Heading it off at the pass - Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting

http://nation.foxnews.com/military-v...ilitary-voting

Quote:
President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state's law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is "arbitrary" with "no discernible rational basis."

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as "arbitrary" and having "no discernible rational basis," I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women's time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

The National Defense Committee reports:

[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.

I think its unconscionable that we as a nation wouldn't make it as easy as possible for members of the military to vote. They arguably have more right to vote than the rest of us, since it is their service and sacrifice that ensures we have the right to vote in the first place.

If anyone proposes legislation to combat voter fraud, Democrats will loudly scream that the proposal could "disenfranchise" some voter, somewhere. We must ensure, they argue, that voting is easy and accessible to every single voter. Every voter, that is, except the men and women of our military.

Make no mistake, the Democrat lawsuit is intended to disenfranchise some unknown number of military voters. The judge should reject it with prejudice.

Interesting read, isn't it?

Now look directly at the complaint;

http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/electionlaw...dcomplaint.pdf

Quote:
7. For these reasons and those specifically alleged herein, Plaintiffs seek a declaratory
judgment, preliminary injunction, and permanent injunction prohibiting Defendants
from implementing or enforcing the HB 224 and SB 295 changes to Ohio Rev. Code
3509.03, thereby restoring in-person absentee voting on the three days
immediately preceding Election Day for all Ohio voters
.

The suit does not block any Service people or their family from voting early rather it blocks the State from enacting a schedule that would prohibit "ordinary" citizens from voting the last three days leading up to the Presidential Election.

At least that is how I read it.
