Ohio Secretary of State Called On To Resign

HeadlineOct 01, 2004

In elections news, two state senators from the battleground state of Ohio have called for the resignation of Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. State Senator Teresa Fedor accused the Republican official of attempting to cook the vote. Up until Wednesday Blackwell had threatened not to accept voter registration forms that were not printed on paper with 80-pound card stock. The senators also accused Blackwell of misinforming ex-felons of their voting rights and of refusing to clarify how many voters have been purged from Ohio’s voter registration rolls. Blackwell served as an electoral expert for Bush and Cheney during the 2000 recount in Florida.
