Dems doing more than talking about voter suppression
Above the post update:
Well Flynn, and therefore by extension I, was wrong.
the likely remedy proposed would be to remove the Friday deadline for everyone — and that’s exactly what the plaintiffs are proposing. Gabriel Malor forwarded me a link to the brief, and the relevant language within it
For my small part in misrepresenting the actions of the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party, I apologize.
Original post below to shame the guilty (me).
They are engaging in it, and right here in Ohio to boot.

From Mike Flynn’s article:
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.
Democrats fight tooth and claw to keep illegal aliens, dead people, and Disney characters voting. American servicemen and women? “[N]o discernible rational basis” to protect their franchise. I hope you all rot you miserable hypocrites.
