Columbus, OH — In what’s become a pattern for Mike DeWine, he’s 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 today, DeWine is demanding reporters covering his press conference this morning 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.
“Mike DeWine once again thinks he’s above the rules and doesn’t need to bother lowering himself to answering questions about the issues Ohio voters care about. A free press is fundamental to our democracy and for Mike DeWine to try to control what questions reporters ask and when shows how little respect he has for Ohioans and the media asking questions on their behalf, ” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
