Ohio Democrat Update: Unemployment Up, Jennifer Brunner Topless

June 19, 2009 at 3:09 pm Matt

From hairless Mark Naymick of the Plain Dealer:

[Ohio Secretary of State] Brunner, reported an income of $109,553 in 2008 and three accounts with her husband, two checking accounts and an investment with Wachovia Securities worth between $1,000 and $15,000.

But unlike Fisher and Portman, Brunner did not list a specific investment fund. Brunner said in an interview with The Plain Dealer she received a letter from the U.S. Senate asking for more details, which the campaign is providing. She also acknowledged that the campaign failed to clarify that the second source of income listed on her form – The Brunner Law Co. – is her husband’s, not hers. She said that will be corrected also.

This is brazenly unethical behavior, as this is basic campaign finance rule compliance and she is the CHIEF ELECTION OFFICIAL OF OHIO! And this in addition to her recent illegal purchase of office equipment using her state campaign funds.

After the Lee Fisher video, I’m just kidding about a topless Brunner. But when it comes to her finances,  I will keep readers abreast of the situation.

In other news, the Ohio unemployment rate has more than doubled under Strickland’s watch, and is now up to 10.8%. I honestly never liked it when politicans would attack each other when the rate was in the 6% range, as that is so close to the natural rate of unemployment. But now, things are so bad in Ohio, and the Strickland regime has no clue as to how encourage economic growth in the state. Did anyone voting for him know this was what he meant by turning around Ohio?

Strickland hasn’t released a statement on the matter yet, as he is too busy screwing up the Duke energy nuclear power plant deal.
