UPDATE: Good news! A war of words has erupted in Columbus between Republican Secretary of State John Husted, Ohio’s highest ranking election official, and Conservatives in the Statehouse over House Bill 159.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, during a speech to the League of Women Voters during Ohio’s annual Statehouse Day, Husted said, "I believe that if you have a government-issued check, a utility bill in your name with your address on it, that no one made that up. They didn't call AEP and establish utilities in their name to commit voter fraud."
Still, one comment from one official does equal a victory. Our work is far from over and Conservatives in the House are not going to quit. In the Cincinnati Enquirer this week Representative John Adams, a member of the GOP House Leadership and 5th highest ranking member in the House, recommitted his intention to continue trampling the constitution with HB159 and blasted Secretary of State Husted for not playing along.
The bill is currently in the State Government Committee in the Senate and we must ensure that it never makes it to the floor or the Governor’s desk! Republican in-fighting is a good sign but we can’t let up the pressure.
We are so close to our signature goal and with your help we can get it over the top! Please share this petition on Facebook, post it to your twitter account, and email it to your closest friends, family, and co-workers.
As always, thanks for all you do to fight for Ohio!

P.S. It’s so important that we keep up the pressure on lawmakers about this bill. Please share the petition one more time on Facebook or post it on Twitter. If everyone recruits only 1 more person to get involved, we will blow past our signature goal! Voting is a fundamental right; don’t let them take it away for the most vulnerable.
