West Chester, Ohio: Massive Crowd for Romney-Ryan Rally

BLUE ASH, Ohio
I’ll have more photos later, but right now I just want to tell you how awesome tonight’s rally was. Rudy Giuliani’s speech was off the hook — the best takedown of the Obama administration I’ve heard this entire cycle, bar none. What Rudy said about Benghazi was particularly brutal.

We left early to beat the traffic out of the rally, stopped by the Double Tree Hotel to see some people, and Ali Akbar discovered an Associated Press reporter on Twitter trying to deliberately lowball the crowd estimate and claim there was “low energy” among Republican voters here…

…Ed Driscoll points out that the Cincinnati Enquirer, hardly a bastion of right-wing fanaticism, estimated Friday’s crowd at 30,000. Yet [AP Reporter] Steve Peoples reports 18,000?

Like I said, three words

Stacy has more to report, and more photos from West Chester, Ohio:  Scenes from Ohio ‘All-Star’ Rally

A friend of CAJ e-mailed this morning to say he is working on the ground in Ohio for the Romney team:

On the ground in Cincinnati suburbs this weekend. Went to a R-R rally last night in West Chester, OH. 30,000 people and they were FIRED up.

Romney is even better in person.

Half the people I talked to were independents who had never been to a political rally in their lives…

…All the heavy hitters were on stage, McCain, Giuliani, Rubio, Ayotte, Jindal, Kasich, on and on…

Going out to knock on some doors now.

Later……………

But things aren’t all rosy in Ohio: ‘All the cars with Romney bumper stickers have been keyed…’

…At a nearby table, political independent Greg Littel, 20, a University of Cincinnati student who favors Obama, said he was dismayed by vandalism in his liberal neighborhood.

“The political conversations have been more hostile and people have been taking that physically out on each other,” Littel said. “All the cars with Romney bumper stickers have been keyed.”…

‘Hitler’ appears on Ohio voter registration form

Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys, including Quarterback Tony Romo, were names that ACORN workers attempted to register to vote during the 2008 presidential election.

The ensuing outrage sparked a voter registration fraud scandal that helped lead to the activist group’s demise, and put new focus on the integrity of third-party voter registration efforts during Presidential elections.

Now, four years later, the name: John Adolf Hitler, was one of those turned in on a voter registration form collected by another group in Cincinnati, according to the Hamilton County Board of Elections.

“It’s certainly not a joke. In Ohio, that kind of activity is a felony,” says Alex Triantafilou, an Elections Board member who also serves as the Chairman of the county’s Republican party.

“Any person who would engage in that kind of conduct with something as serious to our democracy as voting, is highly irresponsible and potentially criminal…We have someone doctoring registrations, and the next step would be a serious move toward fraudulent voting. We are worried about it.”

The listing, “Adolf Hitler, John…666 Heltz…la,” puts his supposed residence in Los Angeles.

It was part of a batch of roughly 200 voter registrations that election officials say were flagged as possibly fraudulent, forged, or duplicated by the group that collected them, FieldWorks, a private Washington, D.C. based firm.

FieldWorks, says it works largely with Democratic candidates, causes and progressive organizations collecting signatures for voter registration or ballot initiatives across the country.

“We have a zero tolerance for fraud,” FieldWorks co-owner Chris Galloway told Fox News, defending his firm…

…Gathering signatures was too difficult, said one ACORN worker in Seattle, so he went home and filled out the forms while he “smoked marijuana.”…
