Columbus, OH — It’s now been more than three weeks since Ohio Democrats sued Mike DeWine over his refusal to turn over records connected to the largest public corruption scandal in state history and resubmitted public records requests to get to the bottom of what DeWine knew and when. None of those records requests has been fulfilled despite empty claims from the DeWine team about the governor’s commitment to “transparency and accountability.” The lack of answers from DeWine leads to even more questions about what DeWine is hiding, especially as the scandal inches closer and closer to DeWine and his inner circle.
“Ohio Democrats are demanding answers from DeWine on behalf of Ohio voters. Ohioans are being saddled with a $287,000 bill every single day because of the Republican-led scandal, and we can’t even get answers from DeWine about what he knew and when. Enough with the stall tactics, Ohioans deserve answers,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
Since October, Ohio Democrats have been working on getting answers to who knew what and when about the FirstEnergy scandal – which Ohioans continue to pay $287,000 every single day for – but have been stonewalled at every turn by the DeWine administration. The lack of accountability from DeWine is leading Ohioans in all corners of the state to wonder what he’s hiding and why.
