I’ve volunteered to work in Ohio on a ballot initiative. We’re trying to overturn a piece of legislation that pretty much cripples public employee unions. It’s right out of the Republican play book. You see it across the country. And, as expected, Governor Kasich and the boys have also enacted legislation making it harder for young people, minorities and the poor in general to vote.
Republicans are smart enough to know that even with Wall Street backing and a supine Supreme Court there is still a chance that they might loose a half-way fair election, so they are making damned sure that we don’t see any more of those.
