Columbus, OH — It’s now been over five weeks since Ohio Democrats sued Mike DeWine over his refusal to turn over records connected to the largest public corruption scandal in state history and resubmitted public records requests to get to the bottom of what DeWine knew and when. That’s five more weeks of empty claims from the DeWine team that he is “transparent and accountable.”
The lack of answers from DeWine led to even more questions about what DeWine is hiding, and led hundreds of Ohioans to write the governor demanding he tell Ohio what he knew and when as hardworking families continue to pay $287,000 each day because of the scandal.
“Five weeks is five weeks too long. Enough with the stall tactics, Ohioans deserve answers,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
Since October, Ohio Democrats have been working on getting answers to who knew what and when about the FirstEnergy scandal – which Ohioans continue to pay $287,000 every single day for – but have been stonewalled at every turn by the DeWine administration. The lack of accountability from DeWine is leading Ohioans in all corners of the state to wonder what he’s hiding and why.
