LetOhioVote.org – Success!
While the Strickland administration can’t even properly find the vein to kill a criminal, LetOhioVote.org struck a vein to totally ruin Gov. Strickland’s patch work budget.
The Ohio Supreme Court ruled today that Gov. Ted Strickland’s plan to install up to 17,500 video slot machines at horse racetracks is subject to a potential statewide voter referendum.
Justices said in a 6-1 opinion that enabling provisions legislators included in the state budget do not fall within any of the exceptions to the right of referendum in the Ohio Constitution.
The court, acting in a lawsuit that LetOhioVote.org filed, ordered Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to accept and process summary petitions for the group’s attempt to place the question of video lottery terminals on the ballot
