Niehaus accuses anti-SB 5 protesters of “defecating” in the building and defacing the walls in protest.  This has been pushed for the past 24 hours by no less than Jon Keeling, Deputy Communication Director for Governor Kasich and other conservative Twits on Twitter (TM).

Like Senate Majority Communication Director Jason Mauk who spread this picture around Twitter last night:


President Niehaus cited this defecation and act of vandalism to justify the Highway Patrol’s unprecedented actions yesterday in locking people out of the Statehouse.

Wait for it….

Wait for it…

I’m going to let the Columbus Dispatch take it from here:

But Gregg Dodd, spokesman for the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, said the defecation did not occur inside the Statehouse, but rather in one of the stairwells from the underground parking garage leading up to High Street. People often gather in those areas to wait for buses or for other reasons, Dodd said, and it is not uncommon for people to relieve themselves in those stairwells.

Dodd said the writing on the wall was done in chalk and was easily washed away. It took crews more time to scrape stickers off some of the floors.

Yep, Niehaus was lying and Mauk was freaking out over chalk.

Chalk This is a pretty pathetic attempt to smear the name of private citizens who came to protest the Statehouse who were unjustly locked out from addressing their own elected representatives in government.

Should someone use chalk on the walls?  Of course not, but to conflate what a likely homeless person or drunk lobbyist or legislator did in the garage stairwell and someone else using a writing instrument you can remove with your finger as union folks defecating and defacing the Statehouse like crazy is just shameful.

These people have no decency.  They will lie straight through their teeth.

    what’s with these Republicans being obsessed with bodily fluids. First, anti-breastfeeding. Then the urine for heating assistance. Now examining turds. As a psychologist, I gotta turn to Freud on this one.

    I am surprised the Dispatch went through the extra effort to get the facts straight.

    The Dispatch printed another anti-Union editorial today which included some serious mental gymnastics. Basically state union workers do not count as middle class because they are government workers. Or something. The unions don’t represent the middle class, even though they are middle class, because they happen to work for the government. And then the entire argument about how the all of the burden for state government falls on the private middle class will always lead to horrifying burdens on the middle class..even though taxes have been falling, state workers wages and benefits have been falling…

    I don’t know. Somehow it has to be true. Someday maybe they’ll find legitimate reasons as to why.

    I stopped reading the Dispatch editorial page. My blood pressure has dropped down as a result.

    As a teacher, I’ve been bitten, bled on, point-blank-range sneezed at, and thrown up on. Next time, I’ll bring some of my students so he experience first hand what we get covered with every day.

    I don’t know, if there is an expert on shit, it would be Niehaus.

    You should cancel your subscription to the Dispatch. Need a paper that has the guts to print facts not fiction. We have a gutsy paper, The Athens News, here in Athens County.

    Is Rahm your new Mayor? The point is that the Senate GOP accused union friendly protestors of something they didn’t do and was probably done by a homeless person because it unfortunately happens regularly.

    As someone who works in an urban environment I encounter human vomit, urine, and feces on a regular basis, in stairwells, tunnels, bus stops, and even on the side walks of busy streets. It makes me angry that I have to deal with such unpleasentness, but it does not surprise me.

    We all need to do this. I call on my fellow Northeast Ohioans to cancel the Plainly Republican (Plain Dealer) as well. The only way to get through to these right-wing mouthpieces is to not read them. Unfortunately, I doubt they’ll ever wake up and realize that speaking honestly and fairly about the issues facing the people in their area might make them more relevant. They will continue to be mouthpieces for the wealthy and powerful as their circulation evaporates and eventually they’re forced out of business. It’s sad.

    Wow – the Disgrace has really turned into a rag since I moved from Columbus.

    Everyone who has ever lived in Columbus (well, anyone who is honest) knows that there is a very stable middle class there. And that middle class exists primarily because of state employees – not OSU employees, not Nationwide employees, not Battelle/Lucent employees.

    For the Disgrace to pretend otherwise is ludicrous.

    What a bunch of bullcrap….I mean the statehouse is a beautiful, historic building and some of those “goons” showed great disrespect for it.
