What You Missed This Week in #OHSEN: Sketchy Dealings, Out-Of-Step Positions, and One Expensive Whoopsie Daisy
June 30, 2023
It’s been a busy week in Ohio politics with the sentencing of Larry Householder and Matt Borges in the largest corruption case in state history – but don’t miss the Ohio Senate connection and everything else that happened this week in what’s already been called one of the “messiest, “most expensive” and “bruising” primary battles in the country.
NEW REPORT SHOWS FRANK LAROSE’S SUPER PAC IS BEING RUN BY FORMER HOUSEHOLDER OPERATIVE
New details about LaRose’s shady dealings come after Ohioans have slammed him for his shadow campaign which is being dogged by ethical and legal concerns. As more details come out, it’s becoming more and more clear that LaRose will do and say anything to gain power.
REMINDER: #OHSEN REPUBLICANS SUPPORT ABORTION BANS
It’s been one year since the Dobbs decision and every Republican running for Ohio’s Senate seat holds out-of-step positions on abortion, including supporting abortion bans that make no exceptions for rape or incest. Here’s what you need to know:
At his campaign launch, Bernie Moreno said he is “unequivocally pro-life.” He does not support exceptions for rape, incest, or life of the mother.
Frank LaRose celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade and has supported an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Matt Dolan celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling it “exciting.”
FRANK LAWHOOPS FEELS THE HEAT
Frank LaWhoops is running from accountability after being called out by outlets across Ohio for “screwing up big-time” and potentially costing Ohio taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars by sending the wrong ballot language to county elections officials for the August special election days before the deadline to mail absentee ballots to military members and overseas voters.
We’re STILL waiting for LaWhoops to answer: How much exactly is this blunder costing Ohio taxpayers?
INCOMING: Q2 NUMBERS DROPPING
It’s the end of the quarter which means Matt Dolan and Bernie Moreno will be dropping fundraising numbers soon. Will Dolan write himself another check to try to buy a Senate seat? Only time will tell.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
House Minority Leader Allison Russo: “Let me make one thing clear — every single candidate running for Ohio’s seat supports an abortion ban, including bans that make no exceptions for rape or incest. There’s no doubt in my mind that if elected, any one of these Republican candidates would support a total abortion ban without exceptions in Ohio and across the nation.”
