Reformer eyes top elections job in Ohio

Throughout Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s fight to make voting harder in his state this, Democratic State Senator Nina Turner was perhaps the loudest voice of opposition. Reporter Marc Kovac of Ohio Capital Blog asked Turner today whether she’ll try to knock Husted out of office when his term is up in 2014. She told him:

I could run again for the Senate, but given what Ohioans had to face in this last election, given that “S-O-S” now stands, under Husted’s leadership, as “Secretary of Suppression,” it’s very important that the citizens of the state of Ohio have someone that understands that voting should not be partisan, that everybody in the state should have the right and the access to vote, and certainly our current Secretary of State doesn’t understand that. 

Husted got smacked against yesterday in court, with a judge telling him he was flouting the law and disenfranchising voters by trying to rewrite the rules for which ballots gets counted. The full ruling is worth clicking the PDF.
