Politicians Disenfranchise Themselves

Posted By on Tue, Nov 7, 2006 at 3:24 PM

Apparently, the voting problems in Ohio are even preventing some elected officials from voting! The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that Republican Congressman Steve Chabot was refused a ballot when he couldn't produce proper ID. Never mind that the workers recognized him and knew he was who he said he was, Chabot had to go home and retrieve a bank statement and a Social Security document. "My wife told me to bring two documents just to be sure," Chabot told The Enquirer. "I guess this just shows the poll workers are really doing their job." Thanks, Uncle Tom Blackwell. -- Kevin Hoffman
