Questions & Answers

1. As chief legal officer of the state of Ohio, how will you ensure the integrity of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches in light of recent ethical violations and financial irregularities? (150 word limit)

As a leader in the effort to expose and pursue the wrongdoing that has occurred in state government, I am already changing the way business is done in Ohio. I have sued the governor twice to force him to release documents relative to Coingate and other scandals and introduced 12 bills that will wipe out the pay-to-play culture that now controls the state and imposes a billion dollar corruption tax on Ohioans every year. As Attorney General I will continue the fight to clean up Ohio by instituting many of the reforms encompassed in my legislation, by recruiting the best available legal minds--including top flight graduates of Ohio's law schools--to work in a reinvigorated Public Integrity Division, by establishing a credible, transparent procedure for appointing special counsel, by reviewing state contract worth $1 million or more, and by aggressively enforcing Ohio's open records and ethics laws.
