The "Silly" Season Begins

From the Columbus Dispatch:

"This is the season of merriment, not the silly season," Ohio Republican Party Chairman Robert T. Bennett said yesterday after the expected challenge to the Ohio election results for President was filed.The filing asks the Supreme Court of Ohio to overturn the election of both President Bush and Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer on the ground that election fraud kept Kerry from winning the state and Democrat C. Ellen Connally from being elected to the state’s high court.

Critics of the election results have based their allegations on mostly respected exit polls in Ohio and other battleground states that showed Kerry beating Bush — and that other Election Day problems were part of a "pattern of vote fraud and discrimination."

The petition was filed by attorneys for former Columbus Board of Education member Bill Moss and 39 other central Ohio residents. Here are the particulars:

Case no.: 04-2055
Caption: Moss et al. v. Bush et al.
Date Filed: December 13, 2004
Petitioner's attorneys: Clifford Arnebeck, Robert Fitrakis, Susan Truitt, and Peter Peckarsky (pro hac vice motion pending)
Respondent's attorneys: N/A
Documents filed: 1) petition to contest election in accordance with Ohio Revised Code 3515.08; 2) Election contest bond of $20,000; 3) motion for temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, and other relief; and 4) the aforementioned pro hac vice motion

That's it for now.
