Ohio Early Voting Ruling Appealed By John Husted, Deepening Confusion Over Election Laws If only the GOP could reinstate the Polls Tax, so that poor and disadvantaged voters cannot vote. That would make them happy. Their excuse for Voter ID is "illegal voting" even though there is little or no evidence. Tell me what the Repub excuse is for limiting early voting, particularly in pro Obama districts. This is one of the reasons the GOP has left a bad taste in my mouth for years. Everyone knows who they govern for. That is the rich and affluent. To Hell with the Poor and Disenfrachised. I have tried to empathise with the GOP causes, and when I get close to supporting them, they pull something like this. Or they come up with the "47%" remark, the "legitimate rape remark", or they flip positions like their current Pres candidate. The GOP has finally achieved their long sort after goal. They have nominate a candidate for President that is "Ultra Rich."
