US' 2nd Biggest Racist Vote Purger, Jon Husted, Runs With GOP Candidate Mike DeWine

In the Ohio governor race,
Democrat Cordray is a former Ohio attorney general who is endorsed
by President Obama, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, AG Eric Holder. As head of the national Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Cordray
returned billions from banks and payday lenders to citizens. Betty Sutton running for lt. governor was like Dennis Kucinich gerrymandering out of her congressional seat by Ohio Republicans. Nationally and in Ohio, Republicans are less than 25% of registered voters. Democrats have most registered voters. Independents have second most.*

Ohio's Husted and DeWine, 2nd only to Georgia's Brian Kemp in Vote Purging

In Ohio governor race, yes to Cordray and Sutton, no to DeWine & Husted

1a DeWine voted for the Iraq war, was a liaison for G W Bush on Capitol Hill. He voted more than once to keep the war going, and to have no timetable for returning the troops home.
1b DeWine opposed setting a timetable for bringing troops home from Iraq.
2 Voted yes on limiting death penalty appeals.
Has worked to make Ohio the only northern execution state. Only seven of fifty states murdered prisoners this year. Nevertheless
Trump chose to nominate 2 execution candidates to the Supreme Court, the only court among alleged democracies whose members serve for life.
While over 80% of the world's countries and 43 states this year have not murdered prisoners, the Republican party is the party of
unconstitutional denial of life through execution.
3 DeWine worked with his running mate Jon Husted criminally to remove over 1 million nonRepublicans from Ohio's voting rolls in time to give a stolen victory to Trump. DeWine and Husted are the second most vote purging team in the US.
DeWine and Husted have arranged that anyone who misses two elections in Ohio is removed from the rolls.
4 DeWine received millions from drug, insurance and fracking cos.
and sued to exempt insurance companies for paying for preexisitng conditions. He worked to prohibit Ohio cities from suing frackers who caused over 900 earthquakes in Ohio and poisoned the watershed.
5a DeWine voted yes on restricting class-action lawsuits.
5b DeWine blocked overtime for workers.
5c Like Trump, DeWine favors tax cuts for the wealthy only.
6 He voted no on repealing tax subsidy for companies which move US jobs offshore.
7 DeWine and Husted oppose decriminalization of marijuana which releases nonviolent pot users from jail, generates tax revenue, reunites families, saves police time for serious crimes. Old hackable Diebold machines in some Ohio counties were involved in turning the yes vote of Ohioans on decriminalization to a no vote. Republican Mitt Romney's son bought voting machines in the Cincinnati area.
8. The DeWine Husted campaign is claiming that Cordray's support for decriminalization is a campaign to release violent criminals onto the streets.
9.DeWine voted yes on constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.
10 DeWine voted no on including oil & gas smokestacks in mercury regulations. (Sep 2005)
11 DeWine while in the Senate flunked League Of Conservation Voters ratings with only 16%
12 He voted for a trade embargo against Cuba.
13 He voted no on favoring 1997 McCain-Feingold overhaul of campaign finance. (Oct 1997)
14 He voted yes to extend the Patriot Act written by Brett Kavanaugh while in G W Bush's counsel office.
15 He was rated 25% by CURE, indicating he opposed programs to rehabilitate prisoners.
16a Ohio is one of the Republican party's 7 most racist gerrymanderednstates along with Texas, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Florida. In 2016 and this year, North Dakota, Nevada, Indiana and other states have had criminal vote purging encouraged by the racist Jeff Sessions.
16b In Ohio, early voting ballot secrecy is compromised. Husted has designed that ballot secrecy is violated. On the outside of the envelope the voter is asked to check his or her political party. The process is defined as early voting absentee ballot, and
one must put all ones personal information on the envelope
and in an application, adding 20 minutes to the time for voting, a much longer process than other early voting states.
16c ESS bought old Ohio headquartered Diebold machines and sold to Republicans
the remote control to be able to change vote totals offsite. ESS controls voting in 18 states.
17 DeWine was rated 27% by the NEA, indicating anti-public education votes:
18. He was rated 0% by SANE because of his pro nuclear policies
19. DeWine's corruption knew no bounds when he was involved in giving 189 million of taspayer $ to a private school called ECOT. Meanwhile in September's and October's 90 degree days in Ohio,
public schools in Cleveland, Cincinnati and other cities had no money for air conditioning and had to close their schools. ECOT went bankrupt (which of their execs left with the $).
20. Because of campaign criticism, Mike DeWine finally in late July of this year changed his position to support Medicaid expansion.

Ohio Republicans have stolen elections since Rutherford Hayes in 1876, the candidate with fewer votes. Robert F Kennedy Jr., Rep. John Conyers, and Free Press authors
have all written articles or books about the Ohio Republican party theft of John Kerry's election in 2004. GOP fraud in Ohio has been constant for 142 years.
