Dave Yost Wastes Ohio Taxpayer Dollars To Help Trump Campaign’s Legal Strategy

COLUMBUS — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is helping to undermine the legitimacy of the presidential election results and trying to prop up Donald Trump’s inept legal strategy by filing a brief in a U.S. Supreme Court case challenging the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s ability to run its elections as it sees fit.

“Dave Yost has sure come a long way from the days when he refused to support Donald Trump as a man who will ‘associate with any evil in order to gain power, or who will use the power of government to silence his critics,’” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “Now we see Yost ‘humoring’ Trump and using the power of Ohio government, and Ohio taxpayer dollars, to push a false narrative and discredit the election results. It’s stomach-churning to see an officeholder stoop to such behavior when Americans have for centuries embraced peaceful transitions of power.”
