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:
THE NAUGHTY LIST. For the second time in under a month, legal documents have raised more questions about Mike DeWine’s connections to the largest public corruption scandal in state history. Last Thursday, a new document was released seeking any correspondence between DeWine and dark money groups, raising further questions about what DeWine and his administration knew about the scandal and when.
A CHANGE OF HEART. Mike DeWine has been busy the last few weeks, traveling the state to claim credit for funding he opposed. All last week, DeWine shamelessly traveled the state to tout funding for Ohio communities that was secured through the legislation achieved only with Democratic support. Legislation which, by the way, DeWine himself has been on record opposing. While we’re glad Mike DeWine has finally figured out how positive the American Rescue Plan is for Ohio, we’d like him to at least give credit where credit is due. Mike DeWine is losing political support by the day and is desperate to remain relevant to Ohio voters, even if it means he has to use victories secured by Democrats to do it.
Thanks for catching up with us, that’s all the Mike Check we’ve got for this week. If you have questions my email is [email protected]. Have a great week!
