Breaking: Reports of Possible Voter Suppression at Cincinnati Mother of Christ Church

I’ve received reports that behavior looking suspiciously like voter suppression is happening at precinct 24E in Cincinnati at Mother of Christ Church. I’ve heard from two sources, one of whom wishes to remain anonymous. Legally, nothing is considered voter suppression unless it is proven that there was the intention to suppress votes. Proving intention is a tricky thing. However, the outcome, if these reports are accurate, is that people who wanted to vote in this election may be discouraged from voting or not have their votes counted unless the election is close enough to warrant counting provisional ballots.

According to these reports, voters who come to Mother of Christ Church erroneously – and there are multiple polling locations on the same street so it’s easy to get confused – are being encouraged to fill out provisional ballots rather than being told where their correct precinct is.

In addition, my sources have multiple reports of people who are registered at that precinct being forced to fill out provisional ballots even if they’re on the books at the location and have correct ID on them. The deputy judge, Dan Unger (in the photo bellow), reportedly came outside and told all the voter protection and election protection people to stop talking to voters. I was told that Unger also said they are not making people fill out provisional ballots, which is contradicted by the reports my sources are getting.

Daniel Rajaiah of Clifton Ohio posted the following photo on his Facebook page this morning.

“This is the election official Dan Unger who is forcing many African Americans to vote provisionally at my precinct. I asked him why and he just kicked me out of the church. Elections lawyers are on their way!”

Voter intimidation concerns hit Wyoming

Source: Star-Tribune

Two brothers who own a chain of restaurants in Wyoming warned of canceled health insurance for managers, reduced hours for full-time employees and massive layoffs if President Barack Obama is re-elected and the Affordable Care Act remains intact.

Tim and Rob Woodward say they’re not the only proprietors to do so.

The Woodwards own Bagelmakers and Subway restaurants in Wyoming and Colorado. Tim lives in Laramie and Rob in Loveland, Colo. They presented a possible bleak future for their 41-restaurant chain and 341 employees in an op-ed piece published in the Laramie Boomerang, Oct. 24. Citing decreased earnings and minimal job growth if the ACA stands, the Woodwards vowed to terminate a majority of their employees by 2014, predicted more than $600,000 in penalties per year and expected to liquidate two-thirds of their restaurants because of additional costs if Obama wins Tuesday’s election.

The Woodwards support Republican candidate Mitt Romney and want the ACA repealed.
