Liars keep it up
Tactically, this resistence by DeWine looks to us like pissing into the wind, but if your campaign has already reached the kamikaze stage maybe it doesn't matter:
The Republican Party last night refused to cancel commercials that claim Sherrod Brown was a longtime tax scofflaw - even though the state of Ohio says the ad's claim is untrue.
. . .
Jon Allen, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, the successor agency to the employment bureau, said the claims suggesting Brown didn't pay the tax bill for 12 or 13 years are false. His department researched the matter last year, when the Brown campaign asked about the lien.
