Given that Bill Todd is a lawyer, you’d think he’d take a look at the law i.e. the relevant Ohio Revised Code (ORC) sections prior to throwing out accusations against the Strickland administration and Mayor Michael Coleman.
In it, Bill Todd claims that Mayor Coleman hired his own wife while serving as the voluntary chair for Strickland’s transition team. But, according to the ORC (Sec. 107.29 Gubernatorial transition committee), the voluntary chair has no hire/fire authority- he merely assists with recommendations for cabinet-level appointments.
Bill Todd also charges that the Strickland administration and Mayor Coleman are stonewalling his Freedom of Information request even though the ORC provides the state 30 days to reply. It’s been one week.
It also seems worth mentioning that Frankie Coleman has over twenty years experience in human resources and workforce development- but Bill Todd charges she had no business being hired because she was not “eligible, competent or qualified.”
So did Bill Todd fail to do his research? Or is he just a big, fat liar?
