Ohio Republican Party uses auditor's office as bargaining chipPosted by DarthDilbert at 2/02/2010 07:55:00 AM
Huber Heights, Ohio - The Ohio Republican Party elite showed today how backroom deals do not serve Ohio citizens. After political pressure, Delaware County Prosecutor Dave Yost caved to the party select by bowing out of the Ohio Attorney General race that he had campaigned for more than a year against Mike DeWine in the Republican primary election and was dealt an endorsement by the party for Ohio auditor.
"Dave Yost would have been a great attorney general," said Rob Scott, Communications Director of Friends of Seth Morgan. "The Ohio auditor's office is not a bargaining chip to be played for nor is it an office for someone who concedes to political pressure."
"Seth Morgan is unbending towards the political establishment and special interests. As a certified public accountant, a small business owner, and employer, he understands the importance of objectivity and independence for the taxpayers of Ohio," Scott said.
Seth Morgan was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in 2008 after serving seven years on the Huber Heights City Council. He is a Small Business Owner and Certified Public Accountant. For more information about Seth Morgan visit www.SethMorgan.org.
