Ohio Dems side with GOP auditor in fight over JobsOhio audit

In The Region:

A day after a measure blocking the state auditor from auditing JobsOhio blasted through the House, it was on the Senate floor. And Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler reports the GOP auditor  got some support from members of the opposing party.

Auditor David Yost sent the Republican-dominated Senate a letter saying he can’t support the amendment blocking his authority to audit JobsOhio. Parts of the letter were read on the Senate floor by Democratic minority leader Eric Kearney.

“I have many more questions than answers at this time, but I know this: Speed is seldom the companion of wisdom.”

But Republican Sen. Bill Seitz of Cincinnati said since JobsOhio had paid for the rights to the state’s liquor profits to fund its operations, that’s now private money. He offered what he said was a similar scenario – if the Columbus Public Schools sold a building to the Columbus Blue Jackets hockey team, making that building private. 
“We do not subject the Columbus Blue Jackets to audit in that situation because they’ve acquired formerly public property from a public entity.”

The amendment  was approved in a party line vote.

Listener Comments:

Actually, it was not a party line vote. Republican Kris Jordan from Delaware did the right thing and stood up against every single one of his colleagues in the Senate and voted against the measure.

Get your facts straight. It wasn't a party line vote!

Actually the vote was not party line. Perhaps you should get your facts straight. Kris Jordan - (R) from Delaware, OH voted against the measure and the rest of the Republicans. BRAVO Kris Jordan! I wish you were my representative.
