Dayton, OH — Today, Mike DeWine is coming to the Miami Valley to tout grants for Ohio law enforcement. The problem? Mike DeWine opposed the legislation passed by Democrats that made this funding possible. The funding for Miami Valley law enforcement comes from the American Rescue Plan, legislation that was passed by Ohio Democrats and that Mike DeWine said he would have voted against in March 2021. It’s another example of DeWine’s desperation and hypocrisy, using Democratic accomplishments to try to stay relevant politically and using Ohio law enforcement as a political pawn in the process.
“If it were up to Mike DeWine, the Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab would not be seeing one cent of this grant funding. DeWine opposed the legislation that makes this funding possible, and his efforts to claim credit for the work of Ohio Democrats to secure critical resources for Ohio law enforcement is shameful,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
