19 Reasons To Vote Out Ohio Senator, Former Bush Operative Rob Portman

Koch Brothers Spent 81 Million On First Ad For Ohio Senator Rob Portman Second ad buy from them begins as they try to buy another Senate seat.

3. Portman worked to bring hunters, some drunk, many poor shots, into our national parks to kill and maim mammals, birds, as well as bystander adults children and family pets. ,. Bow and arrow hunting, rifles, and other weapons would have been allowed? Did he stop short of semiautomatics in the woods? Children have been shot to death by hunters while playing in their back yards... Cleveland Amory, former editor of Parade magazine, wrote that he had scene animals alive in the woods with 12 arrows sticking out of them.

4. Portman, Kasich, Attorney General DeWine and other Ohio Republicans were part of a many year conspiracy to deprive third party and Democratic citizens of the vote. Federal judge Algenon Marbley in June of 2016 declared Ohio Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted's practice of eliminating ballots because of, for instance, a missing zip code, unconstitutional. There have been at least 3 separate actions of Jon Husted which have drawn condemnation from the federal bench in 2012 and 2016. Since taking office Husted has eliminated 2 million from the voting rolls, virtually all Democrats and third party voters. US District Court Judge Michael Watson ruled that Husted's elimination of early voting was unconstitutional.

In 2012 a federal judge issued a 17 page condemnation of Ohio Republican scofflaw attorney general Jon Husted.

10 . Portman is a pawn of oil gas and fracking interests in Ohio, a state which has had 800 earthquakes in the Youngstown area alone from fracking, while Ohio has more cities with lead in their water than Michigan. Portman has lobbied for a lack of regulation for utility and coal companies so that they might continue to pollute.

11. Portman is part of the petroplutocracy which has caused over 400,000 deaths so far from rising seawaters submerging island communities and from climate change related droughts and fires.

12 WKSU, Republican radio calling itself 'public radio' is unethically censoring his opponent, Democrat Ted Strickland, former governor of Ohio.

13. Portman hopes the Republican fraud machine which stole the US election from John Kerry (See Robert F Kennedy Jr's article in Rolling Stone) will create another crime for him. Ohio Republican Secretary of State Husted has removed 2 million voters from the rolls, nearly all Democrats, He has stolen the yes vote for marijuana from Ohioans with the help of old Diebold machines (Diebold based in Ohio has sold its voting machine division but many obsolete easily hackable ones remain in Hamilton, Portage, and many other counties in Ohio.)

A bill about the heroin epidemic has passed the Senate 94 to 1. The Koch Brothers are funding ads giving Portman credit while in actuality for 23 years Portman has been a secret supporter of CIA involvement in heroin trade.Portman has supported every illegal war. No other factor as much as US military drug usage has been responsible for the heroin epidemic.


WKSU continued to promote Portman and to ignore Strickland. In May of 2016 it lied and diminished Strickland's ad campaign. Strickland's supporters, national environment groups, unions etc are running ads constantly. WKSU news director is Andrew Meyer.
