Jerry Springer to speak out against Ohio election law at rally Thursday


CINCINNATI — A political rally is bringing Jerry Springer back to Cincinnati, the city where the talk-show host once served as mayor.

The county Democratic Party says Springer will lead a rally Thursday evening in support of an effort to repeal an Ohio elections overhaul law.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that an email from the party says Springer "no doubt will have a few words to say."

The law moves Ohio's 2012 presidential primary from March to May and makes other changes, such as shortening the early voting period. It's opposed by Democrats, including President Barack Obama's re-election campaign in Ohio.

The law's detractors need to gather roughly 231,000 by Sept. 29 to put a repeal referendum on the November 2012 ballot.
