Today we roll out the Michelle Schneider Interactive Fundraising Invitation. Read for yourselves why the Sponsors for her fundraiser/tax rally love her as much as we do:
Bill Seitz - "SO WHO WANTS TO RAISE SOME TAXES!!!!! When we served in the State House, Michelle and I stood together to pass all of Bob Taft's tax increases. You can see what our Taft tax hikes have done to grow Ohio's vibrant economy. She deserves to be rewarded for her excellent judgement just like I was."
Jean Schmidt - "I proudly voted for George Bush's $800 Billion Bailout for Billionaires. We know now it was a miserable failure, but only because we didn't spend enough. Michelle understands, just like Barack Obama and I do, that we can spend our way out of any problem."
Alex Triantafilou - "During tough times like these, it's important to have an accomplished, experienced Republican tax-hiker representing us in Columbus. We need her tax-and-spend leadership in the State Senate."
Stan Aronoff - "Michelle shares my dedication to a bigger government that serves lobbyists first. Her support for spending millions upon millions in taxpayer funds for The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center demonstrates that she'll always put the interest of lobbyists above the interests of taxpayers."
Virgil Lovitt - "Without Michelle's guidance, I might not have won my prestigious 2008 Tax Hiker of the Year Award. I have been proud to follow Michelle's tax-hiking example, and it has always served me well. I especially appreciate Michelle's support for more than doubling the Hotel/Motel tax in Hamilton County, which has allowed us to generate more tax revenues from the numerous prostitutes in Sharonville."
Joe Deters - "My boss Stan Chesley told me to endorse her."
Rachel Hutzel - "As evidenced by my endorsement of Betty Montgomery for Governor and Jean Schmidt for Congress, it is my policy to endorse all female candidates in Republican primaries, whether they are qualified or not. Furthermore, there better not be any inappropriate uses of food at this fundraiser. I will prosecute any and all Food Fighting Felons to the fullest exent of the law."
George Vincent - "Michelle Schneider was one of my loyal partners in my successful effort to turn our county party into the Hamilton County Republican Party of Higher Taxes. I know she will fight tirelessly for higher taxes for Ohio just like she did for Hamilton County."
Mary Anne Christie - "Michelle is the latest in a long line of pro-abortion or pro-tax women who I have backed for higher office. I firmly believe Michelle has what it takes to become Governor some day. She will be an even greater Governor than that young man Bobby Taft was, just you see.
George Terwilleger - "I was a pro-choice State Representative. Michelle Schneider will be a great State Senator."
Dick Weiland - "I'm honored that Michelle Schneider chooses to accept my public support and my money, in spite of the 4 months I served in federal prison for my felony conviction. Michelle understands that we convicted felons should always have a seat at the table of government."
John Pepper - "While I am not listed as a Sponsor, Michelle Schneider and I have enjoyed a productive relationship. I have donated thousands of dollars to her campaigns, and she has voted to give millions in taxpayer funds to The Freedom Center. Michelle takes good care of her rich donors."
