#OHSEN Slugfest: Bernie Moreno’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week
February 9, 2024
Columbus, OH – From opposing securing the border, to facing more attacks and scrutiny for destroying evidence to get out of paying his employees overtime (plus a new fact check exposing another lie), to a new AP report revealing his sleazy insider past, Bernie Moreno had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. While Moreno shows Ohioans time and time again they “just can’t trust” him and Frank LaRose and Matt Dolan throw more gasoline on the Slugfest fire, it’s clearer than ever that no one in the #OHSEN field is fighting for Ohioans.
MORENO IS *AGAINST* STRENGTHENING BORDER SECURITY
Bernie Moreno opposed “the most conservative border bill in decades.” While Moreno tries to talk tough, he is nowhere to be found when it comes to standing up for Ohioans.
Moreno’s opposition to what’s been called “the most substantial border security policy in 30 years” shows he is “not a serious person” and does not care about doing what’s right for Ohio.
See what border control agents were saying about this bill:
Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens on Fox News: “There are aspects of this bill that would have added additional hundreds of border patrol agents to our rank and file. It would have given us more technology. It would have given us more equipment, infrastructure. Of course I’m going to be supportive of that.”
Border Patrol Agents: “[The bill would] drop illegal border crossings nationwide and will allow our agents to get back to detecting and apprehending those who want to cross our border illegally and evade apprehension… This is why the National Border Patrol Council endorses this bill and hopes for its quick passage.”
In case it wasn’t clear enough:
MORENO STILL FACING ATTACKS OVER SHREDDING EVIDENCE IN WAGE THEFT LAWSUITS
After “downplay[ing] the seriousness” of shredding evidence he was legally required to keep to get out of paying his employees overtime wages they’d earned, Moreno thought he could get away unscathed.
But it’s clear Ohioans won’t be forgetting this any time soon. At least not if Matt Dolan and Frank LaRose have anything to say about it:
Matt Dolan describing Bernie: “Disingenuous… When people needed his trust, he turned his back on them… it’s another example of where you just can’t trust [Moreno]… He won’t do what’s best for Ohioans and Americans, he will do what’s best for Bernie Moreno.”
Frank LaRose describing Bernie: “This is a guy that does what is in his own best interest… Not [a] trustworthy person… Self-serving…”
Here’s a refresher from WKYC:
THEY BROUGHT THE RECEIPTS: MORENO GETS CAUGHT RED HANDED TRYING TO ESCAPE SCRUTINY ABOUT HIS PAST
WKYC caught Bernie Moreno red-handed trying to run away from scrutiny about his past. Unfortunately for Bernie, he’s already made it clear he’s only out for himself and doesn’t believe the rules apply to him.
Remember, Bernie: You can try to run, but you can’t hide!
FACT CHECK: MORENO CALLED OUT FOR LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH
The Truth: The “judges were largely appointed by Republicans.”
Mother Jones: “But there’s a problem with Moreno’s defense: it isn’t true.”
Ohioans to Bernie Moreno:
NEW AP REPORT SHOWS INSIDER BERNIE MORENO USED POLITICAL CONNECTIONS TO BOOST BUSINESSES
