Ohio Treasurer Little Joshie Mandel has not gotten any less sleazy, that’s for sure. He lies even when he doesn’t need to, and now we find out that he has been covering up two traffic crashes, ever since 2011.
And the funny thing is, he wasn’t even driving. So why cover them up?
In one case, there would not appear to be anything to hide. But in the other,it turns out he was violating campaign finance law by using a vehicle owned by his campaign for other uses. That is something he would want to cover up:
“During the late-night March accident, Mandel was riding in a vehicle owned by his 2012 U.S. Senate campaign, months after he’d lost his high-profile bid against Democrat Sherrod Brown. Under federal campaign finance law, Senate campaign property can’t be used for personal use or to campaign for a different office, such as treasurer.”
People, remember this when he runs for office again: he covers up if there is no violation, and if there is a violation. How can you trust a guy who keeps that many secrets?
Answer: you can’t.
