Husted: The federal courts are subversive
Like Republican Senate candidate Josh Mandel, who with straight face referred to Sen. Sherrod Brown as "un-American", Husted spread the subversive field to include the several courts that turned down his appeals of an early-voting case filed against him by the Obama Administration. ThinkProgress reports that Husted appeared at an election law symposium at the University of Toledo to denounce the courts (which included the U.S. Supreme Court) as 'un-American". He figured the courts had no business imposing its ideas on Ohio's ability to run its own elections. Take that Antonin Scalia!
The Toledo Blade, which first reported the event, noted that Husted's opinion was "not shared by many who sttended the syposium."
That is a growing truth about many of Husted's opinions these days. But embarrassing though it may be to reasonable Ohioans, we're stuck with him at least until 2014.
