I’ve been trying to figure out why Matt Naugle seems to go out of his way to write such glowing posts to help Josh Mandel’s State Treasurer’s race out so much. After all, the State Treasurer isn’t an appointment board position. It’s a rather uneventful and boring job. Josh Mandel was a liberal Democrat in OSU, until he realized that he had a better shot running as a Republican to get elected to the Statehouse.
And, let’s face it, Naugle’s not the most religiously tolerant guy around, to put it nicely.
So, a few months ago, I found this on the Secretary of State’s website:
A few months ago, Naugle wrote yet another Mandel piece. In the comments, I asked him if he’s ever disclosed that Naugle’s been paid by the campaign. Naugle responded by deleting the comment.
Today, Naugle is pimpin’ Mandel’s latest example of attacking Kevin Boyce over things that Josh Mandel obviously doesn’t understand. The Attorney General of California is former Governor/current Democratic candidate for Governor “Moonbeam” Jerry Brown. That, in and of itself, makes Naugle’s use of him as a means to try and attack Boyce, hysterical.
But what Mandel and his paid for say blogger apparently don’t understand is that the California suit has nothing to do with the services State Street is providing. Because State Treasurer Boyce specifically left out the services that are at issue in California.
If the State of Ohio adopted a policy of not investing with any company that’s been sued, then Ohio would have no place to invest money! It takes a Democratic officeholder to get Matt Naugle to adopt the legal theories of Moonbeam Brown. That and a $1,000.
