Reacting sharply to growing criticism that he heads the most secretive administration in Ohio history, Gov Kasich called a press conference at the Statehouse to denounce the critics as “stupid”.

Citing JobsOhio as an example, he said he saw no advantage in revealing to  West Virginia the details of how his buddy Mark Kvamme, the venture capitalist, and former head of the private public agency,  worked out a neat $50 million deal with Ohio State University that could  eventually lead to the hiring of six and possibly seven more assistant coaches for the Buckeyes’ football team.

The governor then left the room without taking questions from reporters.
