A little break for Dems in Ohio
Ohio Democrats may have gotten a little boost from an Ohio judge. The judge postponed the start of the trial of "Coingate" entrepreneur Tom Noe from August 29 to October 10. If jury selection goes smoothly, details from Noe's trial should be filling the front pages of Ohio newspapers just in time for the November elections.
Ken Blackwell, Republican candidate for governor and the secretary of state who helped most in throwing the 2004 election to Bush, was among the recipients of Noe's generous campaign donations and has other close ties to the crook.
