Ohio Democrats Call Treasurer Out on Campaign Funds

Wednesday, 16 Nov 2011 03:05 AM

By Sandy Fitzgerald

Ohio Democrats are criticizing Treasurer Josh Mandel — who is considering a run for the state’s U.S. Senate seat as a Republican in 2012 — for not explaining his campaign disbursements in his latest Federal Elections Commission (FEC) report.
The FEC requires candidates to fill out the purpose for each disbursement, said the Columbus Dispatch, but the Ohio Democratic Party says Mandel refused to do so nearly 300 times.
“Either Josh Mandel is so hopelessly inept that once again the guy in charge of the state’s tax dollars can’t fill out basic campaign finance documents, or he’s knowingly covering up the purpose of hundreds of his disbursements,” said Democratic spokesman Justin Barasky. “Either way, the problem must be addressed to avoid another FEC complaint.”
Mandel is expected to run next year against incumbent Democratic Sen. Sherrrod Brown, and the treasurer’s spokesman pointed out Brown’s campaign amended some 83 FEC reports over the past 15 years.
Joe Aquilino, representing Mandel, said a software glitch caused the treasurer’s omissions, the problem has been fixed, and the report will be amended.
Meanwhile, the Ohio Democratic Party says it will file a complaint with the FEC if Mandel doesn’t fix the report.
