Subj: Ohio Chamber reneges on commitment to produce names of contributors

At today’s hearing at the Ohio Elections Commission, Bradley Smith, former chairman of the Federal Elections Commission, serving as counsel to Partnership for Ohio’s Future, stated that all anyone had to do was ask for their list of contributors–and Cliff did not ask. TV 10 and a film maker videoed the hearing, and a court reporter recorded it as well.

After the hearing I asked and was assured by Linda Woggon in the presence of Brad Smith that the she would send the information to me. I served subpoenas for the information when I did not receive anything. Brad then called me and said that they would have the material by 2:00 pm, or 3:00 at the latest. At 3:30 a delivery person arrived at my office with a motion to quash our subpoenas.

The Chamber has returned to a policy of secrecy after four election cycles in which it published the names of its contributors to influence candidate elections.

There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
