…Now what are you going to do about it?
We have all heard Stalin’s (attributed-perhaps falsely) quote, “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes”. Whether he said this or not, the essential meaning is, “As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it?” Unfortunately, this is an apt introduction to the candidacy for Ohio Attorney General, namely, Steve Christopher of Findlay Ohio’s TEA Party.
Last evening, my husband received unofficial word that of the over 2,700 signatures that he turned in on his petitions to get him on the ballot for Ohio Attorney General, over 2,000 of them were deemed “invalid” by Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner. I think you would agree that this is highly unprecedented.
At this time, we are optimistically waiting to review and audit the signatures. We have not received any official word regarding the validity of the signatures. We will be conducting an internal audit and verification to vet the signatures we did obtain. At the time that we vet the signatures and obtain official word on why the signatures were rejected, we will make a determination and advise everyone as to the direction we will take.
As you can see, there are some very compelling differences between Steve’s positions and Mike DeWine’s voting record.
