Ohio Republicans under FBI investigation - pappy - 05-22-2012 08:52 AM
The Toledo Blade is reporting that the FBI is probing campaign contributions to US Rep. Renacci® and Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel® (running for Senate against Sen. Sherrod Brown for the US Senate) made by a Canton business man and employees of his company.
From the article:
Quote:Large campaign contributions from a Northern Ohio businessman and his employees to U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci and U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel have prompted a federal investigation, the campaigns confirmed Monday.

You know, how stupid does one have to be to still break the law with regard to campaign contributions even after Citizens United opened to the floodgates to fat-cat manipulation of the electoral process. I hope they throw the book at this guy.

Does anyone remember a guy named Tom Noe?
I knew this guy. He is now serving a long sentence, in part for spreading out illegally high campaign contributions to Bush in 2004 to look like it came from other people. THIS WAS IN OHIO FER PETE'S SAKE AND THE GUY IS STILL IN JAIL!!!! Don't Ohio Republicans have an ounce of brain matter in their heads?
Wait, don't answer that...........
