RFK Jr. seeking litigation in Ohio election fraud

In an interview in PR Week yesterday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced that he is seeking litigation, to be formerly announced and explained soon, in the case of the Ohio election fraud.

PRWeek: Is there a next step?
Kennedy: I’ve been meeting with attorneys… to devise a litigation strategy. And I would say that very soon we’ll be announcing lawsuits against some of the individuals and companies involved.

PRWeek: Who exactly would that litigation be targeting?
Kennedy: I wouldn’t say, right now.

PRWeek: The election is over. Is it too late now?
Kennedy: There’s another election soon. And as the Times [just] reported, the same people are up to the same shenanigans.

The lead editorial in the New York Times from June 7 (to which RFK refers) covers Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell's renewed attempts to block voter registration efforts this election season... the difference between this year and 2004, when he reinforced an ancient rule requiring all registrations to be on 80-lb. paper? This time Blackwell himself is running for governor of the state. How is it that a man running for office can still be in charge of overseeing fair elections, especially when it's someone as egregiously nefarious as Kenneth Blackwell? (Thanks to Ray Beckerman for the link.)
