Lucas County Republican Party FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
10 South Superior St. 12/21/2009
Toledo, Oh 43604
PAUL HOAG AND JEFF SIMPSION ELECTED TO LEADERSHIP OF THE LUCAS COUNTY REPUBLICAN PARTY
By a majority vote of the duly elected / appointed member of the Lucas County Republican Central Committee have elected Paul Hoag to serve as chairman of the central committee. Immediately there after members elected Jeff Simpson as Chairman of the executive Committee.
I say reported, because the party has no money and Mr Rove is not free. One wonders if there is a contract signed or not to assure he will be there. There are some major clouds hanging over Jon's head and a savvy person like Rove would be wise to avoid them.
Karl Rove, who was political strategist and policy adviser for former President George Bush, is scheduled to be the keynote speaker for the Lucas County Republican Party's Lincoln Day Dinner on Jan. 21.
What? Jon Stainbrook is over 2 months late on submitting an amended report? Can't be Jon right? Also when I read that the treasurer wrote a letter saying he is working hard on getting a few receipts, did anyone wonder if he actually wrote it? Fox Toledo has the Free Press story, which for some reason I can't find on the Free Press site. If they don't have the receipts, they will be referred to the Ohio Elections Commission.
LMAO - I can't believe he is saying this.
Jon start with your own party and let Repulicans see your books. You are hiding the books, against party by-laws. You are truly a hypocrite when you go on your crusade about public records.
Clean up corruption? Does that mean you are applying whiteout to the forged signatures?
Why now? All of a sudden there is corruption and you have been the chair for 1.5 years? I don't know what is worse you saying it or others, including the media, allowing you to say it.
Is Jon's offense that he wants to get the money from others hiding the dirty secret he is broke? How can that be? He said he raised so much money and provided such great support? Anyway, sounds interesting. I guess if Jon had any credibility, anything he said would actually have meaning.
Lucas Co GOP investigated by state
DOWNTOWN TOLEDO - An audit released Tuesday by State Auditor Mary Taylor show that at least $3,000 were spent from the Lucas County Republican Party's restricted fund.
In Today's Blade, Jon is taking credit for 4 victories, a judge who won with the Democratic vote split and a Sylvania Township trustee who said that the incumbents were not going to win and of course Jon also takes credit for Rob Ludeman and George Sarantou winning. He is saying that demonstrates he is good and putting an end to the corruption, but forgetting to mention that most of his candidates did not make it. If his team was so good, why did other candidates not make it? Moody? Clark? Etc?
Lucas County GOP Candidates credit party's volunteers, endorsements
Not a good turn of events for Jon Stainbrook. This news is not good for the Republican Party and if Jon actually cared about the party, he would resign. Of course he does not care, but we can hope. His extracurricular activities are bringing the party to a new low, which he should feel ashamed of. If he were to resign, I would be willing to serve in an interim role until the reorganization next year. It is one week until the elections and this is the news we see? The news should be how the democrats have sunk this county and City to the lowest levels ever seen, but no, it is this garbage.
This was sent by email. I am removing who it is and I have no way to verify if this is true or not, which is why I will chalk it up to maybe true / maybe not. An interesting read and if it is who it purports to be, not a good sign for a Jon. Still, I can't assure this is true or not.
Dear Chairman Stainbrook,
Please let this letter serve as notice of my immediate resignation as Parliamentarian of the Lucas County Republican Party (LCRP), and my withdrawal from your personal staff.
Jon Stainbrook flipped through his portfolio of work with the enthusiasm of a teenager showing off his trophy collection - here a photo of Hillary Clinton, there his dog.

The Lucas County Republican Party yesterday announced its slate of endorsed candidates for the six at-large Toledo City Council seats and the mayoral seat.
Jim Moody has been endorsed for the mayoral race.
For the council race:
Mark Clark, Jeff Cromwell, Rob Ludeman, George Sarantou, Hans Schnapp, and Constatine Stamos.
Well, I thank Jon Stainbrook for endorsing these candidates, now I know who I WON'T vote for!
Rob Ludeman? Yea right....Toledo needs a change, and he did nothing when he was on council before. We need to move Toledo forward, not backwards!
There were a lot of reports today. I will link to them all here a bit later.
BOE has witness to possible signature forgery:
More to come...
Free Press has the latest:
The Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office criminal division will begin investigating financial election documents that were signed under the Lucas County Republican Party treasurer’s name.
The signatures, signed as James Damas, were found inconsistent by multiple handwriting experts contacted by Toledo Free Press after the documents were questioned by Glass City Jungle operator and TFP Fact Checker Lisa Renee Ward. TFP requested July 30 that the Board of Elections (BOE) conduct an investigation.
BOE will officially look into the signatures.
The Lucas County Board of Elections has planned a special meeting at 7 p.m. Aug. 3 after its usual meeting at 5 p.m. to “request” an investigation on potentially inconsistent signatures on multiple Lucas County Republican Party financial documents, according to Lucas County BOE Executive Director Linda Howe.
