DeWine is doing the right thing. End of story.

And I have worked and fought for clean elections, democrats, and progressive policies in Ohio for years.

Mike is listening to real experts as per C-19 and keeping crowds down in polling places is the right thing to do.

The Dire Wolf is here and it is real.

6. Nothing would make me happier than to be wrong about all of this.

Corona Math

330,000,000 (US Population) x .40 (40 to 70% infection rate) x .03 (lethality rate W.H.O.'s # is 3.4%) = 3,960,000 dead

Today even Trump admitted this "thing" will go on until @ least August.

Trust me I am no fan of DeWine but he is listening to the experts as per C-19. The OH Dept. of health has
extrapolated the #s out to 100,000 cases in OH right now.

DeWine is playing political games and breaking the law by ignoring a judge's direct order. What do you NOT GET about that? So happy to see the other states involved in primary elections tomorrow are not disavowing the voters in their states. Joe Biden can win big tomorrow w/o Ohio voters.

I don't and I never will.

Republicans are morally bankrupt.

This is not about health and safety.

They don't care about such values.

Yes it is. BTW on elections days I have gotten up @ 4:30 to 5:00 and worked sometimes
until past 9:00 fighting for the right of every legal voter who showed up @ the precinct I
was working @ to vote and their vote be counted too. I have faced down armed police
and corrupt republican poll workers in trying to get that done.

BTW in his court filing DeWine is also seeking relief so everybody who wants to vote
in the primary can do so but just not @ the polls tomorrow and @ a later date.

When the dead from C-19 are piled up like cord wood and the hospitals are overwhelmed

This was not about trying to rig the elections but very legit public health reasons.

21. Diktat

Republicans are relentless and have no respect for law.
DeWeasel looks mild-mannered, but has always been a highly partisan below the belt fighter (Clinton impeachment, dirty senate campaign against Sherrod Brown, etc). He had a case brought before a Franklin County (Columbus) court, using employees of Sec of State LaRose as plaintiffs late to-day. The judge followed the law, and rejected DeWeasel's move. Late in the evening, he has a state health officer, Amy Acton, to close the polls. That is really pulling one out of his ass. Well, Ohio has been a southern state for some time. This would be a precedent for other Republicans/Fascists in the future, and that would include Orange "Democratic hoax" Caligula, or President for Life Trumple-thin-skin.

25. I'm from OH and I know that DeWine is a snake. I even have real doubts about his election in '18.

He ran scurrilous ads about John Glenn that were way over the top some years
ago.

Joe B. is gonna be the nominee. End of story. But in this case he is trying to do the right thing.
OH (along w/America) is just days away from a hell storm of death and sickness from C-19.

He and Georgia governor are previewing the idea of no elections going forward. Mark my words.

29. It was done @ the 11th hour because that was when the DeWine called the state of emergency in OH ...

... after being briefed by experts. The elections very soon might be the least of our concerns.

Just like many democratic governors did in their states too recently. DeWine was really scared @ his presser
yesterday. You could see the fear on his face.

And the price we may pay if Trump is reelected. Sanders should concede.

31. Couple that with a vote-by-mail option and I would tend to agree

By delaying the scheduled vote it's not improbable that future in-person voting might be even more risky. There could be no better time than the present to move to vote-by-mail. The more universal the better. Would also be more equitable so that long lines at certain poll locations and transportation / parking issues no longer penalize those who choose to do their civic duty.

36. Seems like you haven't been paying attention to the rapidly evolving guidance

Not that long ago politicians restricting gatherings to 500, then 250, then 100, then 50, were being applauded here as doing the right thing. DeWine was being applauded for acknowledging that the situation was far far worse than Trump and his clown show was letting on. Now the guidance ranges from ten people to simply shut it down (Bay Area -- not exactly Republican stronghold). But now its a bad thing to listen to the experts?

More people will be disenfranchised if the election is held tomorrow than if it is delayed, since I would tackle my elderly aunt before I let her go out to vote. Or my immune compromised wife. Or my 70+ brother with a history of respiratory illness.

Sometimes this place can be so disappointing.

... close all bars, restaurants, and now gyms. Believe it or not by DeWine is listening to the
experts and is trying to do the right thing. The #s are just staggering.

I watched his presser and he was scared witless.

38. I detest DeWine 99 percent of the time

But, in this case, he did the right thing.

Most of our poll workers are older retired folks. How would you like to sit there for 12 hours while everyone comes filing past you, touching pens, being too close.

Plus, there are still way too many people in Ohio who aren't taking this seriously. We have 50 cases, probably more by now, it goes up every day.

We are being informed that we'll still be able to vote through the first of June. So it's not like the election is being cancelled altogether, just moved ahead.

I have never voted for a Republican in my entire life .... I was for Warren until she dropped out and now I'm for Biden. I just don't see anything nefarious going on here.
