Frank LaRose Working to Silence, Overrule Ohioans: A Trip Down Memory Lane
September 21, 2023
Columbus, OH – Frank LaRose has been working to silence and overrule Ohioans for months, most recently by “twist[ing]” the November ballot language to be “intentionally misleading” and “deceit[ful].”. While LaRose is trying to make it harder for the November amendment to pass, he has promised to overrule the majority of Ohioans who support protecting reproductive rights by voting for a national abortion ban if elected to the Senate.
“If Frank LaRose cared about respecting the will of Ohioans, he would not try to intentionally mislead them with confusing and inaccurate ballot language, and he wouldn’t promise to impose a national abortion ban voters don’t support,” said ODP spokesperson Reeves Oyster. “Frank LaRose isn’t working for Ohioans and has proved he’ll do whatever it takes to support his own political ambitions.”
Here is a trip down memory lane of LaRose working to overrule and silence Ohioans:
June 2023: LaRose makes himself the face of an August amendment designed to benefit special interests and silence Ohioans and admits the quiet part out loud that the amendment is “100%” about blocking the November abortion rights amendment – resulting in criticism from his own party for bungling the messaging.
August 8, 2023: LaRose becomes Ohio’s biggest loser after the August amendment fails, suffocating his Senate launch in the process.
August 9, 2023: LaRose admits that even if the November amendment passes, he would overrule the majority of Ohioans who support protecting reproductive rights by voting for a national abortion ban if elected to the Senate.
September 19, 2023: Ohioans call out LaRose for silencing voters – referring to it as a “slap in the face.” The Ohio Supreme Court decides LaRose’s inaccurate language will appear on the ballot in November.
