What a bunch of hypocrites ! Politicians have taken money from EVERY lobbying group in the US. Why is this any different? Has Dewine ever taken money from any lobbyists? Has Dan Gilbert spread any money around? What a joke!

Why don't they return ALL the lobby money they have received? How much did Gilbert spread around for his casino? MILLIONS! Why don't the politicians leave these businesses alone and TAX them. 500 cafes, 500 rents 2500 jobs ! Wake up morons!
