Vote Challenge Aftermath

From Gongwer News Service:

Attorney General Jim Petro is asking the Ohio Supreme Court to sanction four lawyers who filed "a meritless" challenge to the Ohio vote for President George Bush, and for their behavior during the course of the litigation.

Mr. Petro filed the motion (case no. 04-2088) on behalf of Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell and Ohio's 20 presidential electors. The filing targets attorneys Clifford Arnebeck, Robert Fitrakis, Susan Truitt, and Peter Peckarsky. They represented former Columbus School Board member Bill Moss and 36 other voters who alleged fraud in the vote for President Bush and Chief Justice Thomas Moyer. Both election contests were subsequently withdrawn.

In related news... the polling firms whose exit polls formed the genesis of some of the democratic hysteria over voting "fraud" and "disenfranchisement" have admitted to a "number of problems" that may have caused the polling results to skew toward John Kerry in disproportionate numbers to the actual vote. Now that's a news flash.
