Apparently, I missed some good stuff while I was off at the Franklin Co. BoE voting this afternoon.
Expect fireworks this afternoon as Sherrod Brown’s campaign for U.S. Senate blasts the Republican National Committee and Sen. Mike DeWine’s reelection committee and demands that they immediately take down commercials with demonstrably false claims.
This goes to the new claim that Brown failed to pay $1,700 in unemployment taxes for 13 years. Brown thought something was wrong about that claim, checked it out through staff and learned today that he had in fact paid the debt in 1994. The state of Ohio — where DeWine was lieutenant governor at the time — screwed up matters and never released the lien until last year, according to the Brown campaign and records it unearthed.
If this doesn’t prove that the GOP will say anything to get elected, I don’t know what does.
