Even though this story shouldn’t have been run at all, Mark Naymik better start sounding more enthusiastic about Shady Sandy’s smears, or not only will he not get a job with Strickland if he wins, but Sandy will literally KILL MARK AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY AS THEY SLEEP!:
Ohio Republican gubernatorial candidate John Kasich did not have special access to an investment he reported on his 1999 congressional financial disclosure statement.
The report – which Kasich’s gubernatorial campaign now says was filled out incorrectly – led one blogger to suggest Kasich had inside information.
The former nine-term congressman and chairman of the U.S. House Budget Committee purchased shares of two mutual funds – Munder’s NetNet Fund and Goldman Sachs’ Internet Tollkeeper Fund — on July 1 of 1999, according to his financial disclosure statement.
But Kasich’s gubernatorial campaign says the transactions were actually made in 2000 but recorded by mistake on the 1999 form, which was completed in 2000.
Blogger Bill Sloat, a former Plain Dealer reporter who writes The Daily Bellwether, correctly reported on his blog that the Goldman Sachs’ Internet Tollkeeper Fund was not publicly available until Oct. 1 1999. But Sloat suggested that Kasich could not have purchased the fund early without special access to the fund.
“Did he have access to inside information? Sloat speculated, offering potential Kasich critics a juicy nugget of political gossip.
There was no financial benefit for changing the date of the transaction. It was simply a clerical error.
The names I want to call Sloat and Sandy are not printable.
