“Josh Mandel Says He Knows Way to More Jobs”

So reads a headline in this weekend’s Canton Repository: http://www.cantonrep.com/topstories/x1446675959/Ohio-Treasurer-Mandel-kn… No, don’t get all excited and think that The Empty Suit has actually come up with a substantive economic plan that will work.

It’s Like RMoney is Mocking Voters

I’ve been following the steady stream of revelations about Mitt RMoney’s financial dealings and his desperate, flailing efforts to continue to conceal them and to brand demands for more transparency on his part as somehow below-the-belt, or “disgusting” as one of his spokespersons said.

Husted on Track to Eclipse Ken Blackwell as Ohio’s Worst Secretary of State

Last weekend, we posted about Jon Husted’s decision to limit in-person early voting to weekday business hours — when many working people cannot get there. http://www.ohiodailyblog.com/content/jon-husted-enemy-democracy Although it’s the legislature and not Husted that pulled the dirty trick that repealed HB 194 yet kept in place the blackout of early voting the three days prior […]
