Rush Limbaugh, Fifth-Degree Felonies, and You

An investigation of illegal crossover voting in the Ohio primary is underway, and there's more discussion of whether Rush Limbaugh's encouragement to Republicans to vote for Clinton was illegal:

While this all makes for great talk radio and sounds like fun, there is one catch: What Limbaugh encouraged Republican voters to do in Ohio was a fifth-degree felony in that state, punishable with a $2,500 fine and six to 12 months in jail. That is because in order to change party affiliation in Ohio, voters have to fill out a form swearing allegiance to that party's principles "under penalty of election falsification."

It is quite an interesting read if you're into things like election law.
