The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives is also a Representative from Ohio’s 8th District. Rep. John Boehner is just as incensed as any true American should be about the obvious and rampant fraud in Ohio fostered… or at least being ignored… by the Democrat Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner.
Boehner has been at the forefront in spotlighting this fraud and has been insistent that something be done about it. His office has issued this latest statement in pursuit of free, fair and legal elections.
Boehner Statement on the Justice Department’s Refusal to Enforce Federal Voting Laws, Require Ohio Secretary of State Brunner to Preserve Integrity of Ohio’s Vote on Tuesday
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) today issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Justice declined to intervene in Ohio voter registration controversy and refused to require Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to preserve the integrity of Tuesday’s election:
“I’m disappointed by the Justice Department’s refusal to stop Secretary Brunner’s calculated effort to undermine the integrity of Ohio’s election. Of the 660,000 new voter registrations in Ohio, more than 200,000 have been found questionable. Yet Secretary Brunner has refused to provide county elections officials with access to a computerized database with the most up-to-date voter registration information so that local officials can verify that voters are, in fact, who they claim to be.
“The tactics she’s employed come right from the ACORN playbook, a group with which she is intimately linked. ACORN, which my office has identified as the recipient of at least $30 million in taxpayer funds, has been at the forefront again of allegations of voter registration and potential ballot fraud across Ohio and the nation. Between ACORN’s activities and Brunner’s refusal to comply with the Help America Vote Act, there is little wonder that Ohioans believe their votes will be devalued come Tuesday.”
Boehner represents Ohio’s 8th District, which includes all of Darke, Miami and Preble counties, most of Butler and Mercer counties, and the northeastern corner of Montgomery County. He was first elected to Congress in 1990.
