Ohio Voters

If you haven't voted in recent elections, your registration may have been erased. Those Ohio Republicans are doing all they can to remove Democrats and minority voters from the voting lists.


....All states cleanse their voter rolls of the deceased and people who have moved. But few do so based on how often a person casts a ballot. In fact, one of the claims in the lawsuit is that the practice of doing so violates federal law:
             Keary McCarthy, president of Innovation Ohio, says Husted has taken purging the voter rolls  a step too far....

...a Reuters survey shows that it seems to be giving a boost to Republicans in the state's largest metropolitan areas. In Ohio’s three largest counties that include the cities of Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus, roughly twice as many voters have been removed from the rolls in Democratic-leaning neighborhoods as in Republican neighborhoods. Just another effort to shave a percentage point or two off Democratic turnout...

The Ohio Republicans are cheating again.

Ohio is still hurting....

You can be certain, that if Gov. Kasich and his appointees are in charge, Ohio citizens are getting hurt.

The Dispatch has a story showing how the Kasich administration mismanaged federal foreclosure money. Despite warnings from various officials, the Republican Kasich administration went ahead with their opinion of how money should be spent. As a result, according to the Dispatch---

'....likely cost the state tens of millions of dollars in federal assistance for a state that continues to have one of the worst foreclosure rates in the nation....'

And if that wasn't enough on Kasich's failure to help Ohioans, Plunderbund notes: 

...Kasich Extends Ohio’s Sub-Par Job Growth To 41 Straight Months
The sad news for Ohio following the new April data and the revisions to prior 2016 months, Mr. Zeller said today, is that Ohio has gained only 2,400 jobs during the first four months of 2016.

“Ohio’s job growth rate between April 2015 and April 2016 fell to an anemic 1.24%, while the USA national job growth rate for April 2016 was also a slowing 1.88%,” Zeller note. April 2016 marks the 41st consecutive month when Job growth under current Gov. John Kasich was below the USA national average.....

....Mr. Zeller said the “horrible April 2016 Ohio job figures wiped out prior increases, and once again moved Ohio to a position where it has 34,100 fewer jobs today than it had in June 2007, the Ohio peak employment month prior to the ‘Great Recession.'”

Kasich's 'miracle' never was a miracle-----it was a nightmare.

Donald Trump's latest ad supposedly shows migrants running over the U.S. border. But......

PolitiFact found this:

...PolitiFact was able to trace the footage back to the Italian television network RepubblicaTV. On May 3, 2014, the network posted footage of Moroccans crossing the border into Melilla, one of two enclaves on the Moroccan coast that are held by Spain. Migrants who cross the border there are essentially entering territory held by a European Union nation, even though they are still on the African continent. (It can also be seen posted by a YouTube user here.)

The RepubblicaTV video is time-stamped May 1, 2014. According to the description posted by the network (and using Google Translate) the video was released by the Interior Ministry in Madrid, showing an "onslaught of hundreds of migrants to the wall that separates the Spanish enclave of Melilla from Morocco. About 800 tried to cross the border on May 1st. Those who failed to escape the control of the Civil Guard were hanging on the barriers for six hours before being rejected."

Incredible!  If you can't find an honest piece of evidence to support your lies about immigrants, borrow some video from somewhere else in the world. This is absolutely disgusting.
