DAYTON —

The two Democrats on the Montgomery County Board of Elections were suspended by Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted on Friday after they refused to back down in a standoff over extending in-person early voting hours for the upcoming election.

Dennis Lieberman and Tom Ritchie Sr. must appear at a hearing at 9 a.m. Monday in Columbus to decide whether they will be removed from office.

“You leave me no choice but to begin the process necessary to remove you as members of the Montgomery County Board of Elections,” Husted’s letter to the pair said.

Ohioans start voting Oct. 2 and the debate over hours for in-person absentee voting (commonly called early voting) has been gaining steam for weeks in county boards of election across the state, all of which are made up of two Democrats and two Republicans.

Dennis Lieberman is a well known defense lawyer, former chairman of Montgomery County Democratic Party and is the husband of County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman.

Dennis is a good man.... Husted is also from the Dayton area....He appears to be trying to surpass the crimes and misdemeanors of his mentor and former SOS Ken Blackwell.

1. Wasn't there some sort of anamolous weather incident in 2004 which caused a bunch of

Republican votes to be counted late in Ohio? You know, the type that nearby precincts didn't have or report as being strange?

2. I recall many shenanigans back then

many democratic precincts in the Columbus area only had two voting machines during a Presidential election. Some waited until midnight to vote...cold, raining....

4. Dennis and Tom did a fantastic segment on Rachel Maddows!

If there is a video clip ...please post. I'm at work and cannot search just yet. The segment was excellent ...moving and motivating.

I'm so proud of Dennis ....a fine leader!
