College students in Ohio's 15th congressional district and parents of children with learning
differences, Steve Stivers is NOT your candidate. Did you know that Republican candidate for Ohio's 15th congressional district, Steve Stivers, a former bank lobbyist, wants to end college loans and special education????(Source: 912 Union County & Galloway Federal Candidate Questionnaire, 11/09)
______________Why won't Jon Husted release his income tax returns? Is he hiding something?
The Democratic candidate for Ohio's Secretary of State, Mary Ellen O'Shaughnessy has raised some serious questions about Republican Husted's lack of transparency regarding his own income. Husted, a member of the "do as I say, not as I do" club, has refused to release his income tax returns. Democrat O'Shaughnessy has released her tax returns for the last few years, according to the Dayton Daily News.
Dayton Daily News:
...O’Shaughnessy campaign spokeswoman Heidi Hubmann said serious questions have been raised about whether Husted lives in Kettering. Husted says he lives in Kettering, but his campaign spokesman would not say whether Husted takes the tax deduction....
...The tax break for legislators who live outside the 50-mile radius allows them to take a deduction of as much as $157 per day for food and lodging during legislative sessions, according to a January 2010 memo from Senate Clerk Vincent Keeran provided by the O’Shaughnessy campaign.
For tax year 2009, a senator taking the maximum deduction could write off $55,870, according to the memo from the clerk, who could not be reached for comment.....
As noted in the Dayton Daily News, in 2006, Husted and his wife improperly took a "principal residence" tax deduction on a home in Franklin County and his house in Kettering.
Where does Jon Husted live? Does Husted think that residency laws and ethics are okay for other people but not him?
Do you remember this clipping from the Dayton Daily News (posted by BuckeyeStateBlog)?
I think that Democrats in Husted's State Senate District of Kettering need to go to his "house" and knock on the door. If you are handy with video, you could interview neighbors and ask them when they last saw Husted in his Kettering house. You might also want to verify that Husted is driving that new Ford he bought with that campaign money. Take some pictures and send them to the Ohio Democratic Party. I'm sure they'll put those pictures to good use.

Brad Bauman, the Communications Director for the Kilroy campaign, informed me that Republican candidate Steve Stivers, former bank lobbyist, is refusing to participate in an upcoming debate/forum with Democratic Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (OH-15th). Why? Stivers doesn't want to be involved if Constitution candidate, David Ryon, and Libertarian candidate, Bill Kammerer, are included the event. Sounds like Stivers is throwing a tantrum!!!!! What is he afraid of? Does Stivers think that Ryan and Kammerer will expose his pandering to groups like Glenn Beck's 912 project and the Tea Party? Encourage Stivers to participate in the WBNS event: (614) 358-0800.
