Ohio election fraud: Hocking County edition

Things have been heating up in Hocking County (about an hour south of Columbus) over the last week or so. Sherole Eaton, the county's deputy director of elections, was terminated, directly related to the official statements she made about election fraud after November 2. Rallies were held, lawsuits were filed, and a temporary restraining order was issued. This morning, people like Alliance for Democracy and the Progressive Ohio Backbone Campaign are meeting with the Board of Elections at 11am. Check out Ray Beckerman's Ohio Election Fraud blog for more information. Ray is a tireless NYC lawyer who has refused to give up on fighting the election fraud, and is a wealth of information and action.

On a personal note, it's wild for me to be watching this happen in Logan, Ohio -- my grandparents and many other family members live there, and I spent many a childhood vacation in this sleepy little town nestled in the Hocking Hills. I don't think they've ever received this kind of attention; too bad it's for something like firing a whistleblower on the election fraud. Cheers to those that aren't letting it happen!
