Give the guys at Weapons of Mass Discussion credit, they’re willing to go where Speaker Batchelder and the rest of the GOP won’t.

In separate posts, contributors Matt Hurley and Mark publicly call for State Representative Mecklenborg to resign.  Hurley appears particularly offended by Speaker Batchelder’s weak statement this evening:

These "responses" are weak.  Whatever happened to "zero-tolerance"?

Yeah, GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine, what ever happened to “zero-tolerance?

After his election as chairman, he introduced a 10-point strategy, called the Leading Ohio Plan, designed to center the Ohio Republican Party’s political resurgence on a set of fundamental goals. The plan calls for restoring the party’s conservative credibility, developing a broad policy agenda, building beyond the party’s traditional base, re-engaging the middle class, connecting on campuses, developing advanced voter contact programs, using new technology to improve communications, creating a comprehensive political education program, improving candidate recruitment and enforcing a zero-tolerance policy for misconduct.

Or does the Ohio GOP approve of what State Representative Mecklenborg allegedly did in April?

    Maybe it was a cleverly disguised fact-finding mission into the issue of casinos. He was exploring the ability of the authorities to maintain safety on the highways, the effects of distances between casinos and those businesses (like strip joints, etc.) that will bloom and prosper in the vicinity, and of course, researching the long-term career opportunities that could be made available to Ohioans – at least, those who are young, female, and beautiful – in the casino and other entertainment industries.

    Yeah, that’s it! As chairman of the Ethics Committee it is his right – nay, his obligation! – to assure that every booze-swilling, Viagra-popping, slot-machine clanging Ohioan has the right to embarrass, humiliate, and otherwise degrade his family and constituents!

    Thank you, I say! Thank you, Representative Mecklenborg! Keep up (see the pun? see it?) the good work, sir!!

    Speaker Batchelder’s statement almost sound like he thinks Representative Mecklenborg is the victim here. The real question is how long did Speaker Batchelder and the rest of the Ohio GOP Leadership know about this arrest.

    I have news for you Speaker Batchelder and Representative Mecklenborg, if you do something as stupid as this, you and your families have NO expectation of privacy. If you want privacy from the press and public then I suggest you resign (something you should of done soon after you got busted)

    He’s had since April…. You sure seem awfully defensive about Mecklenborg. I couldn’t help but notice that all you’ve done is try to attack us collaterally by point out we have a progressive bias (boy, that was a hard one to prove), but you’ve never actually addressed what Mecklenborg has supposedly done.

  • What continuously surprises me is the fact that these lawmakers even have time for these shenanigans.  Have they been breaking open meeting laws and shortening voting periods just to make the leisure time to enjoy these drunken adventures?

    Since conservatives like to Focus on the Family of people they hate, it’s time for merciless payback.  His pathetic pleas for privacy will be ignored.  We will Focus on Your Family, Mecklenborg.  Resigning, in disgrace, is the only way to get the privacy you seek.

    what tickles me most is that the word “progressive” means nothing in america.  it is nothing more than a “good guy badge” that democrats wear to make themselves feel good and a shibboleth to frighten conservatives (lunatics).  it’s time to start talking about real progressive politics:  socialism.

    This guy is the leader of the Ohio Ethics comittee???? He thinks this is a private issue, and that it’s none of our business…….YET Mr. Ethical here has decided that my uterus is his business (with his ‘ethical’ abortion bill he just pushed through the Ohio Legislature……..) So I guess since my UTERUS and what I do with it is his business, then his drunken, viagara, strip joint, stripper in his car evening is my business right??? Dear Mr. Ethics – please stop telling me what is right or wrong and what I can and cannot do with my body, and then I won’t worry about what you’re doing in you ‘spare time’……..Wonder how he defines ethical????’

    Wonder how he would have felt about abortion if stripper girl got knocked up in their little hook-up???

    Zero tolerance only applies to non-Republicans and RINO’s.

    He’s mad because those “missing 50 million” surely would have been fetching altar boys and hot strippers who’d “put out for Social Security” — which begs the question:  do pedophile priests and adulterous politicians pay their share of Social Security taxes on the services of their raped altar boys and boozed-up hookers??
