Jon Stainbrook

Stainbrook's spends $20k in Party Money on legal fees and loses

In an attempt to restore himself and one of his girlfriends to the local Board of Elections, Jon Stainbrook spent nearly $20,000 in local party funds to sue Jon Husted in the Ohio Supreme Court.

He lost.

When all is said and done, the local Republican Party is out $20 grand it could have spent on other things such as money for candidates or funds for local party operations.


Toledo Tea Party gets it right on where the money goes!

Stainbrook just pulled in Rick Perry for his Lincoln Day Dinner. Which pulled all the local Republican politicians in with numbers enough for a possible $22,000 in receipts before expenses, and you know where that money is going?

Not for candidates or funding of the party's operating expenses, but, towards a long shot law suit the party chair has launched against our own Secretary of State Jon Husted.

Majority of Republican Central Committee members recruited by Stainbrook didn’t vote in November Election

Does anyone think this was not the case? :)
Republican Governor John Kasich and the Ohio GOP may not care that over half of the Lucas County Republican Party Central Committee (LCRP-CC) members recruited by Jon Stainbrook did not vote in the November General Election.

Lucas County Republican Party of Clowns sues Husted

"The party's executive committee has filed what's called a *writ of mandamus* with the Ohio supreme court.

Party leaders want the justices to force Jon Husted to seat Kelly Bensman and Ben Roberts as the two new Republicans on the Lucas County Board of Elections.

Party chairman, Jon Stainbrook says, "This was simply to ask the secretary of state to finally do your job and seat the two people the executive committee, the leadership of the party would like to sit on the board of elections.""

Flashback: Ben Roberts' questionable hours and link to past

Jon desperately wants to make it appear that that his picks for the board are clean and experienced. Quite to the contrary, let's flash back:

2010 - Ben Roberts as a political hack:

"Kelly Bensman not tied to the problems of the past" LOL

Jon Stainbrook:

Putting people on that know the process is the first step to getting the board of elections turned around,” Mr. Stainbrook said. “Kelly’s not tied to the problems of the past, and neither is Ben. I’m disappointed that he left John Irish on there.”

Jon must be a real joker, or thinks everyone is stupid, let's refresh on Kelly Bensman:

Where does Kelly Bensman live? Courts recorded she moved

Kelly owes/owed money, while that is of interest, the thing that is more interesting is that the courts can't locate her. Either they are wrong (hard to believe or she does not live at her address).

Toledo Municipal Court:
Case Number: CVF-12-17392
05/13/2013 As to KELLY K BENSMAN, DEFENDANT(S) NOTIFICATION LETTER returned moved, left no address.. Clerk entry
They were able to garnish her wages from her employer Hull and Associates.

According to case Case Number: CVF-12-19618 where she owes $2144 to Capital One, they can't find her either.

Lucas County GOP BOE candidates unqualified and part of the problem

This was sent to me via e-mail:

Below is an open letter I have sent to Secretary of State Jon Husted and members of the State wide press core asking for him to deny the proposed unqualified Board of Elections candidates sent to him by recently fired Board of Elections member and Republican Establishment Faction Party Chairman Jon Stainbrook.

Please read the below letter and if you have any questions please contact me via the listed means below.
