You have got to be kidding me.
You might have heard that there was a ceremony at the Statehouse today to honor Ohio’s fallen heroes. The families of 16 fallen soldiers were present at a joint session of the General Assembly and then followed the Governor to the Statehouse Atrium for a wreath laying ceremony.
By all accounts it was a solemn and emotional ceremony for all involved and worthy of the respect that these fallen soldiers, and their families, rightfully deserve.
Apparently the Ohio Democrat Party didn’t get the message.
Instead of joining the Governor and other elected officials at this ceremony they sent their campaign tracker to videotape the Governor in an attempt to score political points.
Don’t believe me? We have pictures.
I don’t dispute that campaigns can get nasty sometimes on both sides, but an event to honor Ohio’s fallen heroes is not the venue for such classless behavior. If you want to videotape the Governor at other public events I get it, but taking advantage of today’s ceremonies is ridiculous.
I am hoping for, but certainly don’t expect, an apology from Ohio Democrats to all of those offended by today’s actions.
