Culture of Corruption, Columbus Edition

Jennifer Brunner is busy trying to skirt election law by shifting leftover resources from her state campaign operation to her campaign for Senate. The overall amount was fairly trivial – some $15,000 in office equipment, but it’s somewhat suspicious that these purchases occurred only a week before shutting down the state campaign to start the Senate campaign.

It’s even more suspicious that her husband’s law firm is storing the stuff, and is behind the “secret agreement” to get the equipment over to the Senate campaign.

Somewhat disturbing that Brunner, the supposed top election official in Ohio, isn’t either smart enough to understand what’s going on, not in touch with the shenanigans her husband is up to, or simply doesn’t care about these sorts of things as long as she wins.
