That ‘Lame’ Strickland Residency Story Has Travelled Quite a Bit

Filed under: Taxes & Government — Tom @ 2:03 pm

It has now made the round trip from Columbiana County to Columbus, and back:

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The secretary of state’s office sent a challenge of Democratic governor candidate Ted Strickland’s residency back to the Columbiana County Board of Elections on Tuesday.The challenge alleges Strickland does not live at the Lisbon address where he is registered to vote. If successful, it could keep him from voting in the Nov. 7 election.

The elections board voted 2-2 along party lines last week over whether to hold a hearing to decide the complaint and referred the matter to the secretary of state’s office.

The board failed to conduct proper investigation into Strickland’s residency before voting and therefore must hold a hearing to determine the issue, Assistant Secretary of State Monty Lobb wrote in a letter to Columbiana Board of Elections Director Lois Gall.

….. A determination against the Stricklands would prevent them from voting in the upcoming election because the deadline to change their residency passed last week.

So the residency story has two trips of about 175 miles each, or 350 miles, under its belt. That’s a lot of distance for such a “lame” story to travel.
