In The Region:

The woman who would like to be Ohio’s next lieutenant governor says she is concerned about two resignations that took place recently in current Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor’s office.

Sharen Neuhardt is the running mate of Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald. She says she wants more information about why one of the women who resigned from Taylor’s office claimed she was in a hostile work environment.

"I don’t know enough to comment about what she is saying is going on. I do think that it is apparent that she thinks there was an environment in place that was legally something that was not defensible so we are going to have to wait and see about this," Neuhardt says.

Over the weekend, FitzGerald questioned the situation and repeatedly used the word “scandal” when referencing it. The two employees who resigned did so after questions were raised about whether they falsified their time sheets and work hours.

Republicans point out they have been trying to get FitzGerald to release key card data to prove his work hours. Fitzgerald says he won’t release it due to security concerns.
