Lou Dobbs, along with Glenn Beck, are probably the only two CNN hosts who are not completely in the tank for Barack Obama. So it is interesting to see this report by Dobbs about early voting in Ohio which allows people to register to vote and cast an absentee ballot at the same time. This opens up a great opportunity for election fraud as this report demonstrates. A check on Google News shows absolutely no MSM coverage, other than this story by Dobbs, on the topic of potential vote fraud in Ohio due to the relaxed rules instituted by the highly partisan Democrat Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, who changed the voting rules by directive (emphasis mine):

Ohio Court Rules for McCain-Palin on Absentee Ballots
Updated 5:35 p.m.
By Mary Pat Flaherty
The Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that disputed absentee ballot applications mailed to state voters by the McCain-Palin campaign should be accepted by local elections officials and directed State Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to reverse her position that boards reject them.
The decision was one of several issued this week by state and federal courts over procedures that affect Ohio's early voting process.
The case was brought by two Republican voters against Brunner, a Democrat, and had become the focus of partisan wrangling in the heavily contested state.
The applications at issue in Thursday's case contain a checkbox that appears on the forms -- in addition to a signature line -- for voters to state that they are qualified to vote and request an absentee ballot. The McCain camp mailed 1 million of the forms in Ohio.
In September, Brunner advised county elections boards to reject the forms if the box was not checked, even if the application had been signed, saying that without a checkmark a voter's intent was unclear. More than 3,500 ballots already had been rejected for that reason by boards, the court determined.
The court rejected Brunner's interpretation and also said that an unchecked box did not provide evidence of voter fraud. Rejecting ballots solely over the lack of a checkmark, the court wrote, served "no vital purpose or public interest."

Greta just broke the news that a judge has ruled against Bruner for breaking Federal law. No link yet.

i didnt say that voter fraud was a right, i was only responding to the sentiment that its disgusting to pull homeless people of the street to vote. voting itself is right and being homeless doesnt exclude you. thats it. voter fraud freaks me out.
