Ohio Election Commission Request Potential Criminal Penalties Against Cincinnati NAACP President  

Enclosed is a letter from the Executive Director for the Ohio Election Commission (OEC).  The letter addresses Rob Richardson refusal to honor the subpoena issued by the OEC in the "dark money" case.  Richardson signed three checks totaling $275K and a third check for $25K from his union but refused to appear before the OEC to explain after the entity he funded plead guilty to all charges.  

The OEC directs the Attorney General's office "to potential criminal penalties" and "I would encourage your office (AG office) to seek the strongest penalties that the Court would believe appropriate based on this affront to the Commission's authority" said Philip Richter, Executive Director for the OEC.

The OEC served two subpoenas on Rob Richardson that he specifically ignored. "It is clear that the OEC plans to take Rob Richardson to court for his failure to testify after writing $275K of illegal "dark money" attacking my 2013 Cincinnati City Council race. Richardson believes he is above Ohio Election Law and the OEC is determined to prove him wrong.  This matter is not over," Smitherman said.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE LETTER ENCLOSED AND FORWARD TO OTHERS.
