Ken Blackwell: What is Senate Bill 71 and what impact would it have on Ohio elections?
Ohio used to be one of the worst states at maintaining its voter rolls. In fact, three Ohio counties even had more people registered to vote than the total voting age population living in these counties. The U.S. Supreme Court even found voter ID to be constitutional because of bad voter rolls like seen in Ohio. This all changed when then Ohio Secretary of State John Husted, now our lieutenant governor, came into office.

Media Availability: Enough of the Left’s ‘Threats to Democracy’ Rhetoric
“Most often when someone, or a group, consistently and incessantly refers to others with certain disparaging, demeaning, and destructive accusations, it is because they are projecting their own behavior upon others,” observes ACRU Executive Director Allen West in his latest Townhall OPED. “This is the case with the repeated "threats to democracy" narrative that the progressive socialist left has been firing against anyone opposing their totalitarianism.”
Press Release: The Disturbing Religion of the Left
“There is a reason why the very first freedom for Americans in our individual Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments, is the freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof. The founding fathers were very aware of what drove the first Pilgrims to the shores of America . . . and it ain't the insidious 1619 Project assertion.” ACRU Executive Director Allen West continues, “The left has a very disturbing religion, and to defy them, regardless of your faith, results in persecution and potential prosecution.”

Department of Homeland Security.
