REPUBLICANS VOTE TO RIG 2014 ELECTIONS IN THEIR FAVOR WITH PASSAGE OF SB 193

AKRON, OH – Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio Citizens PAC, accused the Ohio Republican “Party” of using the legislative process to gain personal political advantage in the 2014 elections. Zawistowski, expressed his outrage in saying “By not exempting current third parties from SB 193 until after next year’s elections, the Republican controlled legislature essentially admitted that they were only changing the rules at this time because they wanted to stop third parties from taking votes away from Governor Kasich and themselves in 2014. They wanted to rig the elections for their own personal benefit and they did. Even Auditor Dave Yost was pushing for the bill to avoid competition from conservatives. It’s that simple and it is that disgusting. They simply do not want competition because they would lose if they ever had to compete in a fair environment like the common citizen has to do at work every day. The citizens of Ohio clearly deserve much better representation. We are thankful that the Libertarian and Green parties are prepared to take this to federal court and we will do everything in our power to support their efforts. We will also pledge to work with them and other parties to make sure that the citizens of Ohio have ballot choices next year that are superior to this Governor and the legislators who voted for this self serving bill.”
