Romney lies again, says Obama is undermining voting rights of our military

The Obama campaign is suing Ohio to restore early voting for ALL Ohio voters, something Republican lawmakers in the state restricted to military service members only. In the 2008 election all Ohio voters had access to early voting. Mitt Romney, no stranger to lying, issued this statement on his Facebook page:

President Obama’s lawsuit claiming it is unconstitutional for Ohio to allow servicemen and women extended early voting privileges during the state’s early voting period is an outrage. The brave men and women of our military make tremendous sacrifices to protect and defend our freedoms, and we should do everything we can to protect their fundamental right to vote. I stand with the fifteen military groups that are defending the rights of military voters, and if I’m entrusted to be the commander-in-chief, I’ll work to protect the voting rights of our military, not undermine them. – Mitt Romney

Mittens isn’t even trying to stretch the truth with this statement, he is flat-out lying. I ask everyone to choose facts over pre-existing narratives. It is Republicans who are trying to restrict the vote and divide America. In this particular case the Obama campaign is simply asking for Ohio to extend the same voting rights to all citizens.
