Ohio Files Brief in U.S. Supreme Court, Defending State Law that Makes it Illegal to Make a False Statement in a Campaign

On November 27, Ohio filed this brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in Susan B. Anthony List v Driehaus, 13-193. The issue is Ohio’s law that makes it illegal for anyone to make a false statement in a campaign ad, whether about candidates or about ballot measures. The state argues that the U.S. Supreme Court should not take this case. The state argues that the Susan B. Anthony List (which had been sued by a congressional candidate for allegedly saying the candidate favored using taxpayer money to pay for abortions) was never threatened with prosecution, and therefore this is not a proper lawsuit for determining whether the Ohio law violates the First Amendment.

    Basically nonstop slander and libel since the N.Y. Times case in 1964 by SCOTUS MORONS.

    Thus – my opponent is a traitor, a terrorist, a serial killer, a home invader, and even beats up and kills baby cats and dogs

    – quite OK for the SCOTUS MORONS ??? Stay tuned.
