ProgressOhio: AWOL Mandel

On January 26, 2012, ProgressOhio posted the following:

Only one day after the Associated Press reported that Ohio Treasurer and Senate candidate Josh Mandel has never attended a Board of Deposit meeting, he skipped yet another one to attend a high-dollar fundraiser in Washington, DC. American Bridge trackers caught Mandel on his way to the fundraiser in DC, as well as his absence from the Board of Deposit meeting.

“I don’t know how Josh Mandel can look Ohio voters in the eye and claim to be 100% dedicated to his job, instead of running for Senate. I suppose he had a lot of practice keeping a straight face from all the times he told voters he planned to serve a full 4-year term,” said Matt Thornton, spokesman for American Bridge 21st Century.
