Isn’t it interesting that this Columbus pro-tax increase campaign website has NO disclaimer? They are also running ads without dislaimers too, including on and have been for a couple weeks. Someone should file a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission, as they are in clear violation of the law.

In addition, Lee Roberts, Mike Brown, and all the other Coleman Hacks couldn’t even find one of the many Columbus-area tech-lefties to design their website. Instead, the statists outsourced their shady tax-and-spend campaign to North Carolina:

Registrant Name:Clay Schossow
Registrant Organization:new media campaigns
Registrant Street1:605 W. Main St.
Registrant Street2:Suite 206
Registrant City:Carrboro
Registrant State/Province:North Carolina
Registrant Postal Code:27612
Registrant Phone:+1.9193387830
Registrant Email:

In addition, the pro-Issue 1 campaign has recieved no money from the Fraternal Order of Police or International Association of Firefighters. So firefighters didn’t support this campaign at all, but that didn’t stop Coleman’s scumbags from trying to scare voters into thinking that if they don’t vote for this income tax increase, then YOUR HOUSE WILL NOT BE SAVED IF ON FIRE AND YOUR FAMILY WILL DIE! AHHHH!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES AND VOTE!!!!!:

    First of all I am simply a Columbus resident who believes that we need to pass issue one to keep Columbus nice. We don't want to become Detroit or Cleveland.

    So maybe you should do a little more research before you post lies on your blog. The website for the issue one campaign is http://www.voteforcolumbus.org and it does IN FACT have a disclaimer on the bottom.

    Also both the FOP http://www.fop9.org/endorsements.html and the Firefighters http://www.local67.com/ have endorsed issue one and have been out campaigning for months in support of the issue.

    Hope in the future you will do research you before you spew lies. I guess it doesn't matter because no one really reads your blog anyway.

      Apparently you do, sweetie.

      There is no disclaimer on the site I linked to, and an FOP endorsement is different than giving money for this specific firefighters campaign.

    I read your blog to get a laugh, FYI.

    And I would say the fact that both organizations are tirelessly working to get the issue passed is a much better indication than just handing over a check. Especially considering the opposition campaign has no money and businesses and leaders in Ohio have come together to support issue one.

      Instead of the opposition's lack of money, the well-funded nature of the Issue 1 campaign is much more telling. Business leaders dare not cross MC.

    Or maybe their support underscores the importance of maintaining the way of life for themselves and for their employees? Do you really think Coleman has enough clout to force Ohio State Leaders, the Dispatch, the Chamber of Commerce, and most of the major businesses in the city to support issue one? If you do that's laughable.

    Do you really want to live in Columbus if if starts to fall apart and people move away because of lack of police and fire support? I know I won't.
