From Lisa Renee at GCJ, this from the Bob Latta campaign:

Today, the Buehrer campaign, through his manager Jim Banks, has submitted a records request at BGSU. What is to gain by attacking my wife? All of these records are public. There has never been anything to hide. So what?s the point?

I guess in my opponent?s case, when you get tired of attacking the candidate you attack his family. To attack my wife is beyond belief. Please point me to another election in northwest Ohio when this has ever happened. Mr. Buehrer, I am only going to tell you this once, stay away from my wife. And let me also add my kids are also off limits. I had better add Maci our Boston Terrier to the list, too.

The office of the United States House of Representatives is one that should be respected and not trivialized. No wonder the public has been losing faith in our elected leaders and so many good people are staying out of public service.

From someone who runs a campaign like this one, I don?t expect an apology.

I completely agree with Bob in this regard, but maybe Bob should consult with his legal and public affairs consultant Scott Pullins who seems to be familiar with the art of attacking people’s family.

  • Then there is the irony of family being off limits after the earlier comments Kevin DeWine stated on the issue of “how low can you go”.

    I’ve been trying to cover this race since there is a small part of Lucas County that is in the Fifth District and I’m so close to Wood County. While on GCJ I try to cover information for everybody, as a Democrat, I hope this does help Robin as she can demonstrate to voters that she is concentrating on the real issues.

    Thanks for the link love 🙂

  • #1: Hey LR! It’s a mess right? One big glorious mess! 😉

    I do think Republicans must fight hard to ensure they get the best possible conservative candidate they can get. I’m not sure they have that figured out yet, but we’ll be watching…

    “To attack my wife is beyond belief. Please point me to another election in northwest Ohio when this has ever happened.”

    Well if you include statewide elections, there’s the little fact that your OEC lawyer tried to use Kentucky corporation records to “prove” Ohio’s first lady is a lesbian. (A evidentiary link I still don’t understand to this day, and one he quietly dropped).
