In Dayton, time to return 2 Dems to Elections Board

Question for the legal minds, which I'm not:

In the Repubicans' bizarre attempts to restrict voting hours while being less than candid about their motives, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted  fired two Montgomery County (Dayton) Democrats on the Board of Elections because they  decided to  go ahead with  early week- end voting - a practice followed in the 2008 presidential election that went smoothly.  If it wasn't broken, why did he try to fix it?

But now that a federal judge has ruled that Republican Husted's scheme was unconstitutional (except  not in the mind of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who is appealing it)  shouldn't Husted take the hint and restore Dennis Lieberman and Tom Ritchie Sr. to their board positions?

With the current state of the GOP, you are always missing something in the narrative.
