The question is not if Washington Local violated state law during its Issue 2 levy campaign in 2014, but to what extent

Updated with Patrick Hickey's statement

My curiosity was stirred in watching everything going on at Washington Local and stirred even more once Superintendent Patrick Hickey blocked me on Twitter for stating the obvious. Seeing a disturbing behavior here I decided to look at some things that were done in the past to really get a grasp on how things are run in Washington Local….and I did not have to go far to find out how bad things were run during the 2014 Issue 2 levy campaign.

We can all agree that when you operate in a certain environment, there are some things that are well known to anyone including rules and regulations. If you pay a lawyer, you expect them to know the laws and proper procedures. But it seems like "Levy 101" items at Washington Local are missed by the leaders who are paid to know what is OK and not OK. There are no excuses on why these laws are being violated, and there are questions that the citizens of the district need to ask the board members and their administration (I don’t live in the district).

(EXPOSEDIT) On Sunday, December 6th 2009 Shermaine L. Hutchins aka “Hutch Daddy Dolla” of The Core DJ’s and teamed up with his southern friends and family out of Mississippi to pull the biggest scam in the Northwest Ohio & Southeast Michigan area. The concert took place at The Zodiac located at 135 S. Byrne in Toledo, Ohio.

Below is a statement from Richard Gabai, a friend of Rich Iott and his family:

I have known and worked closely with Rich Iott for many years.

First things first; Rich Iott is one of the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel people I know.

We are business partners and very close personal friends. One of the first things I explained to Rich when we started working together was that I don't work on Shabbat - the Jewish Sabbath. He said, "That's great, I'm glad you take a break every week and spend quality time with your family!"

Rich Iott / Jack Smith talk about the issues in race for 9th District

Iott started out , saying he is upset at what is going on in our government and no one is listening . He serves in the Ohio Military Reserve as a colonel. Smith was a US Marine for 22 years, serving in Vietnam and Desert Storm. Both men spoke highly of the U.S. Constitution , Smith hailing it as a ‘ bright path’, Iott saying everything should be vetted through the Constitution. A panel of 3 asked questions of the men, Scott Allegrini of the host group Children of Liberty, Tim Higgins of the blowing smoke blog, and Kristin Rapin of the Toledo Free Press.

Ohio Politics as usual?

This forwarded to me by e-mail:

Dear Ohio Citizen
Below is an alarming example of what the politics as usual. A candidate is being cut out by an unethical secretary of state. Please take the time to read the information below and call the media and alert them of this travesty. The status quo will continue if you do nothing. We must stand up to corruption and say, “NO More!”

Here are the facts:
