Starved for some good news for statewide Dems after being awash in a sea of DannGate, this is really good to hear about:
The secretary of state will accept a John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award in Boston for pushing Ohio away from touch-screen voting machines toward optically scanned paper ballots.
The award, named for Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book highlighting political acts of courage, previously has been bestowed on such noted political figures as former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
“Our democracy depends on voter trust,” foundation president Caroline Kennedy said in a news release, adding that Brunner’s efforts to earn that trust is one of the “true profiles in courage.”
