Columbus, OH — As early voting gets underway today, Ohioans are faced with tough questions, with many even wondering who will represent them in Congress and the state legislature thanks to Republicans’ failures to do their jobs and pass fair maps. But the toughest question facing voters is which Frank LaRose are they going to get on any given day.
Last week, in a room full of Republican activists and donors, LaRose leaned in on impeaching Justice Maureen O’Connor for doing her job and upholding the Ohio Constitution. Then today, LaRose tried to walk those comments back and deflect any criticism that’s come his way.
It’s clear LaRose is trying to have it both ways – he can’t afford to lose Republican support in a party that’s already so skeptical of him that a party leader tried to leave him off of the endorsement slate. But he’s also worked hard to curate a phony image of bipartisanship that never bears out in his words, deeds or actions.
This all leaves Ohioans to wonder which Frank LaRose is the real Frank LaRose, because Frank LaRose is a phony.
“Two-faced Frank LaRose is at it again, talking out of both sides of his mouth and showing Ohioans he can’t be trusted. The only thing Ohioans can count on Frank LaRose to do is betray them in order to advance his own interests. Instead of blaming anyone but himself for the election chaos he’s caused, it’s time for LaRose to do his job and pass a fair map, ” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
And while LaRose is out on his apology tour, doing everything but his job, Cleveland.com is reporting on the headaches voters will face because of the chaos LaRose created:
“Due to printing delays, voters who will show up in person starting Tuesday through the week’s end will receive a ballot that is a PDF printout of the normal ballot. Voters will each complete it, then seal it in a security envelope and turn it in, Cuyahoga County Board of Elections Director Tony Perlatti said,” writes Cleveland.com.
The cost of corruption Ohioans are paying thanks to Frank LaRose, Mike DeWine and their Republican friends is too high a price to pay. Ohio Democrats are offering a better way forward: investing in Ohio workers and helping working families get ahead.
