(Shawn Kasych at closing time)
Dear fellow tax hikers, please join us in welcoming Columbus Statehouse insider Shawn Kasych to Cincinnati to help save our friend Peter Stautberg's campaign. Stautberg is our endorsed candidate for State Representative due to his advocacy of Bob Taft's tax increases and the $1,000 donation he received from beloved Bengals Owner Mike Brown. Kasych has been dispatched to Cincinnati for the rest of the campaign to make sure Stautberg gets the W.
Shawn Kasych - no relation to Governor John Kasich - is Policy Advisor for the Ohio House of Representatives. As such, he has a vested interest in ordering voters across Ohio to send good, moderate, establishment Republicans to Columbus to make life easy on insiders like himself. He could not have found a better candidate than Stautberg.
His opponent, COAST founder Tom Brinkman, has fought tax increases his entire life. While serving as State Representative, Brinkman voted against all of Bob Taft's tax hikes. Even worse, he strongly opposed the Bob Bedinghaus stadium deal and campaigned against the $777 million Democratic Sales Tax increase in 2007. When Republicans raise taxes, Brinkman says no and that is completely unacceptable to us and other Republican insiders.
Mike Brown and the Columbus insiders are pulling out all the stops to defeat Brinkman. That's why they have dispatched Mr. Insider Kasych to Cincinnati. We want all you tax hikers to know we are working hand-in-hand with them. Together, we will stop Taxkiller Tom Brinkman and return establishment Republican Peter Stautberg to Columbus where he will continue to do as he's told.
