All The News That Fits

Money, Elections, SEIU, and Ohio

Posted by Nancy on May 4, 2010

Today was primary election day in Ohio, and their Democratic governor ran unopposed.  He also started his bid for re-election in November’s general election.

Nothing like going negative first thing, using a recycled ad originally paid for by the SEIU.

Strickland’s current ad:

Compare that to this 2009 presidential ad:

Same factory in the background, same actress (who, according to thirdbasepolitics, is gainfully employed as a nurse), same sad story.  An honest presentation would mention that Ted Strickland does not want to see NAFTA overturned.

Declaring that it is “not the time for a trade war,” Gov. Ted Strickland appeared today to approve of President Barack Obama’s decision last week not to reopen the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.  Columbus Dispatch Feb 22, 2009

I hope the voters in Ohio are paying attention as their governor begins his purported $500k in ad buys. 

Half a million for a governorship while Congressional Democrats complain about the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court.  Democracy is for sale and the Democrats want to decide who can get in on the bidding.
