February 9, 2023
Columbus, OH – Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement after a journalist was arrested yesterday at Governor DeWine’s press conference.
“At a time when journalists and news media already have to worry about their safety and well-being due to political attacks, the arrest of a journalist for simply doing his job is unacceptable. Freedom of the press is one of the core tenets of our nation, and yesterday’s incident flew in the face of that freedom,” said Chair Walters.
