Thrilled by the recent success of awarding 50 lottery-produced tickets to Gov. Kasich’s  state of the state speech,  Republican insiders are said to be hopeful of applying  the same scheme  to a voter-repressed pool.

With the pending doom of the so-called Golden Week that would have permitted six additional days for same-day registration and voting (as in 2012),  GOP electoral guards  reportedly  are supporting a lottery that would hand out 100 same-day voting and registration tickets for this year’s election.

An enthusiastic aide to the governor said such a plan would not only be fail-safe but quite likely encourage the lucky winners to vote Republican in gratitude for the party’s deep concern for voting rights.
