Statement from ORP Communications Director Evan Machan Regarding Toledo Democrats Taken Into Federal Custody

Columbus,OH – Ohio Republican Party Communications Director Evan Machan released the following statement regarding Toledo city council members being taken into federal custody:

“Not one day after a Democrat city councilwoman in Cincinnati pleaded guilty to bribery charges, four members of the Toledo city council were taken into custody by the FBI after being accused of the same charge. Democrats believe they are the party of the people, constantly pandering to voters and pretending to act in their best interests. Someone should tell Ohio Dems that accepting bribes in exchange for votes is not how democracy works. The hypocrisy of the Democrats continues to stun Ohioans. From Toledo to Cincinnati, Democrats should be ashamed of how they have betrayed their constituents.”
