, I know, this is all on Obama, thats what I am saying. Lesser of two evils. Continued unchecked capitalism, greed, growing economic inequality, dismantling the public school system (the Obama education policy is gung ho for Booker style privatization), only with a little band aid and less gay-hating, thats the difference between a republican and a democratic admin, far as I can see.

pdiddycornchips September 5, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Hey, I agree wholeheartedly. I was a proud PUMA and still believe she would have been a far better choice. But this time, with Paul Ryan on the ticket, I have to put that shit aside and vote for Hopey. If they win, we will have four or eight years of Mittens and then another decade of Ryan. That fucker is the Anti-Christ.

Baconzgood September 5, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Voting like we did in the last election will only confuse people see. So we changed it all around for the soldiers and white people.

KeepFnThatChicken September 5, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Oh, I don't know what his problem is. The Diebold voting machines don't even record black votes anyway.

Crank_Tango September 5, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Ah so it's not a fingerprint scanner, just a darkness detector? Ingenious!

tihond September 5, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Butterfly ballot libel!

ibwilliamsi September 6, 2012 at 11:34 am

Isn't the first Tuesday in November STILL election day? Because if people are "confused" by early voting, I think that the "confused" can STILL vote on the first Tuesday of November until 8 PM. They can just stay home on the other days.

Husted, why are you so afraid of not employing the Free Market of ideas?

Terry September 5, 2012 at 1:52 pm

These guys seem to be genuinely shocked each and every time they get caught trying to restrict people's ability to vote. Apparently, the Koch brothers, or whomever is pulling the strings, forgot to mention that there might be opposition to the maneuvers.

tessiee September 5, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Remember what we discussed about certain so-called "human beings" being ot-nay oo-tay art-smay.

Ruhe September 5, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Interesting that you mention the Koch brothers as I'm suspecting that this really comes down to a labor dispute, the Koch's forte. They can't allow weekend voting because if they did then Diebold would have to pay their engineers time and half to work on rigging the machines on those weekends. The Kochs won't support paying overtime so screw the engineers and close the polls, problem solved.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 5, 2012 at 1:52 pm

In his defense, this guy does look like he confuses easily.

RadioBowels September 5, 2012 at 2:05 pm

You mean confuses himself as well as others.

kittensdontlie September 5, 2012 at 2:27 pm

And too many Ohioans are confusing him with someone who gives a f*ck.

Joshua Norton September 5, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Kid_Charlemagne September 5, 2012 at 1:53 pm

I am sure this is a just a simple misunderstanding. I would think a 6'5" 230 pound federal marshall could probably straighten this out rather quickly.

This is about legitimate and illegitimate voting, isn't it.

*sigh*

no_gravity September 5, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Forcible/non-forcible.

Kakkeltje September 5, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Only legitimate voting can cause pregnant chads.

tessiee September 5, 2012 at 2:31 pm

I would have thought that by now, Diebold would have fixed up the machines to simply expel the illegitimate votes.

emmelemm September 5, 2012 at 2:47 pm

It's got systems in place to shut things down.

actor212 September 5, 2012 at 2:37 pm

You can't get elected with legitimate voting

LesBontemps September 5, 2012 at 1:54 pm

A bit too "on the nose." Would it kill him to make just some effort at craftiness? Sheesh, the standards for villainy are really slipping.

OurHoboSenator September 5, 2012 at 1:54 pm

All those months he spent not pooping have led to Husted being completely full of shit…

sharethegrief September 5, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Holder, don't send in the Ohio National Guard. It could be dangerous.

BaldarTFlagass September 5, 2012 at 2:05 pm

So these same masterminds of voting fraud and identity theft and stealing elections are confused by voting times? He's smart.

MissTaken September 5, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Husted claims expanding hours before an appeals court hears his case will “only serve to confuse voters.”

I checked the mail on Monday, but there was no mail to check. Confused, I went home. Then I remembered! It was Labor Day! My confusion was no more. I checked the mail on Tuesday, and there was mail. And it was good.

Hammiepants September 5, 2012 at 1:57 pm

These guys are even TRYING to be stealthy anymore. They're just straight-up prevaricating weaseldicks, and they apparently don't care who knows that. I know a riot is an ugly thing, but the constituents in these districts with these fucking bigoted fucktards should be out in the street with torches and pitchforks running them out of town on a rail.

Mittens Howell, III September 5, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I'm confused. I thought democracy was about voting.

duh, me.

Me_K_Cong September 5, 2012 at 2:02 pm

He isn't going to open polls, because it will confuse voters to have the polls open? What an obtuse little fucker he is.

actor212 September 5, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Now now, he has a point: blahs have had so many doors slammed in their faces, they might become confused.

LastGasp September 5, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Take heart, conservative wing-nuts, Husted has "simplified" the ballot so that only Mitt Romney's name is legible on the ballot. The other guy is listed as what looks to be Berdelback O'Bannesey.

BaldarTFlagass September 5, 2012 at 2:03 pm

We're gonna need a bigger vote!

Things that are confusing:
Showing up to your polling place when the court said it would be open and finding it locked up tight.
Showing up to vote at the right time and having to wait in line so long the polls close before you can vote and/or they run out of ballots.
Not confusing;
Showing up to vote and getting to vote.

"he’s refusing to comply with a court order"

For a bunch of people who want to run the country, they sure do suck at obeying the law.

Where did this frat boy get his law degree? Where does it say the state attorney general gets to decide which federal court rulings to comply with and which he can totally ignore? He reminds me of one of the football jocks in the movie Heathers.

How clever of Mr. Husted to issue his own stay while he's appealing the initial ruling. I'm sure the judiciary will be very pleased to see he's doing their important work of interpreting the law for them.

Headline should read: "Cross-eyed Mongoloid wins State-Wide Office in Ohio."

John Husted–the Orville Faubus of Ohio.

Apparently the judge has ordered Husted to appear at an emergency hearing in Columbus on September 13.

Oh the spanking. It will sting.

If I was a judge on the Court of Appeals, and some dipshit – like this guy – said he wasn't going to obey a lower court order until the Court of Appeals I was sitting on had a chance to rule on the case, I would say to myself: "What if I make an order and this aforementioned and certified dipshit says he won't follow my order either, until the Supreme Court rules on the case? Will I like that? Will I countenance such impertinence? No, I won't. Therefore, I am not going to let him do it to a lower court either. Fuckface."

Amazing he left the glory hole long enough to disobey a federal court order. He's usually very good about taking orders, but that's probably when he's just on his knees.

My, what beady little rat eyes you have, Mr. Husted.

Did you forget the "Blonde Ambition Tour"? Those suckers would take your eyes out from three feet away.
