Good Monday afternoon, and welcome back to Mike Check, your weekly source of all the infighting, conspiracy spewing and corruption that’s making headlines in and around the Republican governor’s race and Mike DeWine’s statehouse, courtesy of the Ohio Democratic Party.
As the gubernatorial race heats up, Republicans are in disarray with Mike DeWine’s popularity dropping by the day, facing attacks both inside and outside of the Republican Party, and having to answer for the largest public corruption scandal in state history. It’s hard to keep up with all of the corruption and mess surrounding Mike DeWine and the GOP gubernatorial primary, so here are some stories you may have missed:
RECUSAL WOES. Pat DeWine is once again picking and choosing when he wants to rule on cases involving his dad or not, playing politics with the highest court in Ohio. Last week, Pat DeWine, refused to hear arguments or rule on a case closing last week involving the state’s “Vax-A-Million” COVID vaccine lottery. The reason? His father was one of the defendants. Yet, hearing a case involving your dad and other Republicans blatantly shoving political power towards themselves through gerrymandered district maps is perfectly “ethical?” Ok, Pat.
DODGING DEWINE. Mike DeWine is once again hiding and dodging any accountability to Ohio voters, this time by trying to dictate to the Ohio press corps what questions they’re allowed to ask. Ahead of a press conference Friday morning DeWine demanded reporters submit their questions ahead of time, showing how scared he really is to take accountability and answer questions about the real issues impacting Ohio:
It’s only the latest example of DeWine dodging accountability as he’s spent the last year trying to ‘no comment’ his way out of the largest public corruption scandal in Ohio history and refusing to tell Ohioans what he knew about the scandal and when.
