Ohio Elections Complaint Filed Against Darlene Dunn

Sylvania, OH – House District 46 candidate Darlene Dunn and the Ohio Democratic Party have recently released television and printed ad campaigns against State Representative Barbara Sears that claim Rep. Sears would support a plan for health insurance companies to deny coverage of early autism detection, diabetes and early breast cancer screening for Ohio families. "There is no factual basis for this argument," states Rep. Sears. "As a licensed Ohio Health Insurance Agent, I have worked with thousands of Ohioans to ensure that small businesses and their employees have coverage that works for them. To say that I would support insurance carriers to deny plan benefits for these issues is ludicrous. In fact, State of Ohio health insurance plans already mandate breast cancer screenings." Dunn's campaign cites the Ohio Business Survey, but has not cited any legislative record.

An elections complaint was filed today for the use of these false statements in television and mail pieces. These repeated false messages are used only to scare residents of the 46th House District who face serious health concerns of their own or health-related issues of family members. The Ohio Chamber of Commerce and NFIB have not only spoken out against these tactics, but have pulled the Ohio Business Survey from their website as the Ohio Democratic Party and candidates across the state have twisted its questions in ad campaigns for several legislative races. The Ohio Chamber of Commerce and NFIB both endorse Rep. Sears' candidacy.

"The voters in House District 46 deserve a leader who understands their needs and has the experience to get things done," says Rep. Sears. "This desperate attempt by the Dunn campaign shows us that she is simply not ready to lead." If you would like more information on Rep. Sears, please visit www.barbarasears.com.
