Jon Keeling writes a post about Governor Strickland raising money in New York City for the Ohio Democratic Party and declares that this makes Strickland a hypocrite for all his talk about “Wall Street.”  Because just like his old boss John Kasich, Keeling apparently believes that there’s only one road in NYC.

Wall Street and Wall StreetApparently, the Carpetblogger didn’t know that Josh Mandel, GOP candidate for State Treasurer, just hit NYC on Tuesday for a lil’ R& R jaunt of his own.

And what “sights” did Mr. Mandel see on his NYC adventure?  Well, he went to a fundraiser at the Law Offices of Kirby, McInerney, LLP at 825 3rd Avenue (formerly known as Wall Street).  The fundraising event was also cosponsored by the law firm Pillsbury, Winthrop, Shaw, Pittman, LLP, who have their office on 1550 Broadway (formerly known as Wall Street.)

But do you know these firms have in common?  Yep, they specializing in underwriting and pension systems for their clients, who actually are on the original Wall Street.

Josh Mandel didn’t need to go to those firms to learn about how Wall Street can affect our state pensions.  He could just talk to the rest of his ticket:

Wall Street will be able to put their lobbyists out of business in Ohio if the GOP wins because they’re former pitchman will be Governor.  No lobbying needed.  (Keep the checks coming, though.)

    Modern, do you happen to have a link to the big Plain Dealer story on this? It must have been on the front page with a big screaming headline since they are the big corruption watchdogs, right? I mean, they keep on attacking county executive candidate Ed FitzGerald for getting a donation from the plumber’s union which was “signed by” someone indicted in the county corruption mess, because he used to be the union’s business manager. So I’m sure they must be insane over Mandel pre-corrupted the treasurer’s office and giving away control of taxpayer money before he even gets his hands on it, right?
