Call in The Feds

Green Party Presidential Candidate Seeks Federal Court Jurisdiction in New Ohio Recount Case

Ohio — Attorneys for Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb asked a federal court today to take jurisdiction of, and ultimately dissolve, a temporary restraining order issued by a Delaware County, Ohio judge attempting to prevent Cobb from seeking a recount of the presidential ballots cast in that county.

Cobb and Libertarian Michael Badnarik, who are jointly filing the recount demand, are named as defendants, along with their attorneys, in the restraining order sought by the Delaware County prosecuting attorney.

The Delaware County judge issued the temporary restraining order without contacting or seeking any input from the candidates or their attorneys.

"It makes you wonder if Delaware County has something to hide. Why else would they try to prevent a recount and issue an injunction without giving the candidates any notice to participate?"— Blair Bobier

To pin down a beginning point for the instant Overview and before there was a beginning of the State of Ohio, recall the Book of Genesis, Chapter 1, Verse 2, wherein the author states: "And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep." Prior to the year 1802, the situation within the lands which would ultimately become the State of Ohio wasn't nearly as dismal as so described by the Genesis author. However, prior to 1802, Ohio was non-existent, with the boundaries of present day Ohio being included in that huge tract of land known as the Northwest Territory, and governed, such as it could be governed, by the Congressional Ordinance of 1787.
