OH-06: Trusting Republicans With Money Dept.

Posted by DavidNYC

Ah, Charlie Wilson must be feeling pretty good about this. What's the only thing dumber'n not getting 50 signatures to get on the ballot? Bouncing a $500 check for your property tax bill. And that's exactly what Chuck Blasdel, the main Republican candidate in OH-06, did just recently. As the Wilson campaign put it:

"Because of this, [Blasdel] is the perfect Republican candidate for Congress — fiscally irresponsible and a deficit spender," said Jason Burke, campaign manager for state Sen. Charles Wilson, a Democratic write-in candidate for the 6th District seat. "It's no wonder Washington, D.C., Republicans recruited him."

With any luck, we may yet snatch victory from defeat's scaly jaws.

I'm hopeing Ted Strickland running for Gov. will carry OH-06 with him again. He needs to make a few stops in the District during his campaign for himself and whoever the Democrats nominate.

Unreal. What is it about these southern Ohio politicians trying so hard to destroy their careers through pure, unbridled stupidity? Aside from Jean Schmidt and Charlie Wilson, we now have Chuck Blasdel with a scandal somewhat similar to former Cincinnati Mayor Jerry Springer, who decided to pay for the services of a hooker with his credit card.

They're not the only ones. Bob Ney is also from this area (he grew up in Belmont co.), and this is also the old stomping ground of Wayne Hays, the guy who was caught swimming naked in the reflecting pool with his secretary. Interesting factoid: after hays retired from congress in '76, he went back to the state leg. and was beaten in 82 or 84 by, of all people, Bob Ney.
