Students Given Sample Ballots Only Containing Democrat Candidates
Three van loads of Hughes High students were taken last week – during school hours – to vote and given sample ballots only for Democratic candidates and then taken for ice cream, a Monday lawsuit alleges.
The suit alleges three van loads of Hughes High students arrived at the Downtown Board of Elections offices at 1 p.m. Wednesday, supervised by a school employee. School lets out at 3:15 p.m.
When they got out of the vans, the students, the suit alleges, also were accompanied by adults who appeared to be campaign workers or supporters for U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus, D-West Price Hill, the congressman being challenged this fall by Steve Chabot. When the students got out of the vans, the suit alleges they were given sample ballots containing only Democratic candidates.
It might be - if any Democratic Party officials were involved.
According to the Cinncinnati Public School, the ballots were handed out by a school principal.http://news.cinncinnati.com/article/20101019/NEWS0108/10200338
And it would be a bigger deal if there were more than a few van loads of potential votes involved.
Most importantly - it's far more offensive to try to keep people from voting than it is to try to tell voters who to vote for.
Also, there is no racial profiling element to these allegations.
