Frank LaRose Gets Called Out for His Election Hypocrisy
August 24, 2021
Columbus, OH — Frank LaRose’s partisan political hypocrisy is once more on display for all to see. LaRose continues to try to claim credit for a successful 2020 election while also supporting a bill that would attack the voting methods that made the election a success, including dropboxes, early voting and absentee voting. The bill — HB 294 — is a wink and a nod to the Big Lie, part of a nationwide effort to appease the failed blogger from Florida in a direct attack on Ohioans’ right to vote.
And LaRose will always put his political ambitions above the needs of Ohio voters. He is pushing this bill to shore up his political support, especially now that he has a primary challenger. It was never about election integrity at all, and Ohio media is starting to call him out on it.
As LaRose tried to brag yesterday once again about the success of the 2020 election, Darrel Rowland from the Columbus Dispatch tweeted: “Guess that means we should rip it up and add a bunch of new restrictions, huh?”
LaRose cannot continue to try to spin both the 2020 election and the harmful GOP anti-voter bill in his favor, he must be forced to answer how future elections will be made more secure by directly attacking Ohioans’ right to vote. And he must be held accountable for continuing to talk about election integrity while sharing a stage with Jim Jordan, one of the leading proponents of the Big Lie, and sitting by silently as his fellow Republicans like Josh Mandel and Jane Timken call the results of the 2020 election into question and promote false claims.
