State Dems sue Kasich to release public records
Dems want to see schdules, emails; Republican spokesmen say the information is already available
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT JO INGLES


Reporter
Jo Ingles
 

The Ohio Democratic Party is suing Gov. John Kasich, saying he’s illegally hiding public records, including his schedule.

Ohio Democratic Party spokesman Chris Redfern says Democrats want Kasich’s monthly schedule, travel logs and emails to find out if he’s illegally using taxpayer money to campaign for Mitt Romney.

Redfern says he received a list of 127 events that the governor participated in, but information on 83 of those was blacked out.

“So we don’t know what he was doing and with whom he was doing it and how much time he was spending on Mitt Romney’s campaign for instance.”

But Romney campaign spokesman Terry Casey says there could be good reasons for the redacted information: Bringing jobs to Ohio businesses requires some discretion.

“You don’t want to put out in press releases every prospective business or business leader you are talking to because they like to ask questions with some degree of confidentiality.”

A statement from Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols says the office has released the governor’s schedule six times, including to the Ohio Democratic Party.  

Listener Comments:

"A statement from Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols says the office has released the governor’s schedule six times, including to the Ohio Democratic Party." - Why do the dems continually find fault with Republicans', but their own party is protected? How much has Timmy Geitner been punished for his false recording of his records; how much has Eric Holder suffered for his dereliction of duties? We can be sure they, and many others would be slandered by the media if they were Republican; the media can't avoid Romney's tax returns, or his 46% remark, however Obama stated that he wasn't concerned about the middle-class that will vote against him - why should they be concerned about people that have their mind made up to not support you? Few have considered that the takeover of GM is the same as Romney's Bain capital involvement - the difference is that Romney's company restructured to save businesses, Obama restructured for a government takeover at taxpayer expense. The media focuses on the attack on Iraq, and the fast and furious debacle gets slight attention. - taxpayers are paying for corruption, and we should worry about minute details of a Governor's records.
