Mike DeWine Announces His Candidacy & Is Already Violating Campaign Laws
Here is his campaign website, and below is the screen capture:
What is the problem? According to Ohio Law, unlike Federal elections, the Treasurer must be listed in the disclaimer:
Campaign materials issued by a candidate’s campaign committee must state “paid for by” followed by the name of the committee and the residence or business address of the candidate, chairperson, treasurer or secretary of the campaign committee and must be located in a conspicuous place, unless the information is contained within the communication. If more than one piece of printed matter is mailed as a single packet, the disclaimer requirement is considered to be met if one of the pieces of printed matter contains the disclaimer. (R.C. 3517.20)
Since Attorney General is a step down for a former Senator, perhaps he was anxious and preparing the site for his next career move.
Mike, call your D.C.-based consultants, ASAP!
