Those Republicans

With all the details coming out about the bankers and the Republicans trying to work together to fight offt regulations, I wonder how Republican candidate for Congress, Steve Stivers, a former bank lobbyist, feels about all this. Is he still against regulations? Does he still believe that payday lenders have the right to charge whatever they want?

It has been well-documented that Stivers has a small business that does consulting and that the business, at last reports, had no clients/business. Is he using the consulting business as a cover for his campaign? Is he so sure of his own election that he knows that he will never have to get clients but it just looks good to have a job?

**** A few weeks ago, someone who has worked with Jon Husted said that Husted is "....the most dangerous man in the state...." Why would this person say that?

Husted is very pro-Republican and has demanded that his friends and supporters be given state construction jobs. While openly and brazenly living in Upper Arlington, he has managed to keep his job as the state senator for Kettering, despite all the evidence that he DOESN'T LIVE IN HIS HOUSE IN KETTERING. (Do you remember what happened to Rick Santorum and his claim that his large family actually lived in a two bedroom home outside of Pittsburgh? Actually, his family lived in a large home in Virginia.) Why do we continue to put up with these liars?

I think that the various Ohio newspapers should start interviewing people in all the state agencies that have worked with Husted. They'll find out what kind of a person he really is.
