Ohio House 16th: Brady (D) Restored to Ballot

I learned at last night's Strickland rally at the Plain Dealer Pavillion in Cleveland that the Court of Appeals ordered Jennifer Brady (D-Westlake) restored to the ballot yesterday at 3:00 pm. The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections had split 2-2 along party lines on whether to remove her name because of a technical error in the written notice delivered to the Board regarding her selection as a replacement candidate in August. A deputy to Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R-Cincinnati) resolved the tie against Brady. Brady's attorneys took that decision to court, arguing that the written notice constituted substantial compliance with the governing statute, and that the protest was orchestrated by Brady's opponent, Ed Herman (R-Rocky River).

Today's Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R-Cincinnati) has already filed an appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.

The 8th District Court of Appeals has embarrassed Cuyahoga County. The opinion (you should read it) is truly laughable.

Here's a pretty good article on the case:

All this decision does is put her on the ballot, because there isn't time to argue the case in court. A judge did not rule in her favor, appeals made a decision to let her on the ballot and after the election they will sort it out. It's all moot anyway because Brady is gonna lose. The only time you have seen or heard about Brady was when her campaign team has screwed something up. If thats how dems expect to win than God save us!
