Democratic House member John Patrick Carney makes it official.

“Today, I’m announcing my candidacy for Auditor of the State of Ohio.”

Carney’s announcement is probably the worst kept secret in the halls of the Statehouse.  Political insiders have expected it for months.

 After all, Carney has been an outspoken critic of JobsOhio, the state’s non-profit private job creation corporation.  And he’s taken issue with Republicans, including Ohio Auditor Dave Yost, over other issues. 

The Ohio Republican Party’s Chris Schrimpf says voters cannot trust Carney to be the state’s top fiscal watchdog.  He says Carney was one of the Democrats who voted to appoint former Democratic Treasurer Kevin Boyce to a statewide office in 2012.  Since that time, one of Boyce’s former staffers has been indicted on federal conspiracy, bribery and money laundering charges. 

Carney says the party is throwing up smoke to distract from the issues.

 

Listener Comments:

Let's see, he once supported someone whose staffer was indicted on federal charges? Did he once see a picture of Charles Manson? Did he once talk to someone who robbed somebody? What does Schrimpf's comments have to do with anything meaningful? And shame on WKSU for even repeating Schrimpf's statement. Report the news and don't broadcast ridiculous comments from politicos.
