Another Lawsuit against the Democrats in Ohio

You know, this is rapidly getting old. We get that you guys are trying to match ACORN-level voter fraud, guys. You’re worthy of being supported by Barack Obama already. From the Cincinnati Enquirer:

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 complaint was made by Thomas Brinkman Jr., a Republican candidate for Hamilton County auditor, and the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending & Taxes against Cincinnati Public Schools.

“They plan to bring four more high schools (to vote) this week,” Christopher Finney, COAST attorney, said Monday after filing the suit.

It seeks a temporary restraining order to prevent school officials from participating or helping students participate in partisan politics during school hours or with school property or employees involved.

You know, I love the whole “taken for ice cream” element to this. I wonder if Ben and Jerry’s counts as an illegal campaign contribution, and if so, does lower-end ice cream count as well? Hey, if letting a candidate mention his website on Fox News is, then I guess anything is possible.

And by the way, this probably won’t help Ted Strickland, who Time has pretty much counted out of the race.
