UPDATED: Cliff Arnebeck on Ohio Racketeering Complaint Against Karl Rove and the Chamber of Commerce

Current Update: Ohio Chamber reneges on commitment to produce names of contributors


At today's hearing at the Ohio Elections Commission, Bradley Smith, former chairman of the Federal Elections Commission, serving as counsel to Partnership for Ohio's Future, stated that all anyone had to do was ask for their list of contributors--and Cliff did not ask.  TV 10 and a film maker videoed the hearing, and a court reporter recorded it as well.
 
After the hearing I asked and was assured by Linda Woggon in the presence of Brad Smith that the she would send the information to me.  I served subpoenas for the information when I did not receive anything.  Brad then called me and said that they would have the material by 2:00 pm, or 3:00 at the latest.  At 3:30 a delivery person arrived at my office with a motion to quash our subpoenas.
 
The Chamber has returned to a policy of secrecy after four election cycles in which it published the names of its contributors to influence candidate elections.

Election Attorneys File Racketeering Complaint Against Karl Rove and Tom Donohue's Elections Operations - Complaint Charges Fraud, False Statement And Illegal Coordination

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by ProtectOurElections.org:

Yesterday, Ohio election attorney Cliff Arnebeck filed a two-count complaint with the Ohio Election Commission against The Partnership for Ohio's Future, an affiliate of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, alleging two overarching charges under state racketeering laws. First, that the Partnership is "...not truly independent, but rather has been coordinated with the Republican candidates, their agents, committees, parties and their de facto coordinated national campaign being directed by Karl Rove." Second, that the Partnership is making false statements by saying that its ads are "not authorized by a candidate or a candidate's committee," when in fact they are.
