Tea Party Groups ‘Drive’ To Strike Voters Off Rolls In Ohio
By Nancy Hennen
A list 2,100 college students, homeless people, and trailer-park residents received letters threatening to strike them from the voter rolls in Ohio.
The tea-party groups launched the challenges as part of what they call a “citizen’s movement” against voter fraud:
“We’re all about election integrity — making sure everyone who votes is registered and qualified voters.” Said Mary Siegel, one of the leaders of the Ohio effort.
This, despite very little evidence evidence, according to Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler:
…the Republican secretary of state said in an interview that he knew of no evidence that more than a handful of illegal votes had been cast in Ohio in the past few presidential elections.
